Born on September 28, 1969, in Regina, SK, Jacqueline was a free-spirited and generous soul who touched the lives of many.

She will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
Jacqueline will forever be remembered for her sociable nature and her unwavering willingness to help others. She had a heart full of love and compassion, always ready to give selflessly, even when faced with challenges. Her kindness knew no bounds, as she would literally give someone the shirt off her back if it meant making a difference in their lives. Her beautiful heart was a source of inspiration to all who had the pleasure of crossing paths with her. Jacqueline’s memory will forever live on in the hearts of those who loved her.
