Marie Jacqueline McNabb

Marie Jacqueline McNabb was passed over to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and loving husband, Norman on Saturday, October 15, 2016. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and unconditional love at Joseph Creek Care Village in Cranbrook, BC.

Jackie was born December 9, 1928 in Premier Mine, BC. She fell in love with Norman Archibald McNabb and spent 66 wonderful years married to her best friend. Jackie and Norm had 6 children, Doug, Gaye, Duncan, John, Robyn and Joy and raised them in Golden and Castlegar, BC.

Jackie, a loving mother, exceptional grandmother, great grandmother and friend will be truly missed by all whom loved her and those that grew to love her over her final years. It was easy for her to make friends and help those in need even in her last week of life on earth. The love for her family was intense and unwavering. She enjoyed painting, knitting and traveling and summers at Christina Lake.

The family would like to give special thanks to the staff at Joseph Creek Care Village (Fisher and Jim Smith neighborhoods) for the care and dedication to mom’s wellbeing. Thanks to Dr. Kevin McIver for your compassion to mom and the family during her final days.
