Jacquelynne (Jackie) Stanton, affectionately known as "The General", a name given to her by her dear late father, dedicated director of Education Department for the Narragansett Indian Tribe, passed away on January 30, 2024 with her loving family by her side. Jackie was born March 28, 1965 to her late parents Charles Rodman Stanton Sr. and Elizabeth Rose (Champlin) Stanton. Jackie was a woman of strength and purpose. She was a doer and maybe even described as bossy at times, but she was known for getting the job done and done well. Jackie was a royal member of the Narragansett Indian Tribe and a resident of Hopkinton, Rhode Island.

Jackie's devotion extended beyond her professional life into her role as a dedicated mother to • her beloved son, Lonny Woreboy Brown Jr., fondly known as "the boy." As Lonny Jr. grew Jackie's heart and life's purpose centered on ensuring that each of his dreams came to fruition.

Together, they shared diverse musical interests, traveled to concerts, and followed their sports teams. If Lonny had an interest, Mama Bear Jackie was going to make sure that he was able to experience it to the fullest!

Jackie's mothering of Lonny Jr. was everything a mother should embody. She was selfless and always put her beautiful boy first. Anyone who knew Jackie knew that her life's work was to love and raise her son. Lonny Jr recently gave Jackie the greatest gift, her beautiful granddaughter Brielly Elizabeth. She arrived to this world wearing her grandmother's spirit like a robe, bringing hope brighter than sunrise. The circle of love that Jackie created continues to expand with the arrival of Brielly Elizabeth, symbolizing the enduring legacy of Jackie's love and commitment to family.

Jackie enjoyed gainful employment with the Narragansett Indian Tribe for many years, and she relished the global connections made through numerous cultural exchanges. Jackie supported many tribal youth navigate the local high schools portfolio process and has provided the opportunity for countless tribal youth to attend college. Jackie was a force driven by compassion, and her work within the tribal community was a testament to her commitment to education and cultural exchange.

Jackie is survived by her selfless partner of the last 34 years, dedicated and devoted co-parent to their beloved son, Lonny Brown Sr. She leaves behind not only cherished memories and a legacy of love but also her loving son's new family: a magnificent granddaughter, Brielly Elizabeth Brown who embodies the promise of new beginnings and Brielly's beautiful mother, Skylar Goodall. In their hearts, the warmth of her affection will forever echo, a testament to the enduring bonds she forged within her expanding family circle. Jackie will also be missed by her fur babies; Cujo & Levi.

Jackie also leaves behind a cherished family: sisters; Fawn A. Stanton of Port Richie, MD; Carla L. Monroe and brother-in-law "Mr. Movie Monday" Duane Monroe of Charlestown, RI; Lisa F. Stanton of Washington, DC; Theresa Ruelas of Tucson, AZ and a beloved brother, Charles R. Stanton Jr. of New Hampshire. Jackie also leaves behind a very special cousin Anthony Dean Stanton of Westerly, RI and nieces and nephews who were a source of joy and love in her life.

Jackie was predeceased by her beloved parents Charles Rodman Stanton Sr. and Elizabeth Rose (Champlin) Stanton and siblings: Chuck Stanton of Tucson, AZ; Pasco C. Stanton of Westerly, RI; and Michele M. Stanton of Washington DC. She will be deeply missed by her entire family.

Jackie's impact reached far beyond her family. She leaves behind a legacy of selfless dedication to her family, friends, and tribal community that she served with passion and dedication. Her leadership and forceful advocacy with the Narragansett Indian Tribe will be remembered for generations to come.
