Obituary of Jacqueline Frances Dudley
Dudley, Jacqueline Frances, “Jax”, 48 of St. Petersburg gained her wings on Monday, December 9, 2019 at Largo Medical Center surrounded by family and loved ones.
She was preceded in death by her Father Ron Dudley, grandparents Betty and Ted Dudley, Bruno and Ethel Waszczak and her Aunt Francine Lincoln and Uncle George Dudley.
She is survived by her mother Geri Dudley and Spouse James “Jazz” Sterling, sister Stephanie Dudley, her life partner Marc Lawya, two nieces Brooke and Bailey Bacon, one great nephew, Evander Grassi, her aunts, Kathy Pruettand Connie Starling, her cousins, Eddie, Steven, and Ricky Dudley, Danny and Robert Kaiser, Debbie Kaiser Dublo, Tony Pellegrino and Dawn Keller, her godmother Luanne Woods and her “crazy dog” Norman. She left behind many dear friends, too many to mention individually, but they know who they are and how much they were loved by Jackie and how much they loved her.
Born in Clearwater and raised in St. Petersburg, she was a “true Florida cracker”. She graduated Dixie Hollins High School class of ’89 and went on to pursue many career interests. A self-proclaimed “Food Network Star”, her love for cooking, experimenting with recipes and feeding the multitudes was Jackie’s wheelhouse. Her “sauce and meatballs” and “lobster bisque” were only a sample of her culinary expertise, not to mention she owned every kitchen gadget under the sun!
While Jackie is no longer with us, her love for life, family and friends will go on forever. Her contagious smile, her laugh, her voice will resonate in our memories. A Celebration of Life will take place on Sunday, December 29, 2019 from 1pm-4pm at Bay Pines Condominium Clubhouse 9801 Bay Pines Blvd Seminole, FL 33708.
