Our wonderful Aunt Jackie lived a very humble life centered around her children. No matter what her journey entailed through the ups and downs as a single parent or the debilitating health issues she endured; Aunt Jackie kept smiling and believing God would deliver her through it.
Today we humbly seek donations so that we may honor her memory by placing her ashes in a final resting spot at Resurrection Cemetary in Clinton Twp, Michigan.
Thank you for your consideration.
