Jacqueline A. Pendley

September 20, 1979 ‒ October 08, 2020

Sunbury, Ohio

Jacqueline “Jackie” Pendley, age 41, of Sunbury passed away on Thursday October 8, 2020. Much too soon and took a piece of our hearts with her.  She was born in Chicago IL on September 20, 1979 to Bill Pendley and Tamma (Daumen) Hughes.

Far too many words come to mind when describing Jackie but the one most suited is simply “Awesome”. She was Genuine, Beautiful, and so easy to Fall in Love With. She was a Force, a Spark, a Strength she could be your Best Friend or your most Formidable Adversary. Her Laughter and Antics brought a room to life. Her Kindness and Generosity was felt by all that knew her. I am not sure she ever met a stranger. She made you feel as though you had known her all your life and she would be your trusted confidant. She loved her family deeply and felt truly blessed to have JJ as her son. She was always proud of him.  She will be remembered and missed by so many whose’ lives she has touched.

Jackie is survived by her son, Jason “JJ” Winner: niece Darrian Wheeler: nephew Dylan Wheeler: nephew and his family Dustin Wheeler and Dustin’s love Taylor, Christian James, Kinsley and Liam; soulmate Rich Reber; father, Bill Pendley and his wife, Lucy Pendley; mother, Tamma Hughes; and her many friends that have shared her life.

Jackie was preceded in death by her sister, Nicolle “Nickie” Wheeler, brother, Michael Salvatore; grandmother, Myrna “Nana” Isaac and grandfather, Bobby Isaac.

Family will receive friends from 2 PM to 3:30 PM on Saturday, October 17, 2020 at DeVore-Snyder Funeral Home, 637 N. State Route 61, (at SR3), Sunbury, where a Funeral Service will be held at 3:30 PM.  Mr. Jerry Jodery officiating.  Following the service, A Celebration of Life Gathering will be held the at the VFW in Sunbury.  Contributions may be made to American Cancer Society in Jackie’s memory.

    There are just no words to express the sadness and grief we feel from this terrible news. We cannot begin to imagine the anguish of losing all of your children in such a short time span. May you all manage to get through this knowing that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
    This child was special in so many ways as we’re sure you know. She was so smart, witty, kind, funny, just a pleasure to be around, and she always “called them like she saw them” (honestly) which we really admired.
    Thank you for sharing this wonderful human being with us all. She will be sorely missed!

  • Jackie, You will truly be missed. Grateful for all the knowledge you bestowed upon me. You took me under your wing and showed me the way. I’m honored to have worked along side you. Such a kind soul.

  • I am sad at the loss of a very special friend, Jackie always called me Mama Jean and I loved her like a daughter, I always teased her she was my daughter from another Mother, she would laugh, we talked several times a week, She would often call me for recipes, She would make pasta for her Nana and would always bring me some, I will miss my Jackie, my prayers are with her family during this time of grief, rest in peace baby girl.

    Love, Mama Jean

  • So sorry to the family Tamra has been through way more then any mother should have to and my heart goes out to her.I always liked Jackie always friendly and kind,funny loved to listen to her talk.

  • We can’t imagine the pain losing your children must be. We pray for your comfort. Let your good memories help you through this time.
    Ed and Linda

  • I feel like my friendship with Jackie was just beginning. I have only known her for a few years but I am deeply saddened by her death. She was fun loving, smart and kind. She could make you laugh when you thought you were going to cry. What a breath of fresh air. No pretense or drama, she just took life as it came. The fact that we have lost someone on earth who had such a calming presence during this time of constant unrest and turmoil, is tragic. I will miss her so much, my heart goes out to her family and loved ones. We have truly lost a wonderful human being and true friend.

  • Jackie Was a blessing and amazing woman . Very hard working , but also a great friend , and listener . I’m so heart broken to hear of her passing for anytime I needed some advice , help or someone to talk to at work , she was one of the seldom people who could help and understand what I was going thru and then always find something at the end to cheer you up and laugh and say it be ok ! She will truly be missed by so many ! Condolences and prayers, 🙏🏻😇❤️ R.I.H Jackie

  • Joy.
    Pure Joy.

    These are the first words that come to mind whenever I think of Jackie.
    This Gal was such joy to be around.

    I first met Jackie when I was sent up to the Charge Off Department at Discover Card where we both worked. I was seated beside her and my first shift beside her was all it took to know Id found a new Lifetime Friend.
    She was so Genuine. So Honest. I learned so much from her about the job. But later years at Discover Card, even though we were at different departments, I was rewarded by Jackie’s warmth and kindness when I overheard her tell someone else :” Just do what Tina Belcher does ‘ Kill ‘em with kindness ‘ “
    Here she was: in a higher up position than I was…. but telling others about me ! When instead She was the one with much more knowledge than I. So, that stuck with me. Endured her even more to my heart.
    Jackie was someone that just her presence could Lift Up Your Day.
    Many times I could be struggling with something and Jackie would appear…. and troubles just seemed to take a Backseat. Again…. She was Pure Joy !

    Once, when my husband and I were about to leave on vacation we just had a dilemma about several kittens that had lost their mama and I was hand feeding.
    Which brought up a real problem about our leaving. When I mentioned it to Jackie she said “ I’ll take them and feed them for you”. Well to say the least she was a Godsend.
    When we returned from vacation she decided she wanted to keep one of them, her dear beloved Chubbs, but oh then….she wasn’t done. Before she was done she had found homes for the rest of the litter !!! This. This was The Jackie I knew and loved. Always going the extra mile, extra step. That’s who she was. Always giving her ALL which was considerable ! She never gave up and she always gave her Best !
    She was The Signature Face of Discover Card. ( these are borrowed words from another Discover Card employee that knew and loved Jackie also ) but truer words were never spoken for Jackie was the epitome of Doing The Right Thing which is one of Discover Cards Mission Statements.
    I talked with Jackie on the phone after my accident that ended my Discover Card career. And her Welcomed voice was So dear to me. And all the calls and texts in those five years since were so dear and precious to me !
    I cannot express my feelings when I heard of her passing. First a seriously Hard Jolt to my body, my mind. My spirit.
    I cannot imagine this world without Jackie in it. Her constant constant smiles. Her sense of Right. Her contagious Spirit !!! Her Joy !
    To say that she will be missed is an understatement !
    My only consolation is : Heaven just got a Better Place to be !

    My heart is in anguish Jackie at losing you from my life.

    Go with God My Friend. I will miss you dearly.
    Your Friend, Tina Belcher
