January 4, 1970 – October 5, 2015
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved Jackie. Heaven has become a brighter place because Jackie has been reunited with her loving dad, Winston Rowsell, who predeceased her on January 30, 2010. Left to mourn her passing is her mom – Jane, Stepdad David Humphreys, sister Jo-Anne and brother-in-law Mark Cafazzo, niece Hannah, nephews Jordan, Jaden, Danny, Shiloh and Jesse, and aunts, uncles and cousins in Newfoundland, Ontario, the West Coast and Los Angeles. Jackie was a lover of life. Her family and friends were very important to her. She was a great lover of all creatures of the earth, admired butterflies, birds and squirrels. Her two pugs, Daisymae and Bosco, were dearly loved and pampered. She also loved sports, was looking forward to watching the Blue Jays in the playoffs, and was anxious to return to her special olympic bowling league, swimming and baseball. Jackie will be greatly missed, especially by her mom, and by all who knew her, including her workers and friends at WDDS, Woodstock, Ontario, where she resided. We will never forget that happy smile. Friends will be received by the family on Wednesday afternoon and evening from 2-4 & 7-9 p.m. at the Cattel, Eaton & Chambers Funeral Home, 53 Main Street, Dundas where the Celebration of Jackie’s Life will be held on Thursday at 2:30 p.m. Donations in memory of Jackie to Ronald McDonald House would be appreciated by the family.
