Jacquline Lee Bufton passed away Saturday afternoon the 7th of March 2020 at the age of 70. She was born to Jack and Celia (Bain) Spurlock on Friday the 19th of August 1949 in Kaw City, Oklahoma.
Jackie worked at Wentz Camp during her early twenty’s. It was here she met her soulmate Daniel Bufton and on June 22, 1974 they were married at the Camp. Dan and Jackie raised two children; Kenneth and Angelia. Jackie had a heart of gold and a giving nature. She received her bachelor’s degree in Education and spent many years teaching in the public-school system.
Jackie was very creative and spent many hours at her sewing machine. She not only sewed many an item with the Sew What Stitch Group each week, but also stitched quilts with the Pioneer Area Quilters Guild each month. Jackie found her gift of sewing at a young age for at the age of 24 she created her own wedding dress. She will be remembered for her sewing talents for years to come. When Jackie wasn’t sewing, she could be found tending to the bee’s that her and Dan kept or tending to her flower and vegetable gardens.
