I had the pleasure of meeting dear Jackie many years ago. We did work at the Harkins theatre together for me a short time, we went to church together for many years, and she fixed my rosaries, made me earrings. I committed to help taker her on errands in 2017. My husband and I only live a mile from her. From the Bible studies we attended, from the women's ministry luncheons, and activities, Italian mass and dinner, international food fest, birthday parties we had for you, eating out, talking about our love for books, making each other laugh with you're many calls to us, 1-4 times daily. Thank you to your family for sharing you with us. We love you Jackie and you'll be sorely missed.

Grandma Romeo, 

You showed me what a fulfilled life can look like at any stage. Never one to slow down, you taught me that you really can have it all... it just all depends on a shift to your perspective. You have been so influential in some of life's greatest lessons. You taught me the meaning of true friendship, how to determine what life can look like by your own rules, unconditional love of family, and to find faith even in the darkest moments. You lived a long beautiful life to the rhythm of your own tune and touched so many along the way. What an honor it has been to have been apart of your journey. Say hi to JC for me and I know one day we will meet again soon! I love you with all of my heart grandma and I will miss you everyday.

Sorry to hear of Jackie's passing. I was a volunteer at Red Mountain Library. I remember training Jackie for the book store at Red Mountain after it opened in 2007...We shared love of books and talking to people. Condolences to her loved ones.

I had the privilege of working with Jackie at Harkins Theatres. She was always so loving and such a pleasure to be around. I will miss her hugs and cheerful personality.

I met Jackie while taking an archeology class at the local community college 20+ years ago. One of the first things I noticed about her was her infectious smile. She would smile and pretty soon everyone was smiling. For as long as I knew her, it seemed she never had a bad day and always looked on the bright side of things. Such a rare quality! Always happy to talk or to listen. She was a true and loyal friend. I will miss her greatly.

My Aunt Jackie.....truly....one of a kind....she was an amazing big sister to my dad. She was an inspirational, virtuous and yet accepting aunt to my sister Jenny, and I. My memory I’d like to share is-we (Aunt Jackie-my mom, dad, sister and I) were all out to eat...Aunt Jackie showed me that she got a small tattoo for her 70th Bday -I was in shock & disbelief....and Aunt Jackie says...
“Awww Erin -Get over it!” And she beams a giant grin to me from ear to ear -truly full of love and light. She always called me her Lil 🎃 and sent me Halloween Bday cards -because that was the day I was adopted ...she always made me feel special & loved. Such a BRIGHT LIGHT! 💜🍀🙏🏼Sending love to her kids and grandkids , my dad & her other adventurous friends.(P.S. Aunt J-Tell Gpa Fred, Gma Mabel & Uncle Tony I said Hi)
