Jacquelyn Horan “Jackie” McDougall received her spiritual body from Jesus Christ on July 20, 2008, after a lengthy illness. Jackie was born in Wenatchee on September 24, 1924, to John Rankin and Helen (Vandivort) Horan, the eldest of four daughters, and was raised in the family home built by pioneers, Michael and Margaret Horan. She attended local schools and graduated from Wenatchee High School in 1942. Jackie then attended Washington State College, graduating in 1946, with degrees in foreign language and music. While at WSC, she was affiliated with Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority and was the business manager at the college newspaper, the Evergreen, from 1945 until 1946. Jackie returned home to Wenatchee after college and later met and married Robert Duncan McDougall on January 24, 1947. Three sons were born of that marriage; Douglas John, Stuart Dean and Scott Horan McDougall. The McDougall family resided in the old Horan home when Jackie’s mother moved into town and the boys were raised there until they attended college. The family tended the Horan fruit packing facility and orchard property for several years. Jackie was active in many organizations, only a few of which included the League of Women Voters, President of Chelan County Republican Women, President of AAUW (Wenatchee Branch), both President and Vice-President of the Washington State Republican Women, state committeewoman for Chelan County Republican Central Committee, secretary for the State Republican Central Committee, delegate and secretary to the National Republican Convention (Richard Nixon). She served on the YMCA board of directors and was the area coordinator for the youth and government program, and was appointed to the local Selective Service board. Her professional career included stints on the board of directors at Horan Brothers, Incorporated, President and office manager of Mac’s Pak Fruit Company, and relocating to Portland, OR for a short while to manage a travel agency. On her return to Wenatchee, Jackie became a counselor for the local alcohol and drug treatment center, where she helped many people turn to a life of sobriety. She was a hero to many Hispanic clients, as she spoke fluent Spanish and could relate to them and their specific problems. Jackie was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Patricia (Allan) Wallin; and grandson, Corey Wayne McDougall. She is survived by her sons, Douglas (Diana), Stuart (Sharon) and Scott (Lynda) McDougall, all of Wenatchee; sisters, Colleen (Bob) Hein of Yakima and Margaret (Tom) Names of Tacoma. Her warm presence will be sorely missed by her grandchildren; great-grandchildren; nieces and nephews; and all who knew and loved her. Thanks also to Dr. John Gill and the staff at Highgate Senior Living who cared for Jackie in her last months of life. A Memorial of Jackie’s Life will be held at the United Methodist Church, 941 Washington Street, on Friday, July 25, 2008, at 10:30 a.m., with the Reverend Kel Groseclose officiating. Memorials may be made to Children’s Hospital in Seattle in Jackie’s name. Funeral arrangements are under the care of Jones & Jones ~ Betts Funeral Home.
