Born Jacqulyn Elaine Boldt on July 11, 1952, in Marshall County, Iowa, she was the daughter of Dean and Deloris (Conrad) Boldt. She grew up in Gladbrook, graduating from Gladbrook High School in 1970. Jackie went on to attend cosmetology school and worked several years as a beautician. In the early 80s, she went back to school and earned her Certified Medical Assistant Degree. Shortly after, Jackie started at Marshalltown Family Physicians/Center for Family Medicine as a medical assistant and retired from the same clinic, now McFarland Clinic, in 2020.

After meeting the love of her life, Stanley “Stan” Goos, they were united in marriage on December 16, 1972, at the Salem Church of Lincoln. The couple made their home in Gladbrook, where they raised their children.

Jackie was all sparkle and shine and loved to dress her best. She had an amazing sense of humor, always accepting of jokes thrown her way and willing and able to throw them right back. Her contagious laugh was one of a kind and can still be heard by her loved ones. She loved bird-watching and Hallmark movies, especially Christmas ones. Jackie was an excellent cook and baker, well-known for providing her potato soup at the Gladbrook United Methodist Church dinners, homemade pies for the Corn Carnival food stand and her famous potato salad (a recipe she finally had shared with her family). But her favorite was Christmas sugar cookie day ­ a well-loved family tradition with dozens of sugar cutouts for the kids and grandkids to help decorate. Family truly meant everything to Jackie and she cherished the time she was able to spend with them. She will be deeply missed by all those who loved her.

Left to cherish her memory are her five children: Carol Jean (Shannon) Casey, of Round Rock, TX, Pamela (Sterling) Heise, of Des Moines, Samuel (Shanna) Goos, of Marshalltown, Daniel (Cheryl) Goos, of Ames, and Elizabeth (Jeremy) Brubaker, of Gladbrook; her grandchildren: Heather, Ashley, Kamron, Preston, Maya, Caitlin, Tanner, Cassidy, Lily, Landyn, Grace, Kylie and Ryanne; seven great grandchildren; her brother, Ron (Nancy) Boldt, of Dysart; sister-in-law Jodi Boldt, of Gladbrook; brothers-in-law: Mark (Linda) Goos, of Gladbrook, and Gregg (Terri) Goos, of West Liberty, and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

In eternal life, she is reunited with Stan, her beloved husband of 37 years; two sons in infancy: Jason and Joshua; her parents, Dean and Deloris Boldt and two brothers: Robert Boldt and Michael Boldt.
