Jacqueline Carrol Fields

May 19, 1945 — May 1, 2024

Pinehurst, Idaho

Jacqueline Carrol (Etherton) Fields, 78, of Pine Creek, Idaho, passed away peacefully on May 1, 2024, surrounded by family at Pacifica Senior Living in Pinehurst, Idaho.

Jackie was born the first of six children on May 19, 1945, in Kellogg, Idaho, to Jack and Jean Etherton of Pine Creek. She grew up on the family homestead on Pine Creek. She graduated from Kellogg High School in 1963, and attended the College of Idaho, Lewis Clark State College, and University of Idaho, where in 1969 she graduated with a degree in Zoology.

In 1974, Jackie gave birth to her only child, Jeremiah. They later moved to Lewiston, where Jackie earned her teaching credentials. She returned to the Silver Valley and spent the next several years teaching in the Wallace and Kellogg school districts.

Jackie met Rod Fields in 1982, and in September of 1983 they were married. Jackie and Rod spent 31 years together camping, four-wheeling, and exploring nature. After Rod’s death, Jackie kept herself busy volunteering at the Staff House Museum, scanning old pictures for the Pine Creek Hysterical Society, gardening, sewing, spending time with her grandkids, and playing music at the Senior Center and Kellogg nursing home.

Jackie was preceded in death by her parents, Jack and Jean Etherton, as well as her husband Rod Fields. She is survived by her son, Jeremiah Jordan Fields (Trudi) and their children, Annika Jordan, Aydin Jordan, and Tarryn Brunton. She’s also survived by sisters Judy Etherton, Jodi (John) Haire and Jo Hannah Etherton (Sam Hopper), along with brothers Jim (Marcia) Etherton and Jon (Teri) Etherton, and several nieces and nephews.
