1931 - 2020
LENNOXVILLE – Jackie Patrick (nee Marie Jeanne D’Arc Jacqueline DeBlois) passed away peacefully in her home on Saturday January 4, 2020 at the age of 88 under the exceptional and loving care of the Grace Village professional staff.
Born December 15, 1931 in Kirkland Lake, Ontario, Jackie was the daughter of Arthur DeBlois and Marie Deblois (nee Ménard).
Jackie will be forever remembered by her beloved children: Michael and his wife Anne, Jill (Lou Marone deceased 2015) , Christopher and his wife Maureen, Kelley-Anne and her husband Charles, Scott and his wife Johanne, Sean and his wife Simone, her 18 wonderful grandchildren, and seven (soon to be eight) great-grandchildren.
Widow of the late Donald Patrick (deceased 1981), Jackie was a devoted and loving wife, mother, Grandma, Grandmaman and Great-Grandmother to us all. Jackie will be sadly missed yet always joyfully present in our lives and the lives of the many who had the honour of knowing her.
"If I had a flower for every time I thought of you ... I could walk in my own garden forever." — Alfred, Lord Tennyson
She was preceded in death by her sister Betty, and three brothers Johnny, René, and Paul.
