I can't believe it's been a year already since you left us. I think of you everyday and I'm so thankful that I saved the 2 voice mails from you from last May. I can hear your voice anytime I want which is comforting...and extremely emotional. Harv, April and I are coming to visit you today in Champion and to see the new monument we had installed for you and your baby sister. I know you'd be happy with it. Love you lots and we miss you terribly.
Hi Jacq, not something you want to say on a airplane but you knew my sense of humor was always slightly different, We had 25 years of fun times and unfortunately plans don't always play out the way we expect ( likely my fault !! ) We ended up with two wonderful daughters, April and Amy and two great grand children, Jordan and Jake.so it was all worthwhile !! Everyone you knew will miss you deeply including your ex and friend ..Hugs Gary Shand
We’re thinking of you April and Amy.....your mom has gone much too soon.
Many happy memories of you all from years ago.
Hugs to you and May God bless you with his comfort and peace.

Jacquie was an incredible inspiration to me. The brutally tough journey she had with cancer left me in awe at her strength, her dignity and her courage. I will forever be changed and better because of knowing her. To Amy, Jordan, Jake and Harvey I offer up my prayers for peace and consolation. My heartfelt condolences go out to your entire family. Now Jacquie finally can rest in the peace and comfort that she so deserves. God bless you.

Heart felt condolences from the Pineo family. I've known Jacquie since about 2003, and she was a great friend and a great supporter of my musical endeavours. She got to know my wife Mary and my children, Graham and Isabelle, and was like family to them. We'll see you at her celebration of life, when things are back to normal.
My dear April and Amy, I was so sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved mom (your dad told me and I'm so grateful for that) my heart truly goes out to you guys, she was your mom .... the central part of your world from the day you were born. I've heard it said, no matter how old we are, losing a mother is one of the deepest sorrows a heart can know. My heart just breaks for you.
And Harvey, please know my thoughts are with you, just so sorry to hear of the passing of your beloved Jacquie. With my deepest sympathy, to you and April and Amy,
Thinking of you,
I have never met Jacquie, but feel like I’ve lost a very dear friend, we’ve been corresponding very regularly over the past 3/4 years, I’m pretty certain had we met we would have got on so well. I am so sorry for your lost Harvey and all the family, she was always telling me stories about you all and also about her love of being a member of Rev52. We both shared a passion for live music, I sure going to miss my email friend. Marg Tomkins UK
Our sincere condolences to the family. I met Jacquie when she was hired as business manager for the Calgary Boys’ Choir. We worked very closely together on fundraising, tour planning and chaperoning tours. Her bright eyed, energetic problem solving approach was an asset to the choir and volunteers. I continued to keep on touch for many years through attending her Rev52 concerts. Her love of music and people were liberally sprinkled there also. I remember Jacquie’s laugh, smile and overt love for “Harv” and her beautiful daughters and their families being so tangible! Although we lately had not seen each other as much, I appreciate that I have had the privilege of crossing her path in this journey on earth.
I was lucky enough to sing with Jacquie through Revv52 and will miss her. I remember her comments to me when I was choosing a new career, and her unwavering kindness and support. I've been bettered through my interactions with her and will always remember her with gratefulness. Much love to the family, thank you for sharing her with all of us.
We are so sorry to hear of Jacquie's passing. We were lucky enough to spend a few years with her in Revv52, and we will remember her as dynamic, engaging, enthusiastic, and unafraid to advocate for excellence. We remember her lessons and her laughs fondly.

