Dear family...our hearts were so saddened to learn of Jacque’s passing. She was an amazing, wonderful woman. She was a resident of Morningside and a dear friend to my Mom, Doris Richardson. They looked out after each other. They shared many laughs and memories together and we both dearly loved Jacque. Please accept our most heartfelt sympathy. With love and prayers...DeDe Blake and Doris Richardson
