Jacqueline Porter

December 13, 2019

Jacqueline Porter 89, died Friday December 13, 2019 at Asbury Park in Newton, Kansas.  She was born April 14, 1930 in Lawton, Oklahoma to Jack and Faye (Lewis) Phipps.


On December 18, 1949 she married Carl “Eldon” Porter in Newton and he preceded her in death on January 6, 2008.


Jacqueline attended First Baptist Church in Newton and later attended Salem United Methodist Church after her move to Asbury Park.


She had a love of reading and also enjoyed spending time doing jigsaw and crossword puzzles.  Jacqueline enjoyed the lost art of letter writing and looked forward to a gift of stationary or stamps.  She did not embrace the modern cell phone or computer to communicate with her family and they could always expect a hand written letter to share what was going on in her life.


She is survived by her sons: Michael and his wife Kris Porter of Katy, Texas and Paul and Myong Porter of Tujunga, CA. She is also survived by 8 grandchildren and several great grandchildren. 


Jacqueline is preceded in death by her parents, husband, son Curtis Porter and daughter Karla Anne Porter.


Funeral service will be 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, December 18, 2019 at Petersen Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Donna Voteau presiding.  Visitation will be 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday at Petersen Funeral Home Chapel with the family receiving friends from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Burial will be in Greenwood Cemetery Newton.


Memorials are suggested to Newton Public Library Building Fund in care of Petersen Funeral Home.
