She proudly served with the Canadian Military becoming a corporal in the Army. Jackie was a lifetime member of the Royal Canadian Legion and enjoyed many events there, including darts. She loved to curl and chaperoned for many tours with her Children’s Drum Corps, both the Red and White Aires and Calgary Cavaliers. She will be remembered for her mischievous ways, discussions and opinions, her sense of humor, her open-door policy for all of her family and friends, her sparkling blue eyes, red lipstick, and love of animals.
