Jacqueline Briles Memorial Information

On March 30th, 2016 Jacqueline Briles left the earth peacefully at Little Company of Mary Hospital in Torrance, California. Jackie was 95 years young. Jackie, wife of the late Paul R. Briles, is survived by her three sons, Richard, Robert and Gregory Briles. Jackie was born in Los Angeles on December 19, 1920, attended high school in Los Angeles, and after marrying Paul, lived in Inglewood, California where they raised their three sons. Jackie enjoyed boating, fishing, cooking, parties, and playing cards with her life long friends. In the early 1990's, Jackie and Paul moved into their dream home that they built on Torrance Beach with magnificent sunset views. It was there on the beach where they spent the rest of their lives.

Jackie Briles will forever be remembered by her family and friends. A true patriot and American citizen, Jackie will also be remembered by the entire Southbay community for her yearly fabulous 4th of July fireworks show which took place in front of her Torrance Beach residence for all to see. The 45 minute show, which was held every year since 1999 with fireworks launched from a floating barge, will continue in her honor this Independence Day 2016. Jackie, never a controversial person, did reach celebrity status when the city attempted to shut down her show. Well, Jackie fought City Hall and won, a testament to her strong will and good intentions, her sharing nature and her desire that everyone should enjoy a good party.
