When I think of Jackie, my first thought is how wonderful she was, and how we always were at her house on Christmas Eve, with what seems like a million people to a very shy (although extremely cute blonde boy). It felt like that town house had 10 floors. And then I remember all the time at Oak Lake. Truly happy times and memories for me. We were all lucky to have Jackie in our lives.

Jackie will be sadly missed . She was a constant in our lives as a neighbor at the cottage and being across the street from Penny , her daughter and Lenny her son in law and their 3 children in Courtice . , also around the corner from her other daughter Nonie and husband Ken and their 3 children . We were always treated as family and with lots of love. What an honour it was to have known her and shared so many beautiful family times together. We have lost a lovely friend and lady . What a legacy she has left .
