Whitesburg KY

Jacqueline Ihrig dies at 89



Jacqueline Annette Ihrig, 89, died September 7.

Born in Hazard to the late Charles and Marjorie Ihrig, she grew up in Whitesburg.

She was a true believer in equality and justice and studied to become the very first licensed female private investigator in the state of Florida.

Building a pathway for female equality, she received several awards for being a pioneer in the field.

Ms. Ihrig’s deep-down love for music and enterprising spirit became the driving force for establishing her own music and booking studios, Artists & Musicians Depot, in both Florida and Tennessee.

She wore many hats and prided herself on her many accomplishments, excelling as an A-rated private investigator, music entrepreneur and award-winning insurance broker.

Ms. Ihrig was working on a book of her fascinating life story called “The Chameleon” before she was called away.

Surviving are a sister, Donna Morris of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.; a brother, Glenn Ihrig of Washington, D.C.; and a stepbrother, William Ihrig of Whitesburg.

Ms. Ihrig will be sorely missed by all who knew her and enjoyed the goodness and kindness of her heart. She was a unique and beautiful lady who loved life. Her infectious smile and kind, compassionate spirit will be fondly remembered and deeply missed.
