Send Condolence

My deepest condolences on the loss of your mom, Iris. I was Alice’s preschool teacher at Rodef Shalom. I always enjoyed seeing her. She was a ray of sunshine. She loved you and Alice very much. Sending lots of love your way. 💕

As can be seen from the obituary, Jackie valued family, friends, and neighbors. If we helped her or her household in any way, Jackie was sure to say thank you in person or leave a message for us on the machine. We often listened to the messages twice because they were so exact and sincere. She always started the message with, “This is Jackie,” but we would have known that voice anywhere. It was a voice that welcomed us when we moved into the Court years ago and a voice that was an integral part of our community. We will miss the Matriarch of Highland Court.
