Jacqueline Dee (Jackie) Cameron
Jackie Cameron passed away Wednesday, October 27, 2021. Jackie was born to Roderick and Luella (Seip) Tiller March 17, 1937 in Summerfield, Kansas. She attended school locally and graduated from Summerfield High School in 1955.
She attended Kansas State College (now Kansas State University) until 1956, and played the baritone in the KSU marching band, majoring in Music and Home Economics. She then worked for an insurance company in Lincoln, NE until she married James David (J.D.) Cameron, December 29, 1957. Jackie and J.D. moved to San Francisco as newlyweds, where J. D. was stationed in the U.S. Army at Ft. Ord-Presidio. While living in San Francisco, Jackie rode a streetcar each day to work at a local bank. Jackie and J.D., married nearly 60 years, had four children, three boys and one girl. She was an active farm wife with many interests. Jackie had a lifelong love of music throughout her life, not only in band, but playing piano and teaching it to many students over the years, as church organist and sang in a trio that began in high school and lasted for several decades, singing at local events with her two closest friends.
She was a lifetime 4-H member, leader and sponsor of the 4-H program. Jackie served as a volunteer publisher of the Summerfield Sun newspaper, record keeper of the Summerfield Cemetery, active member of the Extension Club, State Line Club and the women of the Conservation District at a local, state and national level. Quilting was another of her passions she did on her own and at the Presbyterian Quilters Guild for many years.
More than anything, Jackie loved her family and extended family in her community and was known as “Mom” to not only her children, but her children’s friends, and nearly everyone she met. Her legendary cookie jar always had a treat for piano students or anyone else who stopped by for a visit.
She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, parents-in-law Glenn and Selma Cameron, son Mark Cameron, son-in-law Hector “Rocko” Arocho, sister-in-law and husband Marie (Cameron) & Henry Kerl, sister-in-law Shirley Tiller and niece Nancy Kerl.
