Obituary for Jacqueline "Jackie" Barksdale

Jacqueline Barksdale "Jackie" (nee McKenzie), affectionately known as “Lady J,” the third of seven children, born on April 27, 1957 in Elizabeth, New Jersey to the late Willie “Bill” and Claudia McKenzie. Jackie graduated from Linden High School in Linden and Vocational Technical School (Certificate, Allied Health) and attended Union County College in Cranford, New Jersey.

She worked at several jobs but her main focus was being a “Mother” raising three boys. Jackie truly enjoyed doing things that were FAMILY and Friends related – especially things that involved her grandchildren, great-nieces and nephews. One of her favorite things in life, Jackie loved playing BINGO and taking trips to AC (for those who don’t know “Atlantic City”.)

Jackie was baptized at First Baptist Church of Linden at an early age and later moved her membership to Morning Star Community Christian Center of Linden.

On Wednesday, August 21, 2019, Jackie Barksdale, of Linden, New Jersey, was called home to her eternal rest early in the morning at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in Rahway, New Jersey at the age of sixty-two.

She was predeceased by her husband, Stewart Barksdale; two brothers: Michael D. and George W.; younger sister, Sharon; and longtime life partner, James “Junie” Carey.

Jackie leaves to cherish her memory her three sons and grandchildren: Stewart J. (Christopher and Courtnei) Antonio L. (Kimora, Amari, Synai, and Aitana) and Phillip W. Barksdale; sisters: Kathryn and Brenda McKenzie, and Teresa Maeweather of Linden, NJ and Jenine Bellinger of East Windsor, NJ; a devoted cousin/friend, Renne Judge of Rahway; nieces and nephews: Nicole Kaio, Shareef and Josanne Hardin, Erica, Sheabriah, Marquis, Erica, Alexis, Princess and Justin McCloud; and a host of dear relatives and friends.
