On June 18, 2022, Jackie Ann Lyons left this earth peacefully on her terms to reunite with her Mom (Regina), Dad (Albert), Sister (Eline), Son (Mark) and many friends in heaven. Jackie is the loving mother and mother-in-law of Mike (Brooke) Lyons and Michelle (Scott) Coe. She is blessed with 6 grandchildren: Taylor and Tyler Lyons, Kaylee Coe, Alicia, Marissa and Noah Lyons. Jackie is survived by her siblings Evie Harlow and Mike (Diane) Schaff, many nieces and nephews.
Jackie was born in Spokane, WA on April 14, 1943 and graduated from Rogers High School. She married John ‘Jack’ Lyons and moved to Southern California to help Jack purse his dreams. Jackie made being a stay-at home mom for her three children look easy. She never appeared to be stressed or worried, was very organized and made our house the place where all the neighborhood kids wanted to come.
In 1986, the family moved back to Washington and settled in Deer Park starting two businesses: first Deer Park Auto Parts and then in 1988, Jackie’s Cafe. Jackie’s Café became the hot spot for the local coffee drinkers providing homemade style café food and local gossip. After attempting to retire in 1998, she closed Jackie’s Café but Deer Park had other plans for her. She was recruited to continue cooking in the community with a short stint at Deer Park Lanes and finishing out her career at Divot’s (DP Golf Course). She was finally able to officially hang up her spatula and close the recipe book at the age of 72.
A celebration of life will be held Saturday August 6, 2022 at the Deer Park Masonic Center located at 310 N Main Street, Deer Park, WA from 1 to 3 pm.
