Jacqueline "Jackie" Rose Meyn Renfrow was born on April 15, 1923 and passed away peacefully at St. Mary's Hospital after a brief illness on April 7, 2024, just 8 days shy of her 101st birthday.

 Jackie graduated from the Colorado State College of Education in July of 1945 and worked as a teacher. She married Melvern "Mel" Renfrow on June 22, 1947, and they were married for 52 years before his passing. Their daughter, Rena Hoefling, passed in 2022. Jackie was known to be a great cook with a fun sense of humor! 

 She will be missed by many. She leaves behind her nieces and nephews and their families: Susan Fuoco (Dr. Stuart) Aanes, Jeannie Fuoco (Dr. Hal) Baer, Bob (Anna Maria) Fuoco, Scott (Kim) and David Griffin and Lance Paradis.
