Jacqueline Elnora Coon, 86, of Rockford, Michigan, formerly of Clinton, passed away at Boulder Creek Assisted Living on Friday, April 9, 2021. A graveside service will take place at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 15, at Clinton Lawn Cemetery. Lemke Funeral Homes assisted the family with arrangements.

Jacqueline was born November 24, 1934 in Ottumwa, Iowa, the daughter of Clarence and Alice (Edgington) Matheney.

While working in the office for Interstate Power in Clinton, Jacqueline applied for a job opening for a Meter Reader so that she could make more money to provide for her children. Challenged that she would not last 1 week at the job, Jacqueline became the first female Utility Meter Reader there, remaining at that job for nearly 20 years; walking 21 miles per day, carrying dog treats in her pockets for the dogs on her routes. Before that she held a position as Assistant to Attorney Elmer Bekman and after her retirement became a Curves personal trainer.

As a young mother she delighted her children with performing cartwheels in the backyard. She had a passion for health, nutrition and a great love for all animals - her dogs and African Grey parrots held a special place in her heart. Jacqueline had a vast thirst for knowledge that went beyond those passions. Her kindness and love was always present - she was the sole caretaker of her second husband for several years until he passed away from cancer.

Above all, she loved her family very much and will be greatly missed.

Jacqueline is survived by her children: Toni Glasgow of Gillette, Wyoming, Mark (Kathy) Satterfield of Rockford, Michigan, Deeanna Whitmore of Albany, Illinois; 7 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren; one brother - Dan (Dee) Matheney; one sister - Carolyn (Robert) Hauber; and her partner of 25 years - John Kurt.

She was preceded in death by her parents; sister - Joleen; and brother- Amel.

Memorials made can be directed to the family.

Jacqueline was an older sister of two of my closest childhood friends, Dan Matheney and Carolyn Hauber. Jac was a beautiful woman with a wonderful sense of humor, and great fun to be around. My wife Brinda and I had the pleasure of eating lunch with Jac and Carolyn during their travels through Iowa a few years ago. Rest in Peace, Jac - the memory of you will buoy the hearts of your family and friends.

Dear Mark, Toni and Dee. I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was a honest , hard working and strong woman. My memories of Taco's and the playing of all types of games with the family will not be forgotten. In the spring of 1979 your Mom, rather than judge me, gave me some wonderful advice on life and the choices one makes. I should have listened to her. May she rest in peace.
Sending hugs, prayers and love your way during this very sad time. With deepest sympathy, Rita.
