Jacqueline Marjorie (Heskett) Boyles was born May 10, 1925 near Kanarado, Kansas and died March 29, 2013 in Superior, Nebraska at the age of 87. She was the eldest child of Henry and Daisy (Niceschwander) Heskett. When she was about one year old, Jacqueline took her first ride on a horse with her father and from that time on she developed a love and interest in horses that would last throughout her life time. When Jacqueline was a child she moved from western Kansas with her parents and a baby sister Thelma to Jewell County, Kansas. Growing up Jacqueline and her family lived on farms in Holmwood Township and she attended two country schools in that area including Steuben #5. She attended Sunday School at Olive Hill Church. Jacqueline attended one year of high school at Mankato and then attended Burr Oak High School, where she graduated in 1943. On May 3, 1946, Jacqueline and Gerald L. Boyles were married at the Olive Hill Church Parsonage. Their first home was in Burr Oak, Kansas and soon they moved onto a farm northwest of Burr Oak. Two daughters, Gloria Dale and Glenna Jo were born while they resided on this farm. In 1951 the family moved to Stockton, Kansas. While living there Jacqueline and Gerald were active members in the local saddle club and she would serve as club president. Jacqueline would receive many awards and ribbons for her entries in horse shows. A son Gary Claude was born but died in infancy.