What a kid! Jacquie jumped out and chose me as her friend! She so quickly recognized in me a soul sister in our passionate love of music and the music community in this city and province and country. Her grace and beauty and strength have amazed me over these 5 years and will stay with me always.
I was so sorry to hear of Jacque’s passing. I knew her as a friend through 9 years with Revv52 and her infective energy was a great inspiration to us as we prepared for our performances. My deepest sympathies to the family and friends who now will be blessed with her legacy as they move forward through their grief.
The good- fun all the time, the bad-cancer, the unbelievable- great life we had together as a family. JMS never gone, just relocated.
My sincere condolences on your loss, April, Amy, Harvey and family. My memories of your mom and partner are 50 plus years ago. Jacquie was one of my best high school friends. We shared our secrets on sleep overs at the Degenstein farm, careful that our giggling did not wake August and Dorothy. We double dated with our first boy friends. We were in a high school quartet. Our first year after university we shared our first basement apartment in Calgary. Over the early years we kept in touch sharing our joys and challenges of raising our young families. We touched base in person when I would come back to Alberta. The last time was the girls gathering celebrating Mr. Cartwrght's 80th birthday. We continued to exchange letters and then emails over the years, often mentioning the two guys named Harvey we both had met and fallen in love with. For the past few years we were not in touch much, each going on to focus on our lives. I remember her laughter and her truthful sharing. I cannot even imagine how you all are feeling. Wrap yourselves in the memory of her hugs and laughter. Sincerely, Sandra Bloxham
When I moved to Champion in 1957, I met this lively cute smart ten year old girl and we became and remained friends over the decades. We shared laughter and secrets and tears. Jacquie’s family was of the utmost importance to her. Our long telephone conversations revealed that Jordan was beautiful, smart and adventurous while Jake was handsome, loving and thoughtful towards his grandmother. April and Amy made her so proud and she was grateful for their support and nearby presence. Jacquie ran a tight ship in her personal and professional life, never wavering from her beliefs. In the face of adversity she summoned the courage to fight cancer that few of us will ever know. I can only imagine that in her new residence Jacquie has organized a Rolodex of important contacts, opened the mail, alphabetized the files, brewed the coffee and has all appointments set up for at least two weeks. I suspect that God is able to relax on his throne now that my dear friend has passed through the Pearly Gates to reside with her creator. Heaven will be a better place though she is sorely missed here on earth. Who can forget her beautiful face and perfect smile?
SHE Will BE MISSED...Our thoughts are with you Harvey, April and Amy. Her laugh, her hugs, her love of music, her multi colored glasses. Her sense of direction for the road, and Harvey. Who else would give a 3 year old a drum for Christmas and laugh. Her famous tablecloth turning ceremony at the family wedding. Her love of photos, but most of all her wanting to help , to make a difference. She loved her family, and they loved her ,and supported her through this long journey.
Take care Eileen, Jason and Matthew
Mom, I thought the hardest thing was watching you fade away the last 12 days in hospice, but seeing your picture on an obituary is actually the hardest. I keep having random thoughts about you and then I smile or I cry. Amy, Jordan, Jake, Harvey and I will remain here taking care of each other while you watch over us with our gramma and great gramma. Love, April
My memories of Jacquie are of warmth, welcoming, intelligence, and professionalism. She had such a joy in music that she shared with all. She is deeply missed.
“My Cuz, My Friend”. I’m missing you so very much, our long chats with tears and laughter. Our lunches at “Cora’s”...you so enjoyed going there. The first time you told me your Cancer was back, we were going to our yearly date at Jubilations Dinner Theatre and you said “I’ll be the one walking across the parking lot with Cancer”....One of the saddest days of my life.
Thank you so very much Harvey for all you did for Jacquie, she loved you dearly. April, Amy and family, your Mom talked about each and everyone of you with so much adoration, I am so sorry for your loss, our loss!
God blessed us all, giving you to us for a short while Jacquie, May He take care of you, for us now.
Until we meet again,
Hi mom, we're now on the 5th day since you left us and I'm still not sure what my "normal" is supposed to be, in fact that might be a long time before I figure that out. The last few months were extremely emotional and difficult yet the last 12 days with you were something I can't even begin to describe. I'm grateful that April, Harvey and I could all be with you during the last week and I'm even more grateful we were able to talk with you, smile with you, share many many stories with you and listen to Revv52 music with you. I know you'll be watching down on all of us and I hope you're already sharing stories with your mom and your gramma...the 3 of you have lots to share and catch up on. We love you and we're thinking of you always. Love always and forever, Amy.
