It is with great sadness JacLynn Newmarker Lyon passed away on February 8, 2020, with her family by her side.
She was born in Reno, Nevada on December 2, 1948, one of two children of Patricia and Lenn Newmarker.   She was the head cheerleader during her senior year at Reno High School and graduated in 1966.
For over 20 years she worked at Renown Regional Medical Center (Washoe Medical Center) and Saint Mary's Regional Medical Center in Reno, Nevada.
Some of the passions Jacie had were cheer-leading and ballet in her youth, watching ice-skating, fishing, bowling, watching sports, gardening, singing, and her love of animals and family.
Jacie was a loving mother, sister, cherished grandmother, Aunt, and friend.  She touched the lives and hearts of many who knew her.  She is loved and will be greatly missed by family and friends. 

We will miss Jacie's beautiful smile and her great sense of humor. We will never forget how she always loved to say “Hey girlfriend!”.

Jacie is survived by her brother, Mike (Jackie); two daughters, Amber, Alyson (Eddie); two sons, Andrew (Emily), Aaron (Yuka); grandchildren, Mikah, Morgan, Marley, Kai, Sophie, Malaya and Ava.
Jacie is predeceased by her parents Patricia and Lenn Newmarker.
Thank you for being a friend to our mother. 
A Celebration of Life to honor and pay tribute to Jacie will be held in Reno, NV at a later date.

We shared many loves. A love of watching ice skating and dance shows, football, pumpkin cheesecake, and crocheting/knitting. But most of all we share a love of family. Thank you for loving the girls so much and for being a wonderful Grandma. Thank you for welcoming me into the family with open arms. I will miss you and I love you.

I’m very sorry that you are gone. You have provided me with things that changed my life for the better, and in ways I would never have imagined. I will always remember the kindness and acceptance that you showed me. While I can see you in your children and grandchildren, I will still miss you. I’m very sorry that you are gone.

It’s taking me a little while to write this because you always try to think of the perfect words to say however everything I could say about my mom is perfect and I’m going to miss my best friend forever. There’s so many things I could share about her but if I could just say a few things now, I will always cherish and remember how much she loves to sing in the car , and well everywhere, as well as and dance in the kitchen and all around the house. 
I’ve never met somebody with so much life in them. She has so much love to share and I see everything of her around me every minute of every day and I will continue to do so. All of my family has been very supportive in this time and my friends as well and I just want to say thank you and mommy it’s OK if the 49ers lost.
I love you mom and I will write and think about you every day. Talk to you soon with love forever ... your daughter Amby!

I remember us deciding to be best friends for Alyson's wedding, dancing and sitting next to each other for the whole reception cracking jokes. I still look back on that memory fondly. ♥

I love you Mom. The 49ers lost. I am not sure if you got to see the ending or not, but I hope you did. I didn't want them to lose, but at least Andy Reid got that SB win as a HC. Love you Mom.

Jerusalem Cricket AKA Potato Bug

Shared by Alyson Lynch on February 13, 2020
My mom and I used to make many trips to travel to see my sister and brother. There was a time we pulled over to let our pups (Axil & Kiki) out on this dirt road off of the freeway. We saw this large bug which we have never seen before and it wasn't moving so of course we had the brilliant idea to get closer. This was a huge mistake as the alien creature started moving. We grabbed the pups started screaming and took off running as fast we could. I remember I kept researching trying figure out what type of bug it was thinking hey maybe we found a new type of species which of course we didn't. That was one of many adventures we had and a memory I will never forget. 

Movies with Mom

Shared by Andrew Lyon on February 11, 2020
When I was young, one of my passions was watching movies.  The cool ones.  Robocop, anything with Bruce Lee, Power Rangers.  Anything action packed I was all about.  My mom however...  She loved the kissy stuff.  She loved the sad and the romantic.  I couldn't bear it.  We watched Dirty Dancing, Beaches, Always, Pure Country, and Ghost so many times I lost track.  Then during 6th grade graduation, I played the upright bass.  The song to walk to was Wind Beneath My Wings from Beaches.  I saw the look on my Mom's face and she was one of the few parents who started crying.  I think it was at that moment I could see her love of the happy and romantic.  So I continued to watch all those lovey dovey movies.  For my Mom of course...  Now, I don't get to watch those movies with my mom anymore.  But at least when I do watch them I will have all the good memories of being with her and spending time with her.  I will miss her smile, her sense of humor, the way she couldn't remember how to log in to anything without help from me or my brother.  I will miss seeing makeup on her done by my daughter's.  I will miss watching her play with my daughter's.  I will miss talking football with her.  I will miss her...

Playtime by Ava Lyon

My Grandma and I always played together. We liked to make and fly paper airplanes, play catch, throw frisbees, kick the soccer ball and shoot nerf guns. I hope she enjoyed playing with me. She was the best Grandma ever and I'm going to miss her very much.
