She started school and completed the first grade in Bronte after which the family moved to Sterling City for several years and then to San Angelo where she graduated from Central High School in 1962. She attended North Texas State University where she met and married Kenneth Henderson of Longview, Texas. They lived in various places before settling down in Houston. Though they were divorced, they remained friends until his death a few years ago. Professionally, she was employed for 30 years in all facets of the real estate industry including sales, mortgage loans and titles. She served as a Vice President of a Fortune 500 company in the 80’s and eventually became part owner of a private company that provided relocation real estate services for corporate clients. She married Dan Miller and they had many adventures together for 20 years. Though they divorced as well, they also maintained their friendship. She moved back to Bronte in 1999 to care for her mother and father in their last years. After their passing, she decided to stay. These years in Bronte have been some of her happiest. She was able to do exactly whatever she wanted with her kitties in her lap and a good movie on the television.
Jacque was a woman of many talents, a gifted artist and musician, an avid reader, a gardener. She was active in her church in Houston and volunteered for countless charities. She advocated for animal rights in many capacities at the local, state and national levels. The best tribute to her life would be to spay and neuter your pets. Her greatest hope was for peace on earth to become a reality and for every living being to be treated with compassion and respect.
The family would like to thank the kind folks of Bronte for embracing our Jacque in your loving arms helping her before and after these last years as her health was failing. Though there are many who befriended her, we appreciate the extraordinary efforts of Tim Mackey and Cynthia Turner. They spent countless hours with her as friends and helpers.
The family will hold a celebration of her life at a later time. We are honoring her wishes to not have a formal funeral service. If you wish to make a tribute, please donate to the First United Methodist Church in Bronte or to Concho Valley PAWS.
