Obituary

Jackie Esther Able, 83, of Irmo SC, where she has lived since 2017 passed away on October 6, 2022.  She was born on March 21, 1939, in Williston SC, to the late Mr. and Mrs. Jack and Lillie Mae Collins Able. 

Ms. Able grew up in Ridgeland SC and graduated from Ridgeland High School. She later lived in Savannah GA, West Columbia SC, Garden City Beach SC, and eventually ending up in Irmo SC, where she attended Union United Methodist Church. During her time in Savannah GA, she worked for the Georgia Air National Guard Field Training site.  She enjoyed traveling and spent time in the rainforests in Puerto Rico and Alaska and walked on the Mendenhall Glacier in Alaska.  Jackie was also a movie star of sorts.  Her scene in “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” ended up on the cutting room floor, but none the less, she enjoyed her fleeting moment of fame and the opportunity to sit in the Director’s chair and have her picture taken.   Acting wasn’t her only talent; Jackie operated a British-owned import/export business in a Foreign Trade Zone and was an executive legal secretary. She wrote a classified contingency plan for the Air National Guard in the event of activation, which was approved by the State Adjutant General and the Chief of the National Guard Bureau in the Pentagon.  She loved music, walking, dancing, and people. 

Left to cherish her memory are two sisters, Priscilla Lane Lyons, Nicholas Able Withrow; seven nieces and nephews, James H. Lane (Theresa), Beth Lane Harriott (Sam), Collins B. Lane (Tammy), Thad E. Lane, Randy Withrow (Jandi), Stephanie Withrow Mosser (Vance), Michelle Able Ventimiglia (Ricky); eleven great nieces and nephews, Cayce M. Lane, James H. Lane, Jr., Samuel Harriott (Ashley), Nicholas Harriott, Jackson Harriott, Justin Lane (Amy), Courtney Lane, Claire J. Withrow, Josephine E. Mosser, Samantha Grace Ventimiglia, Savannah Ventimiglia; and four great-great nieces and nephews.

A graveside service will be at 1:00pm, on Thursday, October 13, 2022, at Ebenezer Cemetery, Ebenezer Road, Yemassee, SC 29945.

A visitation will be held from 10:00am until 12:00 noon, on Thursday, October 13, 2022, at Vaigneur Funeral Home, 6802 Tillman Road, Ridgeland, SC 29936.
