It is with saddened hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, sister, aunt, and great aunt. Jackie passed away peacefully, at home, with her family and dear friends by her side.
Jackie was born in Smithers, BC to Jack and Ena Ekman. The family moved to Prince Rupert in 1965 where Jackie attended high school and met the love of her life, Dave Wilson. She became a registered nurse through the Royal Columbian Hospital and began her nursing career Prince Rupert where she and Dave raised their two children.
Jackie always made sure her family and friends were cared for even though they would tease her about being bossy. She loved gardening and scrapbooking. Friends and family always looked forward to receiving one of her beautiful handmade cards.
