Every once in a while a person comes into your life that you instantly adore. Jackie’s that person. From the moment you met her you knew she was someone special. We of course knew her through golf, specifically as a member of the Ladies League at the Falcon Lake Golf Course. There is no doubt that Jackie was a bright light out of our bunch. Rain or shine she always showed up for golf with a beaming smile—and while she was a pretty good golfer, she never took the game so seriously that everyone, at every level, wanted to partner with her.
On the 19th hole, at the annual club meetings and wind-ups, and on those wild Nellie excursions, she was pretty awesome too.
Last summer our special girl Jackie insisted that our 25th Annual Ladies Classic Cancer Fundraiser change it’s focus to support Colon Cancer initiatives. She selflessly volunteered herself to promote the event subsequently bringing in thousands of extra dollars from her own circle of friends and family.
We will never forget Jackie bravely standing before 200 of us at the end of the tournament that day sharing her heart-breaking journey living with Colin Cancer.
Jackie you truly are an inspiration to us all. Every single member of the Falcon Lake Golf Ladies League is going to miss your positive energy, your kind words of encouragement on the course and especially we’re going to miss your stories and the pride you felt for each and every one of your children and grandchildren.
Our condolences to you Glen and to your entire family as you navigate through this most difficult time.
