Charline Jacoby, age 84, left this life February 23,2019 at her home in Waxahachie, Texas. She was born May 24, 1934 in Lexington, Ky

Ms. Jacoby volunteered all her life but her favorite was the year she headed up the Waxahachie Gingerbread Trail Celebration. Her favorite pastime was playing bridge and camping with her best friends Ann and Vernon Cates and Eloise and Jack Wright.

Charline was preceded in death by her parents Wills and Ruth Jacoby and brother Harlan Jacoby. She is survived by sisters Georgianna Jacoby of Waxahachie and Betty Skinner of Blacksburg, Virginia, daughter Gwen Sharb and husband Jerry of Midlothian, Texas, son Rodney Gregory of Lancaster, Texas  Joseph Gregory and wife Robin of Venus, Texas. Granddaughter Kristen McClure and husband Jesse of Midlothian, Texas, Emily  Baker and husband Josh of Waxahachie, Texas and Joseph “Trey” Gregory of Red Oak , Texas.
