After a courageous battle, our cherished mother, wife, grandmother, sister and friend passed away at the Carpenter Hospice on January 26, 2019 at the age of 73. Beloved wife of Bill for 52 years. Loving mother of Allison (Chris), Tim (Janine), Joe (Tamara) and Dan (Natasha). Proud grandmother of Aiden, Drue, Gillian, Lilah, Grady, Caius, Edison and Hugh. Dear sister of Van, Mary and Jane. 

A nurse by training, Jacqueline will be better remembered for nursing her family over 50 years, for being a friend, a bright spot and a competitor at the Roseland and Aldershot clubs, for the time she spent doting on her grandchildren, and for the partner she was to her husband Bill.

The family is looking forward to hosting guests at a Celebration of Life to be held at DAVID BRALEY AND NANCY GORDON ROCK GARDEN at the Royal Botanical Gardens at 1185 York Boulevard, HAMILTON on Friday, February 1st.
