Jackie was born in 1937 to Mary Alice Savage Downer and William Downer and raised in Pembroke on her family's small farm. She graduated from Pembroke Academy in 1955. As an adult she lived in Concord where she loved and raised her children and was frequently visited by her grandchildren. Jackie went to secretarial school and worked at Lego and Sons in Concord for many years.

She is remembered for her bubbly personality, kindness and mischievous side. Jackie would take the initiative and lend a hand to anyone in need and could be always counted on for making and sharing a meal or desert, babysitting, or keeping a good secret. Many great times were had at her home which she made welcome to all. Jackie is remembered also for her love for her cats ( RIP Princess, Soxy, Jack and Jill), they were some of her best friends, her one-in-a-million chicken and rice soup, her candy stashes, how she was always there to talk and offer words of wisdom, and her beautiful smile.

She is predeceased by Joseph Edward Ernest Perron, by her parents Mary Alice Savage Downer and William Downer , her brother William Otis Downer.

She is the loving & ever devoted mother of Susan Woods of Loudon and Wayne E. Perron of Concord, NH and will also be sorely missed by her seven grandchildren- Ryan Woods of Loudon, Ashley M. Heisdorf and husband William of Fresno, CA, Amber L. Boedeker and husband McKayne of Concord, Christopher M. Perron of Manassas, VA, Abby Auprey of Loudon, and Allison K. Perron of Manassas, VA, and Emily R. Perron of Manassas, VA. She is also survived by Logan W. Heisdorf, her first and very cherished great-grandson. Characteristic of her selfless and giving spirit, Jackie did not want the family to be burdened with expenses of a funeral or wake and has opted to be cremated.

A celebration of life will be held in her honor in the near future.
