Jackie volunteered for decades and sat on the boards of many organizations including the Cancer Society, Art Gallery, Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Liberal Party, Manitoba Theatrefor Young People and Women's Employment Counseling Service.
Whether acting as a school board trustee, a friend or a friendly ear, Jackie helped others, lent a helping hand and an opinion.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Peg and I are very sorry for your loss. Among other things we remember many enjoyable evenings at the Winter Club playing mixed badminton and socializing in the "Sportsman Lounge" afterwards. Great fun, lots of laughs. Blessings on you Gerry and Kevin and Bryce and families. - Posted by: Robert Tollefson (friend) on: Feb 23, 2023

  • Jackie was our Air Canada Vacations rep for many years. She became a personal friend as well. She always did her best to help us both professionally and personally. Her enthusiasm and knowledge was always appreciated. She was a force to be reckoned with. She will be missed by so many. - Posted by: Dorothy Franklin (work college ) on: Feb 19, 2023

  • I have known Jackie for so many years, that it’s even hard to say when we met. She was still with Air Canada and I had my agency. She was one of those wonderful people that try to help everyone anytime she could. It breaks my heart now to know she is gone and will never be able to hear the stories and her wonderful laughter. I’m so glad I had a chance to see her this summer visiting Winnipeg and spending some times with her and the family. There are no words to express the sorrow and the pain. My deepest condolences to the family. Jackie, darling. Hope you are climbing the stairways to heaven, will miss you like crazy and love you forever - Posted by: Rimna Vizhgorodsky (Long time Friend ) on: Feb 18, 2023
