Jacqueline, “Jackie”, as everyone knew her, was born in McCune, Kansas on July 19, 1934 to Jessie Marie (Shaffer) and Willard Abraham Darland. She grew up in McCune and graduated
from McCune High School in May of 1953. She married Charles Nutt, they later divorced. On October 12, 1974, she married the love of her life Lawrence “Ed” Bolte. He preceded her in
death on June 13, 2008.

Jackie spent her life being the best wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother to herfamily. Everyone who met her would tell you what a very sweet lady she was. She loved to be
silly and tease with her family.
During her life she worked at Broderick’s Clothing Manufacturer, Hallmark Cards, and the State Hospital and Training Center in Parsons in the late 50’s and 60’s.
She was later employed at Girard High School cafeteria as the best baker ever. She made all the breads, cakes, and baked goods by hand at that time.
She retired in 1992 after 20 years at the school district.

Her hobbies included quilting, embroidery, sewing, gardening, and cooking for her family. To thisday, her family’s favorite was her Butterhorn Rolls and her Pecan Tassies. We never missed a
holiday dinner without them. She has made many keepsakes over the years to be forever cherished by her family.
