Tributes for

Dey, Jacqueline

Dey, Jacqueline Lindquist With sadness and heavy hearts we share news that we lost Jacqueline Lindquist Dey on Wednesday, June 22, 2016 in Irvine, California. Jackie died peacefully in her home and is now in the loving arms of Jesus. We miss you and love you so much Mom, Gran, Great Grandma, Sister and Friend.

Jackie gave 100% in everything she did. Born in Madison, Wisconsin, she started playing the piano when she was six years old. She was a straight-A student from first grade all the way through college, where she was Phi Beta Kappa and president of her Tri-Delta sorority at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Upon marrying, she and her husband immediately moved to California, where her first two daughters were born. Shortly thereafter, the U.S. Navy took the family to Hawaii, where they lived for five years, and their third daughter was born. Living in Hawaii was one of the highlights of Jackie's life. She loved being an officer's wife and entrenched her family in the Hawaiian culture.

Jackie was artistic, creative, strong and accomplished in so many ways. Founder of the Jacqueline Dey Company, she mastered her career in executive search in the homebuilding industry and was a highly respected leader in her field. Executive, mentor, musician, artist, Jackie played the guitar, piano and ukulele. She sang beautifully - Hawaiian songs, folk music and hymns. Jackie was a member of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Newport Beach. She loved her women's Community Bible Study (CBS); ski trips and Hawaiian vacations with her children and grandchildren; spending Octobers in Boston with her family; current events and news; working out with her trainer; and keeping abreast and supporting her daughters and grandchildren through all of their activities, joys, sorrows and accomplishments. She had a fun sense of humor and great passion for life. She was one-of-a-kind wonderful. Her gifts and strengths are too many to count, but we count ourselves blessed to have learned and to have received so much of life and love from her.

Jacqueline is survived by her three daughters, Susan Lindquist de la Parra (Arturo), Nancy Gill Olson (Todd) and Stephanie Allen (Don); her four grandchildren, David Gill (Andrae), Miranda Craik (Kenny), Laura Valley and Alison Valley; her three great-grandchildren, Jackson, Madeleine and Averie; and her brother, Russell Julseth of Hong Kong.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a donation to either the Young America's Foundation or the Salvation Army, Orange County.
