Jackie Hintz, our sweet mother, peacefully passed away Sunday, November 21, 2021. She was born Jacquelyn Rae Nesbit on Christmas Day, 1927, in Wadena, Minnesota to James and Margaret Nesbit. As a small child, the Nesbit Family moved to Jamestown, ND, then to Tacoma before settling in Aberdeen, Washington and then on
to California in the later years. Jackie graduated from Weatherwax High School in Aberdeen, Washington in 1946 and then worked as a telephone operator. She met her future husband Fred Hintz who was stationed in Westport with the U.S. Coast Guard, and they were married soon thereafter in Berkeley, California. Later, they moved to Auburn, Washington in 1953 to make their home and build their family.
Jackie was preceded in death by her parents, loving husband, sister, and brother. Jackie is survived by her son, Jim Hintz and wife Annette; daughter, Lisa Rankin and husband Brent; granddaughters Amber Moore, her husband Chris, and Sarah Lydiard and her husband Chris; and three great grandchildren, Avery Mae, Colton & Austyn. She was also very blessed to have six extended grandchildren: Christa, Tristan, Shaun, Candace, Kerrie, and Bronson, as well as many extended great grandchildren she called her own. Mom was the best mother ever, always happy and lived life to the fullest. She always brought joy to those around her and those whose lives she touched and was loved by so many. She will be so greatly missed.
