Jacklyn Diane Pennington Gray, 66, passed away October 5, 2021. She was born June 30, 1955 in Birmingham, Alabama to the late William Robert Pennington and Betty Jo Smith.
Jacklyn loved spending time with her family and taking care of them. She was known for doing for everyone except herself and would help anyone in need- she didn’t know how to say “No”. Jacklyn couldn’t cook and seemed to burn everything.
