Jackèe Anne Peavler Bishop was born on February 6th, 1989 in Logan, Utah to Lex R. Peavler and Jodie Anne Rice.
Jackèe was always known for her red hair. Although that was one of her more prominent physical features, when she was born she didn’t have any hair. As an infant and toddler, she was most known for her animated facial expressions. People commented as she began to talk that she talked like an adult.
Jackèe always had a bubbly attitude and was very curious about all things. She was happy and alert. She never walked anywhere, she always ran, and into everything. She loved watching her favorite cartoons, over and over again. She loved watching Jungle Book with her grandma and grandpa Peavler. She was such a beautiful child, so full of life and love.
After her parents’ divorce, she moved to Hagerman, Idaho where she lived with her dad and grandma and grandpa Peavler. At age 4, Marlyn Vella (Bjarnason) came into her life and became her step-mother. She moved to Lacey, Washington where she spent all of her school years, except for 6 months. Along with a new mom, she was adopted into the Vella clan. She loved all her new cousins, aunts and uncles, and grandparents. Not only did they become her family, they became friends. She loved going over to grandma’s house and playing with her cousins several times a week. Early on, she developed the love of reading, and her love for reading was a passion she continued throughout her life. In grade school she was involved in many activities such as taking keiki hula lessons, being part of a children’s singing group, as well as taking piano lessons which she loved. Her step mom (who she always referred to as her mom) and her even played a duet at one of her piano recitals. She loved attending church and being involved in Young Women program including going to girls camp. She was able to earn her Young Womanhood Medallion, an accomplishment she took very seriously. She also loved going on adventures with her step-mom and cousins during school breaks and summer. She was sealed to her step-mom and dad in the Seattle temple, something she was determined to make happen. She loved spending time with her sister Khirston during summer visits and occasional holidays. She enjoyed going to Mt. Rainer and watching movies with her dad. She also loved playing soccer and it was a great bonding moment for her family.
Jackèe would later move to Northridge, California to live with a new stepmom, Mary Scott, and new step-siblings Andrew, Jenny, Katie, Johnny, and Patrick. Jackèe loved the beach, Hollywood, and Disneyland during her stay in California.
Upon turning 18, Jackèe moved back to Lacey, Washington and graduated from North Thurston High School.
After graduation Jackèe moved to Idaho to spend time with her grandpa Peavler where she eventually met the love of her life, Curtis Bishop. They were married on September 15th, 2012 in Wendell, Idaho. They would eventually end up in Boise, Idaho where they adopted a dog named Beauty. She was always happy when she talked about Curt. It was quite evident that she was very much in love. Jackèe was able to start attending college again in 2020 via the BYU Pathways program and she loved learning and getting back into school. In July 2021 she went to the Boise Idaho temple with Marlyn, her Vella family, and her mother-in-law Cindy. She wanted nothing more than to be able to have children. Sadly, she was taken from this earth before that could happen. Jackèe will always be known for her big smile, her loving heart, lighting up her room, and bringing laughter wherever she was.
