Jacqueline Feusier-Walck: April 2, 1952-Feb. 9, 2018



Jacqueline Feusier-Walck, age 65, of Coupeville passed away unexpectedly in her sleep at home on Feb. 9, 2018. Jackie’s smile will be missed. Her love of everyone was unconditional. Her job wasn’t done, but she can rest assured that others will carry on.

“Service with enthusiasm” was her watchword. She was on the Board of Trustees for the Coupeville Boys and Girls Club and was recently working on the building fund. Jackie loved being on the Board of Directors of the Island County Historical Museum for many years. She was very proud of her membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution. Jackie was also on the Board of Directors for the Penn Cove Water Festival. It was her honor to design the posters for the event for over six years. In to these active roles, she was a proud Coupeville Lion. Jackie worked rigorously with great joy organizing charity auctions for organizations which she was a part of.

Jackie was born in Denver, Colo. She grew up St. Petersburg, Fla. Her childhood adventures could fill a book. In 1973, Jackie joined the Navy and began a 20-year career that took her around the world. She enjoyed tours of duty in Puerto Rico, Japan and Italy. She retired from the Navy in 1993 with the rank of chief petty officer (YNC). She then attended college on the GI Bill. She met her husband Joe Walck in graphic design school. They were married in 1995 on her mother’s farm in Greenbank. They enjoyed kayaking the Pacific Northwest throughout the marriage.

After college Jackie worked 10 years as the printer for Whidbey General Hospital. She and Joe then retired and moved to Coupeville, where she continued to serve by volunteering.

Jackie is survived by her husband Joseph C. Walck, her sister Andra Water, brother Jacob W. Nease and her nieces Antonella Novi and Laura Dawn Novi.

A memorial service and gathering of friends celebrating her life will be held 2-4 p.m. on Sunday, April 8, at the Coupeville Recreational Hall. Friends are encouraged to share memories.
