February 18, 1939 - April 28, 2021
Jacqueline Finch Fresh, 82, of Louisville, died Wednesday, April 28, 2021 at Norton Brownsboro Hospital. She was born to the late Meryl B. and Hildred Tooley Finch on February 18, 1939, in Evansville, Indiana. Her family owned The Finch Funeral Home in Tell City, Indiana for many years. Tell City was near and dear to Jackie’s heart, and a source of such fond memories. She wrote a heartwarming memoir full of wonderful stories of living above the town funeral home in the 1940s and 50s. Mayberry at its best! After graduating from Tell City High School in 1957, she attended Hanover College, and graduated from Indiana State University prior to acquiring a masters degree in Special Education and Speech Pathology at Indiana University. Special education and speech pathology were truly her passion not only her profession. Her many interests included being an avid reader, bridge player, cook, IU basketball fan and a regular presence at the Norton Commons YMCA for yoga and swimming. She also was a member of the Jeffersonville Study Club (Indiana) and St. Luke’s Episcopal Church (Anchorage, Kentucky). She is predeceased by two sisters Judith Finch and Susan Finch Smith. She is survived by her husband of 59 years, Douglas, daughter Susan Hunt (Dwayne), son Jason Fresh (Amy) of Mobile, AL, grandchildren Hillary, Hank and Sam Hunt, Brooke and Kristen Rachel. Jackie was lovingly known as “Non” to her grandchildren, as well as many of their friends. She had a warmth and generosity of spirit that touched everyone who knew her. Memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday May 5, 2021, at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 1206 Maple Lane, Anchorage, KY. Friends may visit with the family from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Tuesday May 4, 2021, at Pearson’s, 149 Breckenridge Lane. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Waycross Camp and Conference Center, 7363 Bear Creek Rd, Morgantown, IN 46160 or the WHAS Crusade for Children, 520 W Chestnut St, Louisville, KY 40202.
