Jacquie will be lovingly remembered by numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and her many, many friends.

Jacquie worked in the medical field in various positions for over 40 years while living in Calgary and Victoria. She had a wonderful passion for life and enjoyed a good laugh, a good party and a lively tune to dance to. This fine lady lived life to the fullest and was an inspiration to all who knew her. Jacquie was an avid fan of Canadian football and hockey and thoroughly enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping.

The family sends their thanks to Dr. Richard Cone and nursing staff at the Palliative Care Unit of NRGH for their special care.

Due to Jacquie’s love of animals, she has requested a donation to the Nanaimo SPCA in lieu of flowers.

A celebration of Jacquie’s life will be held at 1:00 p.m. Friday, February 24, 2012 at Sands Funeral Home, 1 Newcastle Avenue, Nanaimo.
