Jackie was a parishioner of St Columba Parish for almost 70 years until their closing in 2020, where she was always an active member. She was a member of the Altar and Rosary Society (also a past President), Parish Council, Eucharistic Minister, Lecture, and part of the Evangelist team, she was also an SSND associate which she loved doing as well. There was nothing that she did not volunteer her time to, one of her favorites was the St. Columba carnival held every summer. She loved working at the Thanksgiving dinner held every year for all to enjoy. She always had a very good relationship and friendship with all the Pastors through out the many years. Jackie loved her parish and took great pride in serving in any way she could. Jackie also had a great love for travel and took the opportunity whenever she could. When her kids were young her and Joe would make many trips down to Southern Illinois to visit family, and they also traveled to most of the states during the summer months. After her kids were older she was able to travel to many different countries with friends and different organizations such as England, Italy France, Africa, Medugorje Yugoslavia (being there and getting one of the last flights out of the country before the war of independence and insurgencies was started) now that was a story to share!! I guess you could say Jackie knew how to live life and she surely did.
