Harriet “Jackie” Zillman

Harriet “Jackie” Zillman passed away November 13, 2022.

She was born to Jasper “Jack” and Mary Myrtice (Dunlavey) Patching August 10, 1933, in Rainier, Oregon.

She married Walter “Walt” Zillman in 1949 and lived in Clatskanie, Oregon where “Pinky” (Walt’s nickname then) was born and raised. She was a housewife and worked in the woods with her husband helping in the logging industry. In December of 1965, they bought San-Bay-O Grocery, Food Lockers, and Custom Meat Cutting in Newport, Oregon. After selling the store, they lived on North Beaver Road in Seal Rock until Walt passed in 1985.

Jackie went to school in her 40s getting her GED and became a CNA working in Nursing Homes and eventually worked as a live-in Care Provider until she retired at 74 years old.

Jackie moved to Forks about 27 years ago where other family members had moved to. Her plan was to stay 2 years. Her plans changed as we can see.

She was Christian active in a few local Churches and even went to school to become a Pastor while attending a church in Beaver when she first moved to the area. She only worked for a church a few years and moved on helping others. Jackie was an Intercessor praying every night for her loved ones and everything else laid on her heart.

She loved watching TBN, the Mariners, the Seattle Seahawks, doing word searches and reading, especially her Bible.

She had a “Heart of Gold” opening her heart and home to many. She was extremely kind, giving and would help anyone that she could. Her hospitality was appreciated by all.

Jackie and Walt had four children: Yvonne Vanlandingham (passed in 2015), a son, MicheleJoy Michaels and Teresa Zillman.

She had a total of 7 siblings which includes 4 sisters, two adopted brothers and half-brother with all passing except one sister.

Jackie has a huge family with many Grandchildren, Great Grandchildren and Great, Great Grandchildren.

There will be a private graveside service with a Celebration of Life later to be arranged.

You can donate to the Cancer Society in her name designated to be used to helping those in need while battling cancer and suffering from the treatment effects afterward.
