Roberta Jacqueline McDonough

April 12, 1924 ~ May 13, 2019

Mom, Roberta Jackie McDonough, was born in Denver, Colorado on April 12, 1924. She passed away on May 13, from natural causes.

She attended school at Lakeside-Vineland, Colorado, and was a member of the high school orchestra, playing the slide Trombone. Jackie worked at the Pueblo Army Depot in data entry (thus began the journey of Jackie) organizing files and making things run smoothly.

Jackie married Kenneth Nesslage after high school, they had three children, Ken (Judy), Grand Junction, CO, Carol Ann (preceded in death 1972), and Ray (Margo), Layton UT. Jackie and Kenneth later divorced.

Jackie moved to Utah, and worked for General Motors in Salt Lake City. Years later Jackie and her family transferred to Tooele Army Depot, where Jackie worked in various departments for many years. She had vast knowledge in anything she pursued.

After the kids were raised, Jackie met the wonderful, Charlie McDonough; they became instant friends with many fun things in common. They were married for 17 years, golfed the United States, traveled extensively, and loved every minute of their life together. Charlie passed away too soon, March 10, 2001.

Jackie was the volunteer Coordinator at Hill Aerospace Museum for 25 years. She organized the volunteers, directed tour groups, and knew everyone of the volunteers personally. Jackie volunteered later in life, writing all the birthday cards and thank you notes for Heritage Foundation. Jackie received a letter of accommodation signed by President George W. Bush for all of her contributions.

Jackie is survived by her children, nine grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren and sister, Grace (Don) Gordon, Denver, CO. She was preceded in death by her husband, daughter, parents, and sister, Ann Hayes
