Jackie Onufreychuk of Kamloops passed away on March 16, 2021 at 74 years of age. She is survived by her loving children Tony Onufreychuk of Calgary and Mary Onufreychuk of Kamloops, her grandchildren Ashton, Rohan, Evin, Julie, Taylor, Jorie, Iyla, and her brothers Fred and Norman Downs.
She was predeceased by her husband Jack Onufreychuk.
Jackie was born in Calgary, AB on July 23, 1946. After completing her nursing, she moved to Kamloops and worked at RIH before gaining a position at Overlander Extended Care hospital. Jackie met her husband Jack in Kamloops and it was there that they raised their two children Mary and Tony. She enjoyed time with all her grandchildren. Mom was devoted to many different organizations and volunteered countless hours outside of working fulltime as a nurse and being a mother and wife. Her biggest involvement and passion belonged to the Girl Guides of Canada. She wore many hats within this organization, and she was proud of every moment she spent within it and greatly cherished all her sisters in guiding.
There will be no formal service by request.
