Jacqueline “Jackie” Ruth (Tobin) Axling
Born: January 8, 1938  Died: January 7, 2011
Jacqueline “Jackie” Ruth (Tobin) Axling was born January 8, 1938 in Seattle, WA to John and Ruth Tobin. She is survived by her loving husband Dick Axling, brother Dick Tobin (Joanne) and sister Joyce Baldwin.  She will be greatly missed by her two children John Klein (Traci) and Ryan Klein (Denise) and her grandchildren: Katie, Joshua, Aaron and Lori.  The Axling children, Vaughn Axling and Diana Probert share in this great loss, as well as their children: Mica, Emma, Rylie, Haley, Sarah, Peter, David, Bekah, Daniel, Jordan, Kezi, Abby & Joshua.  As well as her loving cousins: Lloyd, Ron and Larry Kinner.  And her many nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews.
Jackie’s early years were spent in Cle Elum.  Then the family moved to Mercer Island and she attended Holy Names Academy and then Seattle University. She had a wonderful childhood that was filled with lasting memories and countless, close friendships. Her sincerity, big heart, and kind soul were hard to ignore.  So, because of that, she was loved by many, and left a legacy that will never be forgotten. As the bible so eloquently states, “well done my good and faithful servant”.
Jackie’s greatest passion was sharing Jesus Christ with those around her and this was reflected in her daily life.  She was a joy to be around and freely gave of her time and energy with all of her family, friends, and church community.  She was always involved with her bible study group, and praying for others.  Each year she and Richard would go down to spend time with friends in Arizona for a few months of sunshine.  She loved her bible study group there as well.

    So sorry to read of Jackie’s death! I worked with her at Wash. Mutual Savings Bank. We became good friends for a very long time. We lost touch the last several years but she was often in my thoughts.
    I’ll never forget a fun weekend spent with Jackie and Richard in Spokane. On the way to their condo, husband, Milo lost a front tooth to a green apple. Jackie, in all her wisdom, tried diligently to put the tooth back in place with a wad of chewing gum! The tooth has been long forgotten but not Jackie!

  • Dear Family, God bless each and all of you. We were so sorry to hear of the death of our dear alum of the class of 1955, I remember her with genuine love as she smiled with delight and friendliness to everyone “Under the Dome”. I am untied in prayer and caring support with you at her service because I am unable to attend because we’ SNJM Sisters have an all city meeting that afternoon. May God’s Infinite and merciful love sustain and console you all in the days ahead. God Bless each and all of you.
    Lovingly in Jesus & Mary,

    Most of our HNA class saw Jackie at our class reunion last June and enjoyed talking to her. She told us she had been in treatment for her cancer but she looked good. I was so sorry to hear of her passing. She was such a fun girl to be around, always cheerful and fun loving. We all will miss her a lot. God’s grace and Blessings to the family…Sharon McConville

    Jackie was a very special lady! We shared beautiful grandchildren and I know how much she loved and cherished them. Thanks to her we have a loving and caring son-in-law, who is a wonderful father, and good husband to our daughter.
    We’ll miss her. Her smile, her wit, her caring, her faith…
    Love, Pam and Les

    Dear family.
    So sorry to hear of the death of Jackie – We were classmates at HNA in High School. Jackie was full of energy and in sports. Know that she will be missed but always remembered.
