Jackie Lynch Anderson Jones

December 18, 1937 — May 7, 2024

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beautiful wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and dear friend, Jacqueline Bukove Lynch Anderson Jones. Mom passed away peacefully in her sleep on May 7, 2024, after a valiant and long battle with cancer.

 

Jackie was born to Clara C. Johnson and Michael J. Bukove on December 18, 1937, in Ogden, Utah.  She was the only child born to Michael and Clara, but did have a half-brother, Verdan and a half-sister, Virginia, that were older. Her early years were spent in New Mexico where her father ran a restaurant, motel, and saloon with his brothers. When she was old enough to go to school they returned to Ogden. She was a proud Ogden High School graduate and was an active member in planning class reunions until the last couple of years when her health was failing. She was also a graduate of Weber State College.

 

She married Richard B. Lynch in June of 1958. They are the proud parents of three children, Cindy, Michael, and Chad.  Being raised as an only child she had instant brothers and sisters when she married Richard. They spent many happy hours with his family at Bear Lake and enjoyed going skiing and golfing. Jackie found a love for travel on their first trip to Europe.  Richard and Jackie were later divorced.

 

Jackie’s father passed away in 1969, and her mom Clara retired from teaching and became an integral part of the family. They had a special relationship, caring for one another as Grandma’s family was far away. A love of reading and playing bridge were just two of the things they shared. Mom’s love of bridge continued through the rest of her life, where she played up until the last two weeks of her life.

 

She married John B. Anderson in April of 1975. They purchased a motor home and spent many happy hours traveling with their children. Their favorite places were Jackson Hole and Lava Hot Springs, anywhere they could be in God’s country. John would fish and mom would read. After selling the motor home, they purchased some time shares and their traveling increased. Hawaii, San Diego, and Jackson were the places most frequently visited.  John passed away in 2001.

 

She married William Jones in April 2003, at the Alumni House at Weber State. They have had a marvelous life together. They have traveled the world with some of their favorite trips being Niagara Falls, Alaska, the Panama Canal, and the Rhine River trip. Their homes in St. George, Utah and Star Valley, Wyoming, became gathering places for friends and family. Many memories were made with grandchildren playing games and spending time with them.

 

Mom had a variety of jobs throughout her life including as a seasonal employee at IRS, and as secretary at South Ogden Junior High. The job of a lifetime came when Weber State hired a new football coach, Mike Price. He hired mom as his secretary, and they became quite a team. This began her love for Weber State Athletics, and it continued for the rest of her life. It was a perfect fit for her, she loved football, the coaches, and the players. They became her adopted family. She truly bleeds purple. When she married Bill, they decided she needed to retire. For her years of service at Weber State, she was given football and men’s basketball tickets for life. You could always find them there on game day with their friends and their purple gear.

 

Mom was an active member of Elim Lutheran Church throughout her life. Most of her lifelong friends are from Elim. Her service in the church included playing the piano for Sunday School, teaching summer Bible School, LCW President and circle leader. She also served on the church council for 12 years. Her favorite services were Christmas Eve and Easter Sunday.

 

Mom loved Bill and her children and grandchildren very much. She also loved bridge, golf, reading, and Golden Girls. She loved to visit and talk to people. She was a member of several bridge groups and will be missed by many.

 

Mom is survived by her best friend and co-pilot, Bill; children, Cindy (Mike) Read of Farr West, Michael Lynch of Tucson, Chad (Tani) Lynch of South Weber; adopted children, Sharon (Stan) Oxendal of Spokane; Mark (Sutton) Jones of Roy, Kristina (Chad) Stoddard of Hooper; and Robert (Tammy) Jones of Plain City; 22  grandchildren, 41 great-grandchildren, with one on the way; and a nephew, Michael Bukoue. She was preceded in death by a son-in-law, grandson, a great-grandson, half-brother, half-sister, and a nephew.
