Jacqueline E. Shuton

January 7, 1933 — January 12, 2022

Jacqueline Ellen Shuton (Carlson)
Jacqueline Ellen Shuton (Carlson) passed away quietly on Wednesday, January 12, 2022, at her home in Frankfort, IL, after a brave battle with leukemia. She was born in Chicago on January 7, 1933, the child of Edward and Helen (Banas) Carlson. She met her husband and best friend of 67 years, Donald Shuton, at Thornton Fractional High School in Calumet City, IL, where they both graduated in 1953. They married on Valentine’s Day, 1953, and together they brought four children into the world.
Jackie taught piano lessons and worked as a sales rep for Core-Mark. She was also a fun-loving Girl Scout leader, who became a role model for many young women. She was very active in Job’s Daughters, both as a teenager and adult. She served as president of the Calumet City Lady Lions, and the Mr. & Mrs. Club at Holy Ghost Church in South Holland, IL.
Don and Jackie built their home in South Holland in 1967. They enjoyed vacationing at their second home on Mercer Lake in Minocqua, Wisconsin, where Jackie loved entertaining family and friends. In 1998, Don and Jackie retired and began dividing their time between Minocqua and Sun City, AZ, where Jackie served as president of the PalmBrook Lady’s Golf League, president and tap instructor for the Tip Top Tap Dancers, and volunteer at the Arizona Broadway Theater. She was also a member of the Philanthropic Educational Organization (PEO) in Sun City. Jackie and her husband travelled extensively throughout the U.S., Caribbean, and Europe.
Jackie is survived by her sister, June (John) Cole; daughters, Dawn (Charles) Armstrong, Diane Leo, Dana (Paul) Norden; seven grandchildren; and four great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents; her sister Joy Carlson; and her dear son David Edward. A memorial visitation will be held at Kurtz Memorial Chapel, 65 Old Frankfort Way, Frankfort IL 60423 on Sunday, January 23, 2022 from 1:00 PM until 3:00 PM, with a memorial service in the funeral home chapel at 3:00 PM.
