Jacque was known as the "Kool Aid Mom" in Liberal, Kansas and never blinked when Diana or Pam came in at 9:30 p.m. saying "I forgot... we need 80 cupcakes for tomorrow!!!"

Jacque also welcomed many of the girls "strays" ranging from baby mice, kittens, puppies, squirrels to later years of "stray" kids from school. Many nights dinner guests were welcomed as long as they did the dishes. Bob and Jacque loved to camp and fish. Some of their best times were spent fishing and playing cards with family and friends. Jacque played golf with Bob until losing her sight in 2001. She loved crafts, painting, gardens, and spending time e-mailing on the computer.
