Jacqueline was retired following many years of service as both a Nurse’s Aid, and as an Occupational Therapist at Hotel Dieu Hospital. She was a member of the church choir, and along with her late husband Joseph, were longtime parishoners at St. Theresa Church. Our Mom’s passion in life was to love and provide for her family.
