Jacqueline "Jackie" Burroughs Tredennick

HAMPTON - Jacqueline "Jackie" Burroughs Tredennick, 87, passed away at her home on Grandview Island, Saturday, April 14, 2007. She is the widow of Col. John Cook Tredennick and mother of Steven Burroughs Tredennick of Round Rock, Texas; John Cook Tredennick Jr. of Denver, Colo.; and Elizabeth (Liz) Anne Burroughs Tredennick of Denver, Colo. Jackie was a graduate of Newport News High School and studied music at Hampton University. Jackie was raised in a family of 10 in Newport News' East End, where she showed her musical talent at an early age, singing in the church choir at 6 years old. She was given her own radio show on WGH radio at age 11, sang with area bands through high school and went on to perform in New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and other cities. At age 21 she married "Tred", a young Army officer she met while singing at the Chamberlin Hotel. After a variety of military duty stations the couple retired to the Peninsula in 1962. Jackie used her talents to benefit Peninsula organizations, producing shows for the Hampton Lions Club, Hilton Village Junior Woman's Club, and others. In 1997 she started a music recording business, KoKo Productions. In her last years she often reminded people of her favorite philosophy by performing Sophie Tucker's "It's Never Too Late to Have a Little Fun" and she had fun, right to the end. She is survived by her three children; daughters-in-law Diane and Page; grandchildren Steven and his wife, Stefni, Chris, Sarah, and Scott; and great-grandchildren Darian and Jaxon. She is also survived by one brother, Bobby Burroughs, sisters-in-law Ruth Burroughs, Jackie Burroughs and Vi Burroughs, and several nieces and nephews. The family will receive visitors from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, April 20, at R. Hayden Smith Funeral Home, 245 S. Armistead Ave. in Hampton. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to a favorite charity, especially performance arts organizations.

While visiting my parents, I used to hear Jackie vocalizing and singing up a storm, especially tunes from one of my favorite music eras "Big Band." My sisters Janet, Jeanne, Jackie, Judith, and I shall miss Jackie immensely.

My heartfelt sympathies go out to Liz and her family. I have very fond memories of Jackie from the days that Liz and I were in high school together. I recently caught back up with Liz, and got to see her and Jackie again after many, many years. Jackie was just as I remember her - vivacious, gracious and entertaining. I know that her family will miss her greatly.

I can look can and remember Jackie singing on her Florida porch next door. She coached a friend in singing who had been cast as Dorothy at Kecoughtan High School production of the Wizard of Oz. That show was so successful running a week to sold out audience that we had to put on another week of it due to the demand for tickets. I like to think that's partly due to Jackie's help. I'll miss you.

I was Jackie's sister-in-law, she called me Jackie #2 most of the time, unless I did something special, then I could temporarily be Jackie #1. We had a good time with that. I was married to her youngest brother for 53 years, but didn't know her at first, because of them living away from here. When I did get to know her, I was delighted with her personality, talent, and happiness with life. She taught me many things. I will miss her. Love to the family
