Jackie LaRae O’Neil Garcia, 70, passed away peacefully with family present at Canyonlands Care Center in Moab. Family has been an important supportive role in Jackie’s ongoing battle with cancer.

Jackie was born in Price, Utah on July 17, 1947 to Alfred Leroy and Nettie Lovell Tryon O’Neil. Jackie worked many jobs but was assistant manager of Pizza Hut for 20 years.

Jackie loved many things in life including rock tumbling, jewelry making, arrowhead hunting, and listening to music, but most of all she loved her family. She was the “Rock” in our lives, a hard-working woman who will be very much missed.

Jackie is survived by her daughters Sharladyne Lovato and Cidelia (George) Lovato; grandchildren Charlie (Rebecca) Hernadez, Stacey (John) Mullen, David Lemon, Curtis Lovato; great-grandchildren Kaydence Mullen and Orin Mullen, sister Mary Lou (Bud) Voss, brother Jim (David Reece) O’Neil and loving sister-in-law Peggy O’Neil.

Jackie was preceded in death by her parents, husband Larry Garcia, grandson Mario Alfred Lovato, sister Carma Lovell Lemon, brother Lee O’Neil and nephews David and Terri Lemon.

Funeral services will be held Wednesday, April 4 at 11 a.m. at the Moab LDS Chapel on 400 North. A viewing will be held Tuesday, April 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Spanish Valley Mortuary and one hour prior to the service at the church. Burial will follow at Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery.
