In Remembrance of Jackie Harrison
Date of Death: 04-17-2022
Funeral Service : 04-17-2022
Jacqueline (Jackie) R. Harrison, 56, passed from this life into God’s presence on Easter Sunday morning, April 17, 2022, following a brief illness.
Jackie was born on July 26, 1965, to Dee and Roger Harrison in North Kansas City, and was raised in the country near Gower, Missouri, graduating from East Buchanan High School in 1983.
Jackie had an adventurous spirit that carried her to many places and into many different and interesting roles during her lifetime. From Galveston, to Memphis, to Kansas City, to Big Sky/Bozeman, and back to the KC northland area, Jackie loved life and loved people. Many of her roles involved hospitality and travel, and she visited many fascinating places, making friends and fans along the way.
Her loving, giving spirit endeared her to her family and friends, and her selflessness was a living example of God’s love for each of us. God showed his love to Jackie in a truly remarkable way when she gave birth at age 49 to her beautiful twin daughters, the true loves of her life. Jackie was an amazing mother, a devoted and caring daughter and granddaughter, a fiercely loving sister, a truly special aunt, and a friend to many.
She is survived by her daughters, Vivi and Zuri Harrison, her mother, Dee Harrison York, her sister and brother-in-law, Kim and Todd Offenbacker and their sons Joshua and Justin, and numerous cousins and friends.
She was preceded in death by her father, John Roger Harrison, her stepfather, Gerald York, her beloved grandparents, Spencer and Wilda Torkelson, and her precious canine companion of many years, Gracie Mae.

For those who did not get the chance to meet her in this life, be sure your trip to heaven is booked, just as Jackie’s was. You’re going to love meeting her when you get there.
Memorial services will be determined at a later date. In the meantime, if you have a message or a memory of Jackie you’d like to share, please post it to the Guestbook on the Hixson-Klein Funeral Home website so her entire family and friends can receive that blessing.
