Jacquelyn Miles, 94, of Owensboro, passed away March 15, 2023, at home. She was born January 3, 1929, at Owensboro Daviess County Hospital to the late Jack Beam Miles and Edith Elizabeth (Gordon) Miles. She was preceded in death by her former husband William R. Walling and second husband, Frank Rubel; daughter, Lynn R. Seitz and grandson, Zachary Andis.
She is survived by her four daughters, Alyson M. Walling Los Lunas NM, Camilla G. (John) Perry of Beaver Dam KY, Meredith G. Dolinger, of Owensboro, Susan L.W. Andis of Peyton, CO., five grandchildren, Joshua Seitz of New Mexico, and Ashley (Arturo) Seitz of Owensboro, Chris (Emily) Watkins of Georgia, Kyler Andis of Peyton, CO, Mary Gwynn Dolinger, of Owensboro; great-granddaughter, Abby A. Watkins, along with a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.
Jacquie worked with people all her life, first as a high school teacher, then as a Social Worker with the state of Florida working with neglected and abused children & their families which also included adoptions. Later she went back to school to work in the psychiatric field, first in a psychiatric hospital and then in private residences.
She moved from New Mexico after marrying Frank Rubel and began volunteering her time here. She worked as a volunteer interviewer at the Help Office, joined the Owensboro Lions Club as she had been a Lion in Albuquerque. She made the statement that since the Lions Club helped her so much with the children she worked with that she wanted to be a Lion. At that time women were not allowed to become Lions. She claimed to be standing at the door waiting and joined as soon as the door was opened.
She was a member of the Woman’s Club of Owensboro, the General Evan Shelby Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the Republican Women’s Club. She used her social worker background to help her church, working with people with marriage problems. She was also a Lady Kentucky Colonel.
The Funeral Mass will be 10:00 a.m. Monday, at Blessed Mother Catholic Church where visitation will begin at 9:00 a.m. Care by Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory. Burial will be private. Per Jacquie’s wishes, “My life was too colorful to wear black at my funeral.” Please wear colorful attire.
She was a people person as well as an animal person. All her animals & her children’s animals were rescues.
