Jacqueline Renee French, 47, of Longview, Washington died Jan. 7, 2002, at the Hospice Care Center due to complications from multiple sclerosis. She was born Aug. 15, 1954, in Estherville, Iowa, to Irvin and Virginia (Olson) French and moved to Longview in 1963, coming from Chippewa Falls, Wis. Miss French was a 1972 graduate of R.A. Long High School where she played the clarinet and was active in the swim team, glee club and chorus. She also was active in the Girl Scouts. She attended Lower Columbia College and worked for North Pacific Paper Corp., until 1988, when she was diagnosed with M.S. She had a strong religious faith and loved her Monday night prayer group, her loud music and animals, especially her dog and two cats. She was a San Francisco 49ers fan. Her biggest thrill was speaking to Joe Montana on the telephone.
She was preceded in death by her father Feb. 20, 2001; a special friend, Rita Havird; and her grandparents. Survivors include her mother in Longview; a brother, Gary French of Edmonds, Wash.; a sister, Cheryl Risner of Longview; three nephews; two nieces; three aunts; and many friends. A celebration of her life will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday at the First United Methodist Church with Pastor Robert Henre officiating. Columbia Funeral Service is in charge of arrangements.
