Jacqueline Jean Toothman, 77, died Monday, Sept. 18, 2006, at her home in Libby.
She was born Oct. 21, 1928, in Nebraska to Jack and Dollie Willis. Jacqueline moved shortly thereafter with her family to Idaho, where they lived in Caldwell and Nampa.
She married Okey B. Toothman in 1945. They moved to southern California in the 1950s, residing in San Bernardino County for many years. While there, she was a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church.
