Jaquetta “Jackie” A. Persing
Jan. 1, 1946 – May 31, 2019
Jaquetta “Jackie” A. (Plambeck) Persing, 73, of Crete passed away May 31, 2019, at Bryan Health in Lincoln. Jackie was born Jan. 1, 1946, in Lincoln to Gerald and Lloyda (DeWitt) Plambeck. She graduated from Crete High School in 1964. She married Jay I. Persing on Sept. 5, 1964. They had three children, Deb, John and Brian. They raised their children in Hallam and resided and rebuilt their home after the tornado in 2004. Jackie moved to Crete not too many years after Jay's passing in 2005.
Jay and Jackie enjoyed camping, especially going to Texas with their friends in the winter months. After moving to Crete, Jackie continued to enjoy camping and fishing, and you could find her at a ball game any day of the week (unless it was too cold, then you could find her in her car). While she was able, she was on the move and loved going on bus tours across the United States. She also enjoyed socializing with friends, whether it be going out to eat, watching a movie, playing pitch or sitting outside gabbing at night with her neighbors. Jackie was an active member of the Hallam UCC Church.
She is survived by her daughter, Deb Bank of Lincoln; sons, John and Dawn Persing of Waverly and Brian and Missy Persing of Wilber; brother, Denny Plambeck of Tucson, Arizona; grandchildren Cheyenne and Duncan Engh of Waverly, Justin and Kristin Bank of Lincoln, Cody Persing and fiancé Leah Sharp of Clatonia, Cierra and Cassidy Persing of Waverly and Hunter and Madison Persing of Wilber; great-grandson, Westin Engh of Waverly; sister and brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins and special friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Jay Persing; parents, Gerald and Lloyda Plambeck; mother-in-law, Mildred Persing; and sisters-in-law, Anna Plambeck and Pat Arneson.
A funeral service was held June 4, 2019, at Lincoln Memorial Funeral Home in Lincoln. Condolences may be sent to the family at lincolnfh.com.
