Suddenly on the 25th day of August, 2009, our beloved daughter and sister passed away in Vernon, B.C. She is survived by her mother and father, Mira and John and her sister, Jessica all of Vernon, B.C.; and her paternal grandmother, Vilma Matejicka of Slovakia. Jackie also leaves to mourn her passing, uncles, aunts and cousins in Slovakia and France and many friends. She was preceded in death by her paternal grandfather, Ondrej Matejicka and her maternal grandparents, Maria and Stefan Hlavata all of Slovakia.
Our beautiful daughter was born the 12th day of November, 1989 at Grace Hospital in Vancouver, B.C. At the age of one year Jackie and her family moved to Prince Rupert where she attended the Catholic School completing Grade 8. The family moved to Vernon and Jackie completed her education at Clarence Fulton High School and graduated in 2007. Our Jackie enjoyed the company of her many friends and her smile was a highlight. The family home on the lake allowed her to share her time in the water and on the beach. Jackie enjoyed traveling and recently returned from a trip to Slovakia with her sister Jessica.
