She was faithful in her worship life, always sitting in the same pew and ready with kind words.

She is survived by her sister Janet (Don) Maher; three grandchildren, Cody, Dale, and Emalee Jackson; Bob Bergin – her best friend and boyfriend; and many nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in by her daughter, Kelli Jackson, to whom she was a loving mom. She enjoyed visiting Kelli and her family at holidays and special occasions. She was also preceded in death by her parents, and her sister, Karen Sweeney.
