Mary Jacqueline Bond, age 83, of Apache Junction, Arizona, loving wife, mother, grandmother, and sister passed away peacefully on Monday, February 8, 2021. Mary, most known to family and friends as Jackie, was born January 1, 1938 in Pleasant Hill, Tennessee.
Jackie’s love of the Lord was present in everything she did. She was a member of the Gold Canyon Church of Christ. She loved her family and the fellowship of her church family. Her passion was painting western art on canvas and stone. Her specialty was working with stone which was unique in the art world. As a member of the Payson Art League, her slogan was “A Brush with Jackie Bond” and she sold her work to friends and family all over the world. She enjoyed going to art shows and the comradery with other artists. She underpriced her work because she just wanted people to be happy no matter how much time she put in. She often gave them as gifts for special occasions or just because she wanted to help someone lift their spirits.
Jackie is survived by her husband, William T. Bond of 58 years, and her children Pamela Dee Arno, her husband James Francis Arno, Trisha Jill Kimberly, Todd Thomas Bond, his wife Nellene Ruth Bond, and five grandchildren; Justin, Trevor, Chase, Jamie and Jenna. She was the middle child of seven siblings. She’s survived by Malcolm Bumbalough, Kenneth Bumbalough, and Tony Bumbalough. She is preceded in death by her other three siblings; Charles Bumbalough, Charlene Johnson, and Rudy Bumbalough.
Services will be communicated at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the New Mexico Christian Children’s Home in Portales, New Mexico, at https://nmcch.org/where her local church supports.
