Jackie was the salt of the earth and she will be missed by many. None of us will ever forget her wonderful sense of humor, generosity and common sense. She was always there to help those in need whether lending a listening ear or reaching into her pocket to make someones' life easier. Rest in Peace Jackie with those who have gone before you.

To Jackie's family:
My Deepest Sympathy for your loss.
I know that God is happy to receive her into Heaven and to end her painful suffering. We will miss her at dance class, but we know that she is looking down at us and dancing with us.

I will always remember Jackie as a teacher who cared for her students by always providing them with her best. Always prepared and expecting the same from her students. Collaboratively team teaching with Al Malo long before those words were ever used in teacher education classes. She was firm but oh so fair with her students. Those kids lucky enough to have had her for either French or English left her class with a solid foundation to build upon in the future. Beginning my own career as a very "green" new teacher, Jackie guided me through the limitless number of responsibilities and demands. She was professional, caring and a lovely woman who will be greatly missed.

"The Lord said to her, 'Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things, I will set you over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord."

Rest in peace Jackie. It was a pleasure working with you for 20+ years. You taught me a lot about what a good human being was all about.

Dear Margret, I am so sorry for the loss of your sister. She was a teacher of mine and a strict one that I have never forgotten. May she be at peace and pain free. I love you Susan
