Jacqueline Anne Warn Bowers, or as most of us knew her, Jackie, was born to John and Elma (Mickey) Warn on April 8, 1965 in Little Falls, NY. She grew up in St Johnsville, NY attending the

She attended Clinton Community College in Plattsburgh, NY and received her Associates Degree in Health & Human Services in 1988. In the fall of 1982 she met the man who would later become the love of her life, Cyrus Bowers at a party and on February 13, 1983 they began going steady. Jackie and Cyrus became a married couple on June 25, 1988 in St. Johnsville and together they moved to Middlebury, VT where Jackie worked in the shoe department at Ames Dept Stores in Middlebury. After they moved to Ravena, NY Jackie began working in the Grand Union in Ravena in the Deli. She worked later cleaning homes and still later began working at J&B Deli in Ravena.

In 1989 Jackie and Cyrus began studying the Bible with Jehovah's Witnesses and soon came to realize the importance of conforming their lives to serve our wonderful heavenly Father, Jehovah God. Jackie dedicated her life to God by water baptism in July of 1990 in Springfield, MA. As an ordained minister of Jehovah's Witnesses, Jackie began a career of full-time preaching in 1993 and preached 8 years as a pioneer minister, devoting 90 hours a month to her ministry. Jackie continued to be a zealous preacher of righteousness and a faithful sister up until her death on February 11, 2022. Her favorite scripture Isaiah 41:10 which says “Do not be afraid, for I am with you, Do not be anxious, for I am your God, I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness.” gave her great comfort, especially during her illness. She assisted many, many individuals in learning how to come to know Jehovah and to put themselves in line for everlasting life in the future paradise.
