Elizabeth Redding

    Elizabeth A. "Jackie" Redding, 84, of Middleton, died Friday, Feb. 8, 1991, at her home of natural causes.  Graveside funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13, at the Middleton Cemetery.  The Rev. Raymond A. Thompson of the Caldwell United Methodist Church will officiate.  Services are under the direction of the Dakan Funeral Chapel, Caldwell.
    Jackie was born Nov. 3, 1906, at Bentonville, Mo., to Lawrence and Olive Beasley Matthews.  She moved with her family to Loveland, Colo., in 1913.  She graduated from Loveland High School in 1924 and married John Wilson March 30, 1927.  They were later divorced.  She married Earl Redding May 23, 1942, at Sidney, Neb.  They lived in Denver, Colo., after World War II until coming to Nampa in 1949.  They moved to Middleton in 1953 where they had since resided.
    Jackie worked for the J.R. Simplot Co. until her retirement in 1971.
    She was a member of the Middleton United Methodist Church and had been a member of the Rebekah Lodge at Middleton for many years. Jackie and Earl also belonged to various Square Dancing Clubs in the Treasure Valley.  She enjoyed dancing very much.  She also loved gardening and taking care of her flowers.  Jackie's grandchildren and great-grandchildren were very special to her and she enjoyed attending their activities. 
    One we loved dearly has gone from us;
    A voice we loved is stilled,
   A place is vacant in our home
   Which never can be filled.
    She is survived by her husband, Earl of Middleton; a son and daughter-in-law, Steve and Diane Redding of Middleton; three daughters and sons-in-law, Shirley and Ted Hill of Seal Beach, Calif., Jackie and Roland Pennington of Ontario, Ore., and Sue and Ron Owen of Seattle, Wash.; two sisters, Cora Walker of Denver, Colo., and Gladys Hennessey of Boise; 11 grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.
    She was preceded in death by a brother, two sisters and a grandchild.
