Jackie Jo Broyles, age 65, Blue Mound, Kan., passed away on Thursday, Oct. 21, 2021. She was born in Belleville, Ill., the daughter of Jack Loyd and JoAnn Freer Collins. She graduated from Fort Scott High School. Jackie was united in marriage to the love of her life, Terry Broyles, on March 29, 1975. To this union, four children were born. When the children were old enough, Jackie attended Neosho County Community College to become a registered nurse.

Jackie was a member of The Barn Church. She enjoyed traveling and spending time with her husband on the sailboat, watching old movies, documentaries, history, reading countless novels, getting her nails done, a glass of wine and especially all of the sleepovers with her grandkids. Jackie’s faith was number one in her life, followed by the love she had for her entire family. She attended many events of her children and grandchildren through the years.
