    To all of Jackie’s family and friends, our deepest condolences. Jackie was such an amazing woman with such a wonderful spirit and a kind heart. She was an excellent baker, a superb volunteer and a very enjoyable sense of humor. I came to know Jackie through volunteering for the food pantry many years ago. She always had a quick wit and wasn’t afraid to keep me in check. She often talked about her family and you could tell by the stories she told and the smile she had when she spoke of them, she loved them all very very much. She will truly be missed but she will never be forgotten. She’s in all of our hearts.
