Obituary for Jacqueline Meadows Dusenbury

Jacqueline Florance Meadows Dusenbury, a native of Greensboro passed away peacefully on May 15 2019, at her daughter's home after a 2 year illness.

Surviving family members include her daughter Susan, her siblings Ann Huggins, Davetta Florance Bristow, David Florance III and Connye Madill, nieces and nephews, Edwin, Anita, Samantha, Emmanuel, Jamie, Nattale, Steffani, Derek and Darryl and several great nieces and nephews.

The daughter of David and Rosetta Florance and the eldest of their five children, Jacqueline earned her degree in Social Science and History from Bennett College and a Master’s in Educational Administration. A proud Bennett Belle, Jacqueline rarely missed class reunions and alumnae weekends. She cherished the friendships that began while a student at Bennett College.

She was an outstanding educator, recognized for her enthusiasm and creative teaching style. Jacqueline taught in Greensboro, N.C. School of Science and Math in Durham, Governor’s School, Bennett College, and also in Washington state. She enjoyed additional educational opportunities throughout her career including Harvard University, UNC Chapel Hill and Vanderbilt University.

Jacqueline grew up in a musically talented family and was an accomplished organist and lover of Opera. Her favorite Opera was Eugene Onegin and she was quite pleased during a visit to her daughter’s, that her son-in-law’s first and only Opera experience (to date) was Eugene Onegin.

Jacqueline lovingly referred to her only child as “her contribution to society”. She was a wonderful mother to her daughter Susan and they enjoyed traveling together, dining out, going to the Opera, watching Turner Classic Movies and engaging in much retail therapy (especially Nordstrom). She was an amazing lady who possessed intellect, grace, wisdom, beauty and courage. She was perceptive, direct and very honest even if it wasn’t what you wanted to hear. She was also hilarious and in her final days still managed to make us laugh.

When her days were difficult, she found comfort in scriptures such as Isaiah 41:10 and John 5:28. Jacqueline appreciated all of the support from family and friends, especially during her illness. She also treasured those who helped her daughter care for her. She received many prayers, visits, cards, flowers and gifts. She was unable, due to her illness, to respond personally to all of these expressions of love, but deeply appreciated them all.
