Jackie was born in Commerce, Georgia on Feb. 1, 1943, grew up in Toccoa, Georgia and graduated from Stephens County High School. She also attended Truett McConnell College.

Jackie was preceded in death by her parents, Benjamin Harold Davidson and Imogene Harper Davidson Losier, as well as her step-father Rev. Dr. Andrew Losier, sister-in-law Deanna Moody McCall and brother-in-law Carl McCall.

Jackie is survived by her husband of 60 years, Raymond Leon Moody, Jr., son Leon (Lisa) Moody of LaGrange and Mark (Suellen) Moody of Milton, Georgia. 

Jackie was a devoted grandmother and great-grandmother to Ashlee (Hank) Davis and their daughter Clarke of Columbia, SC, Drew Moody, Logan (Abbey) Moody and their daughter Vera, and Payton Moody of LaGrange and Jake Moody, Kirsten Moody, and Garrett Moody of Milton, Georgia.

She is also survived by her brother Benny Davidson of Toccoa, Georgia, niece Heather (Clay) Phipps of Villa Rica, Georgia, nephew Ben (Buffy) Davidson of Decatur, Georgia, brother and sister-in-law Dr. Mike and Lisa Moody of Conyers, Georgia, and multiple nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.

Jackie’s love for Jesus was evident in every aspect of her life, and she radiated that love to her family, friends, and community. 

Jackie had an exceptional ability to find joy in every situation and maintained a positive outlook on life that was truly inspiring.

Her infectious laughter and warm smile touched the hearts of all who knew her. She was a treasure, deeply loved by her family and friends, and her absence leaves a void that cannot be filled.

At one time, Jackie was co-owner of Ockfuskee Plastics Supply with her longtime friend Mary Pauley. 

She sang in the choir at First Baptist Church on the Square and was a member of Faithful Hearts Ladies Ensemble Group for over 30 years.  

Jackie was part of Explorer’s Bible Study, a community ladies’ Bible study group serving as pianist and a leader for many years. Also, Jackie served on the Board of the local Salvation Army for several years.

The family would like to thank Emory Winship Cancer Institute, Wellstar West Georgia Hospice and Acti-Kare caregivers as well as countless friends for their love and support this year and especially the last month.
