Observer Today
Jacqueline Elizabeth

Teigeler, passed away Tues-

day, Nov. 6, 2007, at 10:15

am. Jacqueline was 7 years

old. Jacqueline was born Jan.

20, 2000, in Melbourne

Beach, Fla.

She has been a Savannah,

Ga. resident since she was six

months old. Jacque attended

May Howard Elementary

School, where she was an

honor student enrolled in the

schools gifted program. She

was a Byrd’s Korean Marshal

Arts student for two years,

reaching purple belt status in

the arts of Hapkido and

Taekwondo. She also received

her honorary junior blackbelt.

Jacque also was a piano stu-

dent, taught by Janet Burnett.

Jacqueline loved to laugh, she

loved to see everyone happy.

She never failed in using her

manners. Jacqueline read

many books and enjoyed time

with her parents reading with

her. She had fun playing with

her little dog Savannah. Sa-

vannah tucked her in each and

every night, and stayed by her

side, on her bed, until she left

this earth. She was always in

the kitchen cooking with her

mom or dad, or watching

Scooby-Doo. Jacqueline loved

going to cookouts and in-

teracting with other children

and adults. There was some-

thing so different about

Jacque that was unique and

special. She was a loving soul

and will be terribly missed by

everyone who knew her.

Jacqueline was named after

her great aunt, Jacqueline

Hendriks-Teigeler resident of

Veldhoven in the Netherlands.

Aunt Jacqueline’s loving

demeanor was passed on to her

namesake. We have never

known two more loving and

gentle souls.

She was survived by her

mother and father, Julie

O’Steen Teigeler, Charles

Arend Teigeler of Savannah,

GA; sister, Rebbecca Lynn

O’Steen, and nephew, Kaden

Jacqueline’s twin sister,

Shelby was lost at birth. We

are sure they are together now,

finally being able to run,

laugh and play together in a

place that Jacqueline herself

described as a meadow, with a

pond, large animals and giant

flowers. She described this

place as nighttime with a full

moon and bright twinkling

stars. Jacqueline always called

her sister Rebbecca and her

sister Shelby ‘‘Sis-Star, instead

of sister.

Our beloved bassett hound,

Abigail ‘‘Abbey Dog’’ who

left us last year. Jacqueline,

and little dog Savannah,

missed her greatly.
