Jackie was born to Marlene (née Roettger) and Duane Frank on February 15, 1969 in Humboldt, SK, and she was later raised by Marlene and Ervin Jaeb after Duane’s passing. Growing up, she had a family life filled with camping trips, fishing, Sunday drives, and visiting friends along the way. Jackie enjoyed walks with her sister Carla and her Mom, games of cards, and visiting friends and family who were always glad for surprise ‘drop-in’ visits. She lived all her life in Humboldt and graduated from high school in 1988. After taking the Early Childhood Course, Jackie held jobs as a waitress and babysitter, and she worked until her health failed her. Her dream job was to be a bus driver. Jackie was known for her quiet nature but when she got to know you, her filter came off! She was full of one liners that would sometimes blow your hair back and then she would cover her mouth with her hand and laugh. How she loved to giggle! Her family was a joy for her, and she was a very proud Auntie to Janessa, Andrew, and Damon. She loved them very much, thought of them always, and was excited for Janessa and Trevor and their new baby due this New Year. Butterflies and purple were two favourite themes for Jackie in her home and she liked to collect salt and pepper shakers too. Her home was full of trinkets and pictures. She kept a neat and clean home which felt warm and welcoming with all of her special touches. In her spare time, she enjoyed colouring in the now popular, adult colouring books, and listening to old country classics for hours. As she got older, she appreciated the quiet and would take walks to relax and be with nature. A great animal lover, Jackie enjoyed Murphy the house dog and his antics, and she often had a cat living with her as well. Jackie would call her mom and Carla three or four times everyday. These were just quick calls but a simple way to keep in touch. A few years ago, Jackie met her boyfriend Clem. They enjoyed meals, watching movies, driving around, going to the Bruno Cherry Festival, the Pilger Pumpkin Festival, and spending time together. Jackie was known for her good humour and people enjoyed having a chat with her. Over the last few years, her breathing became an issue for her and each winter she would usually lose her voice at some point, but despite her many medical struggles, she would just keep pushing through and she did so until her last day. We will all miss hearing Jackie’s voice and she will be sadly missed by all those who loved her.
