Mrs. Floyd was born on Saturday, April 8, 1933, in Effingham, South Carolina, to the late Clifton John Evans and the late Jennie Lee Joyner Evans.

In addition to her parents, Mrs. Floyd was preceded in death by her husband, Lucien C. “Buddy” Floyd, Jr.; sisters, Thedis Lee Evans Barrineau and Bobbie Jean Evans Odum; grandson, Brennan West; son-in-law, Ron King; and brothers-in-law, Bethea Barrineau, Oscar Odum, and Scott Turner; and in-laws, Dan and Lucille Farley.

While growing up, Mrs. Floyd’s family lived in several South Carolina cities, including Effingham, Coward, Hartsville, Dillion, and a final move to Lake City when she was in the seventh grade. She graduated from Lake City High School in 1951. Under her senior picture in the yearbook was written, “Cute as a doll. Beautiful wavy hair. Unceasing talker. Loves fun - Hates to study.” This description of her remained true throughout her life.

After high school Mrs. Floyd graduated from Carolina College of Commerce, in Florence, South Carolina, in 1953, with a focus on secretarial studies. She married a local guy, “Buddy” Floyd. He was in the United States Air Force. Their family lived in Sumter, South Carolina; San Antonio, Texas; Washington, D.C.; Lake City, South Carolina; Denver, Colorado; and finally, Warner Robins, Georgia, in December of 1967. During these traveling years, Jackie was a homemaker.

In 1976, when her daughters were older, she attended childcare classes at the Houston Vocational Center in Warner Robins. She worked as a teacher for three-year-olds at the Koral Klassic Daycare in Warner Robins for 17 ½ years.

Mrs. Floyd was also a talented seamstress, sewing clothes for herself and daughters. She also did upholstery for furniture in their home. She preferred simple styles. Ever since her days spent in Texas, Mrs. Floyd loved wearing flip-flops. She also loved singing and continued to sing 1950 songs and gospel hymns until her last days. She also enjoyed dancing and doing the jitterbug. Mrs. Floyd was full of laughter. She was small in stature but a mighty force. One never had to wonder what she was thinking. Mrs. Floyd enjoyed old movies, especially suspense movies; throughout the years, she also kept up with her favorite soap opera, “Days of Our Lives.”

Mrs. Floyd was a member of Evergreen Baptist Church from 1967 until 1980. She enjoyed teaching children’s Sunday School in the 1970s. For over three decades, she was a current member of Green Acres Baptist Church.

Mrs. Floyd lived in the same house from December 1967, until three years ago, when she made the move to Summer’s Landing in Warner Robins Assisted Living. She lived in Apartment 32 of the Memory Care Unit and took her final breath there. The staff at Summer’s Landing loved and cared for her. They affectionally called her “Jack Jack.” She always giggled and blew them kisses. They said she always seemed happy and full of energy. During her final months, Georgia Hospice cared for her as well. The staff could get her to participate in most activities by singing, “You Are My Sunshine” with her. Mrs. Floyd’s favorite quote was, “Life is to be fortified with many friendships - to love and to be loved is the greatest happiness of existence.”
