Jackie attended school in Liverpool. She graduated from the Maternity Nursing Program (1955) at Grace Hospital of the Salvation Army, Halifax, after which she worked in Bridgewater and Liverpool NS. In 1957 she accepted a position as a private nurse in New Canaan, Connecticut. In 1959, Jackie joined Drs. Brown and Crary as they established the New Canaan Medical Group. She was employed by the practice until her retirement in 2005, but continued to provide assistance in various capacities when needed for many years thereafter.
She was a Patient Support Volunteer through the Visiting Nurses of Wilton and volunteered with local medical clinics sponsored by the Lapham Senior Center. Jackie was also the President of the Village of New Canaan Condo Association.
Jackie was a beloved friend to many. She was a good listener and provider of sage advice; she was always there to help a friend in need. She will be remembered for her love of Nova Scotia, family, friends and all things Scottie. She will be sorely missed.
The family wishes to thank Jackie’s many friends in the New Canaan area who have supported her in recent years.
