Jackie Lynn Abney

Jackie Lynn
Stormo Abney
Jackie Lynn Abney was called home by our Heavenly Father on Friday, the 13th of February, 2004 at around noon. Jackie, a long time resident of Bloomfield, had fought a long hard battle with cancer, and for those who knew her, never backed up in trying to find a cure for it. Born February 17th, 1953 in Torrance, California, to Robert E. and Lila M. Stormo, she was the 4th child of the marriage, and the only girl. Both parents have since passed as well as one brother, Jimmy Ray Stormo, in 1977. Jackie has two other brothers, Robert E. (Butch) Stormo, Jr. of Los Angeles, California; and William B. (Billy) Stormo of Bullhead City, Arizona; and her aunt, Strubie Felton or Ortenville, Minnesota. Jackie was blessed with three children with her husband, Russell Abney of Bloomfield, her daughters, Kari Herrea of Phoenix, Arizona; Rayell Davila of Sasuin, California; and Tanya Lackey of Amarillo, Texas, but the biggest blessing came during her cancer years when her daughters, Kari and Rayell, blessed her with grandchildren. Kari gave her Tyler Joby and Rayell gave her Tiffany Jacklyn. These two blessings kept her going in the hard years and it gave her the need to go on. Jackie had worked for Target, receiving many company honors during her years and was focused on moving ahead with her career when she was stuck with cancer in June of 1999. While working in the California stores, prior to her transfer to the store in Farmington, Jackie was responsible for all back room inventory and stocking at which she excelled, receiving the companies highest honors, and was moved from store to store to train others in the company on motivation and scheduling; this all while maintaining her family and continuing to educate herself for advanced duties within Target. Jackie had been highly involved in the sports programs in Bloomfield during her childrens younger years with softball, coaching several teams, with one going to the Nationals in Eden, Oklahoma in the mid 1980s. With this involvement, both of her daughters achieved high honors in sports, with Kari going on to NCAA duties at the University of Mississippi (Old Miss) and setting a standard for the future of our family to follow. Rayell backed it up with batting honors in the Mid-California area during her high school years. Jackie had a great love of life. She shall be missed greatly be all that knew her, but she is at peace now with our Heavenly Father, as she looks after her family and gives strength to her husband of 32 years, to go on. In life, few of us will ever meet a more loving person, or a better friend. Funeral services will be handled by Brewer, Lee and Larkin Funeral Home, with viewing to be at their chapel on 103 East Ute Street, Farmington, New Mexico, on Monday the 16th of February, 2004, between 2:00 and 7:00 p.m., with church services to be held at the Bloomfield Baptist Church chapel at 10:00 a.m., on her birthday, February 17th, 2004.
