Jackie worked as a dental nurse at Southport Road Dental Surgery, Chorley, she enjoyed her work and with her caring nature she was always well respected by both her work colleagues and patients. At home Jackie was a devoted family lady who loved getting the family together for some quality time creating happy memories. She had many friends and loved to socialise with them. An avid runner, Jackie could often be seen out running reaching for her next fitness goal. She loved her home and always kept her garden immaculate and ensured it bloomed in full colour through the summer months. She was an amazing cook and baker and her delicious treats were always eagerly looked forward to. A cherished grandma, Jackie loved getting away with her grandsons, enjoying many wonderful adventures at the caravan at Flookburgh.

I am saddened to learn the death of Jackie, my thoughts are with you all at this devastating time.



I worked alongside Jackie for many years, Jackie taught me life was for living she was a true inspiration to me having achieved so much in the time i worked with her. Jackie would tell me to keep moving forward, onwards and up, stop letting people walk over me. Stop being so naive, she was always positive, always cheery. Beautiful inside and out. Jackie touched me like so many others a rare diamond. Jackie had such wisdom and true character. I saw Jackie years later and she had the same infectious smile and presence. I am so happy to have met such an inspiring beautiful person who left an impact on me. Jackie taught me you can achieve anything in life with hard work and determination and look good whilst doing it! To be kind and thankful. Jackie is smiling down and watching you all. I am so saddened yet i am so happy to have met Jackie, to be given the opportunity to work with Jackie and trained in a place that I knew nothing of. Jackie loved her family and always looked out for anyone in need. I have so much to say about Jackie. X I am sorry for your loss my thoughts are with all her family. Xx
