  1. Nancy, I am so very sorry. Thinking of you and keeping all of you in my prayers.

  2. Sian Boggess says:

    Nancy and Jack, Larry and I were saddened to hear about the loss of Jackie. She was always so kind. Thinking of you, Sian Boggess

  3. We were so sad to hear of Jackie’s passing. We loved her so much. She was always so kind to us. I remember being gone somewhere when Keilah was a crying newborn and Chris brought her next door to Jackie to see if she could help calm her down. The girls were next door all the time playing with her bells, watching cartoons and eating donuts or cookies. When we would make more than enough dinner and share with her, she always returned our Tupperware filled with homemade fudge. I also remember going to her 90th birthday celebration and listening to all the wonderful stories that people told about this amazing lady. We were so blessed to live next door to her for almost 10 years. She was truly a special lady.

  4. I worked with Jackie many, many years ago on a volunteer committee at the United Way. She was so intelligent, compassionate and fun to be around. She was proud of her daughter and her family. I’ve done a lot of work in the ensuing years and Jackie always stayed in my memory as a special person.
    My sympathies to her family. May your memories bring you peace.
