Jacque was born April 29, 1951, to Lloyd and Ellen (Teepe) Billings in Charles City, IA. She grew up and graduated from Burnsville High School in Minnesota. After high school, Jacque stayed near the twin cities where she was raising her 3 daughters.
While living in the twin cities, Jacque attended a friend’s wedding, where she not only met the bride’s brother but also her future husband. On June 15, 1991, she married her true love, Jim Poppe. She and her daughters moved to Lewisville and started a new life with Jim. Jacque adapted to small town living quickly and made many friends over the last 31 years working at McDonald's and couple of convenience stores in the area. Her and Jim also joined a bowling league and enjoyed going to the races in the area. She was very supportive of Jim’s involvement in the Lewisville Fire Dept. and had a passion for helping troubled youth and local law enforcement. Her grandchildren referred to her as “Nana” and her great-grandchildren called her “Gigi”. Jacque spent as much time as she could with them and her other family, always being the loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, and friend.
