GREEN RIVER – Jackie Mylroie, born May 11, 1957, passed April 14, 2019.
Jackie was a very hard worker and she worked with her mother at Lemieux’s Cafe for many years. At 18 she began her long career in road construction as a flagger, then moved up to chasing redheads, then to being an operator of an asphalt roller compacting asphalt, H.E. Lowdermilk and LeGrand Johnson loved her enthusiasm and great work ethic. Every time we drive on I-70 interstate between Thompson and Green River, Utah we can say, “Thanks Jackie!” Later in her life she returned to Green River to help her mother in many ways as she always did. She joined the Christian Church in Green River and was very helpful in the senior citizen association; she always enjoyed helping others. So many people have such great memories of her loud, friendly, happy ways. Always a hello and a “hey there is that you, this is Jackie,” her laugh made you smile. She lived her life on her own terms, never letting anyone tell her what to do. She was certainly the life of any party! You could always find her by the trail of soda pop and sunflower seeds. Jackie will be missed by all who knew her and loved her. “This ain’t my last rodeo; I’m just on a new journey.” Jackie joined her mother Rose and her brother Steve in heaven.
She is survived by her two sons Casey Mylroie and Justin Allred (Kelsey Wilkerson) and granddaughter Rylan Allred; siblings, Karry (Manuel) Aguilera, Clifton, CO, Sue (Steve) Bullard, Nephi, UT, Paula (Leon) Mace, Roby, MO, Phillip (Dawna) Dinkins, Green River, UT, Willie Dinkins, Green River, UT, Lydia Myers (Joe White), Clifton CO, Tony (Christy) Lemieux Green River, UT, Jerry (Debbie) Lemieux, Searcy, AR; many nieces, nephews and cousins.
