INDIO, CA: We lost a true friend of The Chamber last week, former Indio mayor Jacquie Bethel passed away at the age of 84. Jacquie spent a lifetime of service to her community, much of which was dedicated to the chamber and supporting local business.
Jacquie was a long time member of The Chamber Ambassador program and a familiar face at local ribbon cuttings. “Jacquie was a great Ambassador and an encouragement to all of us” said Debbie Wales, Chair of the Ambassador Program for the Greater Coachella Valley Chamber. “Even though it required getting assistance to and from the chamber events in her later years, she was still there supporting her community for as long as she could.”
A memorial service for Jacquie will be held at 1 p.m. on Feb. 10 at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Indio.
