Jackie Fair Boone, 65, of Elizabethton, Tenn., went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, December 7, 2021, at Sycamore Shoals Hospital in Elizabethton. Jackie was born in Elizabethton to the late Samuel Hyder Fair Jr. and Goldie Pearl Bare Fair. In addition to her parents, Jackie was preceded in death by a sister, Janet Fair Morgan; an infant sister, Barbara Jean Fair; and a sister-in-law, Marianne Fair.
Jackie retired as a law enforcement officer with the Carter County Sheriff’s Department. She loved animals, deeply cared for her family, grandchildren and furbabies. She made friends wherever she went and never knew a stranger. Jackie was the biggest “cut-up” you could ever meet and loved to laugh more than anything. She could not always attend church but her strong faith in God got her through many tough days. No matter what happened to her in life she never lost faith in God and Jesus Christ.
Those left to cherish her memory include her daughter, Susan (David) Kilday of Greeneville, Tenn.; her son, Timothy Fair and fiancée, Leanna Booher of Johnson City; her grandchildren, Jamon, Joshua, Bailey, Aala, Foster, Claire and Hope; and two brothers, Ronnie (Becky) Fair of Elizabethton and Randy Fair of Jonesborough. Many cousins, nieces and nephews also survive.
A service to celebrate Jackie’s life will be conducted at 7 p.m. Friday, December 10, in the Chapel of Peace at Tetrick Funeral Home, Elizabethton. The family will receive friends in the funeral home chapel from 5 until 7 p.m. Friday, prior to the service. The graveside service will be conducted at 10 a.m. Saturday, December 11, in the Highland Cemetery. Active pallbearers will be Jamon Kyte, Joshua Kyte, Wiley Morgan, Rick Morgan, Timothy Fair and David Kilday. Those wishing to attend the service are asked to meet at Tetrick Funeral Home, Elizabethton, at 9:30 a.m. Saturday to go in procession to the cemetery. Those who prefer memorials in lieu of flowers may make donations to the Carter County Animal Shelter, 138 Sycamore Shoals Drive, Elizabethton, TN 37643.
