Jaclynn Birge

April 15, 1989 - July 31, 2017

Jaclynn "Jackie" Birge, 28, of Okmulgee, gained her wings to fly high on Monday, July 31, 2017.

Jackie was born April 15, 1989, in Austin, Texas. She attended Lockhart I.S.D and Bastrop I.S.D. She moved to Okmulgee August 1, 2009, where she met many friends and touched their hearts as she did wherever she went. Her blue eyes and smile could brighten up any room. She completed her veterinary assistant in Okmulgee and was regrouping to complete her internship when tragedy struck. Her Dad told me, "She may have taken a wrong path in life but God had a bigger and better plan for her. Maybe he called her home to discuss these plans and give her a do over.”

Jackie is survived by her two adorable beautiful girls, Payton Vada, age 5 and Taylor Lynn 1 ½; her mom, Tara Sexton, Okmulgee; her dad, James Smith and wife Sonja, Elroy, Texas; biological father, Ross Birge and wife, Mindy, Branson, Mo.; one brother, Noah Birge of Forsyth, Mo. She had many aunts, uncles, cousins as well as friends which she considered family.

A memorial service will be held September 2, 2017, at 3p.m. at the First Christian Church (corner of 8th and Seminole). Pastor Charlie Green will be officiating.

“Don't cry for me. I'm not gone. My soul is at rest, my heart lives on. Light a candle for me to see and hold on to my memory, but save your tears for I'm still here, by your side through the years.”

Arrangements were handled by Gary Kelley’s Add’Vantage Funeral Service of Tulsa.
