Jackie was born at the Grey Nuns Hospital in Regina and was the middle of 5 children. They lived on the family farm South of Milestone until the age of seven. From there the family moved to Whitewood, then to Swift Current in 1963. She finished high school at O.M. Irwin Collegiate Institute and then moved to Saskatoon in 1969 where she found work at the Sanatorium. She married Dale Mundell on April 15, 1972, and they had three sons (Troy, Brett & Chad). She changed jobs along the way and worked at St. Paul’s hospital where she finished her career in the urology department after working there for over 35 years
Jackie loved to travel, and went on many trips with her brothers and sisters. She did not like being in a storm on a sail boat, but who would.
Jackie enjoyed preparing and cooking delicious meals in the kitchen. When she wasn’t there you could find her working in her garden where she loved to spend warm summer days making her backyard look beautiful. There was never a holiday or birthday that went by at Grandma Jackie’s without a delicious meal prepared with vegetables from her garden. She loved to have all of her kids and grandkids together as often as possible.
Jackie was loved and adored by her many friends including Huguette, Valerie and Marylin who will all fondly remember and sadly miss her.
A grave side service will be held on Friday August 13th 2021 at 1:00pm at Woodlawn Cemetery with a celebration of life to follow at Jackie’s backyard.
