I was sorry to hear of Jacquie's passing. The few of us who remain from the SHAIR International Resource Centre in the 70's and 80's remember well the meetings at the home n Westdale and the energy and commitment brought to our work for international development in schools and elsewhere.
Sorry to be slow and just catching up or would have tried to make it to the visitation.
While we have fallen out of touch since those times, I still wish David and family all the best. From the look of the photos, Jacquie continued to have a happy and fulfilling life

Dearest Jacquie,
We were friends for 23 years. We shared so many wonderful memories. The cottage days, dinner parties, lunch at the Bean Bar and card games will remain as fond fun memories.
You touched so many people in an individual way and that was very evident in the number of people who came to pay their respects yesterday.
May you rest in peace as you watch over your family from Heaven.
I love you Jacquie.

When our boys (Nathan and Andrew) were 9 years old , Jackie and I took them to Canada’s Wonderland..After a fun filled day, returning home, Nathan said he was going to be sick.. we pulled off at the next exit.. throwing the doors for Nathan..
We all got out of the car and Andrew started to do his Tyrannosaurus Rex rendition, which gave us all a much needed laugh..
I will always remember that day..
I am so sorry for your loss..

Well it is always difficult to say goodbye to a family member but sometimes we have to and this is one such an occasion.

I will always remember Jackie, my cousin, as a friendly, loving, supporting person.

I will always remember our youth, our parents and the love that surrounded us all. Jackie’s mom cooking the meal to always remember and Aunt Shirley saying come on just one more helping.

After I met my wife Nancy now of more than 48 years together she was adopted by the Love family and later on David as a special person, and they all stated, welcome to the family.

These are the memories I will cherish forever.

Jackie I will think of you always, will miss you and hopefully you can now Rest In Peace, love, John and Nancy

Dear David and Family,

My sincerest condolences for a loss of a truly remarkable lady.
Aunt Jackie was always a warm and positive influence for me. I remember fondly her hugs and support growing up.

May she rest in peace now

Love Melissa and family xo

Dear Jacquie,
The words are not coming to me as eloquently as they would for you if the shoes were on anothers’ feet. That’s just it. Even though you would often say you couldn’t imagine you actually did. You were there for so many first and foremost a daughter any mother would be proud to name, a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, educator and dear friend. As you expected your students to be positive, pleasant and productive you lead by example. Mostly always having a positive spin on any circumstance including your own. No matter what the weather you wore your bright disposition and kept us all together remembering that life was precious...each and every moment. “If not now...when?” Truly you brought love, life and laughter to us all and I will forever be grateful God graced me with you in my life.

I am sad and very surprised to hear about Jacquie’s death. I will always remember her friendliness, thoughtfulness and courage. I will miss her at the pool where she regularly engaged in lively conversations with us. It was always fun to discuss politics, restaurants, family life, work life and of course things that made us ask, “But why”?

I am truly sorry for your loss, David. She was very devoted to you and you sons and their families. She spoke about you all with much love and tenderness. She felt very blessed to have shared her life with you.

Jacquie and I were friends for 50 years. We met at Norwood Park School when Jacquie began to teach and I was her mentor. She was an excellent teacher. Over the years we had lunch together a couple of times a year and she would bring me up to date on her children and grandchildren and share with me the many trips she and David had taken together. She loved her family! She was always enthusiastic and cheerful. My condolences to David and the rest of the family at this sad time in the loss of a wife, mother, grandmother, sister and dear friend.
