Jacklyn Burton Poundstone (1937-2018)


Jacklyn Burton Poundstone of Colusa, passed away January 13, 2018 at her home with family and loved ones at her side.

Known to all as Jackie, she was a lifelong Colusa resident, born February 24, 1937 and the daughter of John Kelly Burton and Janice Grenfell Burton.

She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 50 years, Emery Poundstone.

Jackie is survived by her daughter Kelly Small (Patrick Small), sons John and Richard (Joan) and stepson Thomas (Marilyn), her grandchildren (Samuel, Matthew, Jillian, Maxwell, Charles, Margo, William, Heather, Katie, Elizabeth and Michael), sister Royetta Burton Ash and numerous nieces and nephews.

An enthusiastic world traveler with her husband and friends, avid bridge and dominoes player, Jackie had many interests and will be fondly remembered for her abundant sense of humor and love of entertaining. She and Emery enjoyed cheering on the Cal Bears, San Francisco 49ers and Giants and often invited family and friends to join them.

Cancer shortened her years, but Jackie’s warm smile and lively curiosity never faded. She lived with gusto and laughter to the very end.

Her family is immensely grateful for the support, care and treatment that Jackie received over the course of her illness, in particular the care given by Kim Espino of Colusa.
A private family service will be held.

Arrangements are under the direction of McNary-Moore Funeral Service • (530) 458-2111 • FD 410
