Life Story / Obituary
Jacqualine Louise Luckett, born in Chicago, Illinois, was the eldest of two children born to the union of Rudolph, Sr. & Louise Luckett (both preceded her in death). Her brother “Rudy” Rudolph, Jr., also preceded her in death.
Jackie, as she was affectionally called, accepted Christ at an early age. She was a college graduate, receiving her degrees from Malcolm X College and Roosevelt University (Chicago, Illinois). Her career path included nursing and a college registrar. In her early days, she “enjoyed” organizing and walking the runway in fashion shows (which is why she loved to “dress”). In some of those same fashion shows, she included her two daughters (which is why they grew up being particular about their appearance). She loved to write poems for special occasions, and she loved being the life of the party. In her own way, she always cracked jokes, some of which included her playfully talking about people; as she made everyone around her laugh. As time went on, and as the family began to grow in Racine, Wisconsin, before and during her illness, she “enjoyed” spending,time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Jackie “enjoyed” her 76 years of life, and attempted to make sure that everyone around her did the same. Even though she was not able to crack a final joke, some of us witnessed her, hours before her last breath, attempt to give her last chuckle. Jacqualine Louise Luckett will surely be missed.
Those left to cherish her memory are her two daughters: Rev. Teresa M. Jackson and Tina M. Plump; a brother, Dwayne (Judy); a step-sister, Evelyn; five grandchildren (Sherri, Robert, Andrew, Jr., Twyla, and Shaina); nine great-grandchildren; four first cousins; and many life-gained “grandchildren” and friends.
A Funeral Service celebrating Jacqualine's life will be held at the funeral home, 11:00 AM, Friday, February 3, 2023, with Rev. Teresa Jackson officiating. Relatives and friends are welcome to meet with the family for Visitation on Friday, 10:00 AM until time of service at the funeral home.
