Obituary for Jacqueline Kay Gard

Jacqueline Kay (Powell) Gard, 83, of Elmwood, lost her very long battle with Alzheimer’s on Thursday, August 25, 2022.

Born on July 28, 1939 to James F. and Gladys A. (Strassburger) Powell, she married the love of her life, Carroll W. Gard, on April 18, 1959 in Peoria. He died January 2, 1996. She is also preceded in death by her brothers, Jim, Jerry, John and sister, Joanne Svymbersky.

She is survived by 4 daughters, Kathy (John) Smith of Bartonville, Julie (Kevin) Reynolds of North Carolina, Carrie Kelly of Farmington and Dianna (Jeff) Price of Elmwood, with whom she lived and were her caregivers. She also leaves behind her brother, Dan Powell of Arizona; 12 Grandchildren, Adam, Aaron, Andrew and Alyssa Smith, Jessica Windsor, Amanda Reynolds, Brandon Reynolds, Lynsey Silverthorn, Carrollyn Sorenson, Kayte LaFollett, Megan Spring, Jesse LaFollett, and step-grandson, Zach Kelly. She also leaves 14 great-grandchildren and five step-great grandchildren, who could still bring out her love for children up to the time of her death.

She had many talents over the years, but her cake baking stood out. She baked so many cakes for friends and family. She worked at Kroger as a cake decorator and retired from there. She was a very loving and caring woman and helped anyone whom she came in contact with. She helped so many women in need when she worked at Woman’s Strength.

Her family would like to give a huge thank you to Jeff Price, who was her care giver and took such great care of her.

Her funeral will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday, August 30, 2022 at Wright & Salmon Mortuary. Pastor Steven Barch will officiate. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service. Entombment will follow in Resurrection Mausoleum.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be given to the Alzheimer’s Association.
