Jacquelyne Beth Gertsma “JACKIE” (nee: MacLean)

Sunrise: Oakburn Manitoba July 15th, 1932 –

Sunset: Sooke B.C., January 5th, 2014

Predeceased by parents Hector and Annie MacLean, sisters: Agnes, Maime, Margaret, brother Bud and nephew Jim.

Jackie was a prairie girl to the core and never quite embraced living on the coast, always missing the farm in Alberta.

The most important thing to Jackie was family, whether those gone before her, her beloved boys, or her Home Hardware family.? Jackie LOVED to travel, was always up for “a song and dance”, loved music, sunsets and truly loved people and visiting. We think that’s what she missed most about Alberta, visiting over coffee with family and friends.

Left behind to miss her, husband of 54 years, Frank, son’s Scott (Kelly), Neil (Patricia) most special grandson Nicolas, grandchildren Jikel (Rodney), Levi (Emily), Jazmin (Theo), great grandchildren, Connor, Coral and Airlie. Nieces and nephews, Ellen, Dale, Debbie, Maureen, Heather, Marilyn, Rodney, Pam, Debbie, Annetta, John and Margo. Along with many friends old and new.

A service will be held on Tuesday January 14th at Cordova Bay United Church 813 Claremont Ave, Victoria at 2:30 pm. The Rev. Bill Cantelon officiating.

Flowers greatly appreciated? or donations, if desire to Sooke Hospice or the United Church.
