Mackey, Jeanette

February 18, 1942 - January 18, 2015

Jeanette C. Mackey was born February 18, 1942 in San Antonio, Texas, and died January 18, 2015 at her home in Richardson, Texas, after a long illness, which she fought with grace and courage in equal measure.

She graduated from Northside High School in San Antonio, TX.  Jeanette won scholarships and worked in the Engineering Library in order to go to college, ultimately being the first in her family to earn a degree, graduating from The University of Texas at Austin in 1967.  After college, she taught in the Alamo Heights School District in San Antonio, TX.

Jeanette loved Jesus and was a pillar of strength for her family.  She was a beloved wife, mother, and friend.  She was preceded in death by her parents Maurice and Minerva Calle, and by her sister, Alice Aycock of San Antonio, TX.

Jeanette is survived by her husband Daniel G. Mackey; children Daniel W. Mackey and wife Angela, James D. Mackey, and David R. Mackey; and grandchildren Emma G., Lorelei E., and Josiah D. Mackey; brother Bill Calle and wife Ellen; and sisters Evelyn Moreau and husband Larry, and Margie Lassiter and husband Archie.

I would like to offer my most sincere condolences to the Mackey Family on the loss of Jeanette. I knew her by Verlene. She and I were in the NHS Band from 56-60. I often pass by the home they lived in during her high school years. I looked through my annual of 1060 today and it brought back nice memories. She was so very sweet. Again, my condolences on the loss of Jeanette.

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
