Carico, Jacqueline Harrison 4Jacqueline “Jackie” Ann Harrison Carico of Christiansburg went to be with our Heavenly Father on June 8, 2024.
She was born in Radford on September 6, 1954 to Kirby James Harrison and Gertude Cline Harrison. She is preceded in death by both parents; her husband, Billy Gene Carico; her brother, Delbert Harrison; and sister, Valery “Kay” Tolley.

She is survived by her daughters, Crystal Jones (Billy) of Dublin; and Tracy Mathis (Hank) of Christiansburg; grandchildren, Kristopher Smith, Darian Jones, and Logan Mathis; great grandchildren, Akxel Charles, Luna “Rainy” Gravley; and Laiken Smith; sisters, Donna Harris of Roanoke, Josie Hollins (Mike) of Christiansburg, and her identical twin, Mackie Underwood of Beaver, WVA; a special niece, Melissa Haynes, and many caring nieces and nephews; her step children, Shanon, Pam, Jo, Billy, Albert Carico; a special friend, Phil Conner; her dog, Pepper, a special friend she and Mackie shared, Kim Evans of WV.

She was a mother, a sister, a friend, a prankster, a grandma, g-ma, and a shake-shake. She will be remembered and missed for her sense of humor, her jokes and pranks. She loved to make candy, to cook, to care for senior citizens and help people in need. She was trained in gourmet cooking, and was in dietary management for many years. She once stated her whole purpose in life was to make people smile.

Jackie organized and hosted the Christmas party for St. Albans Hospital for 27 consecutive years. She has a great love for her family and friends and will truly be missed by all.

The family would like to thank multiple organizations for their mother’s care, Dr. James Randall Smith (Tammy), multiple doctors and nurses affiliated with Carilion, Intrepid Hospice, and Warm Hearth at Home.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
