Jacqueline Wilma Miles born October 13, 1964.
It’s with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Jackie on Sunday, April 12, 2020 at the age of 55. It gives us great comfort knowing she was with her one true love, Mike. She is lovingly remembered by her son, Timmy; daughter, Missy; sisters, Susie and Tammy; and brother, Joey; as well as her 5 grandchildren, Chloe, Deon, Nathan, Frankie & Zoe.
She will be known for her unique personality. She had a love for her family and friends and loved to make people laugh whether it was laughing at her or laughing with her. She enjoyed cooking, camping, drawing and being with her animals.
She loved people and loved being around people; you always knew when Jackie was in the room she had such an infectious, contagious way about her.
We will miss her deeply but her energy and love will be with us forever. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
Below is a poem that our Mom left us when she passed away in 2004, we would like to use it to carry on with Jackie.
You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you smile because
she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray
that she’ll come back,
or you can open your eyes
and see all she’s left.
Your heart can be empty because
you can’t see her, or you can
be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back
on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow
because of yesterday.
You can remember her and
only that she’s gone, or you can
cherish her memory
and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back,
or you do what she’d want:
smile, open your eyes,
love and go on.
Jackie will be be missed by all that knew her. My memories of her will always leave a smile on my face as I recall all the funny stores she had. My condolences to her family and close friends.
It was a very special moment the day Jackie married Mike and she became part of our family. She was and always will be remembered as a special part of our and Robbies life. We enjoyed her company, infectious laugh and her giddy manner was always something special. She always went out of the way to pay special attention to Robbie. We will surely miss her. Condolences to all of Jackie's family.
Jackie was my favourite cousin and childhood best friend. She was smart, beautiful, funny, energetic, direct, sweet, fun, naughty, loving, mischievous, the loudest in the room, and tough as shit. So many memories of the “trouble” we used to get into, and all the fun and laughs we had. I never did thank her for “ beating up” all those boys. I’ll remember her with her great smile, big dimples and twinkle in her eyes. Timmy, Missy, Susie, Tammy, Joey, and families, so sorry for your loss. She was special, truly 1 of a kind. Love you all Condolences to all her family and friends.
My heart will always hurt from loosing you- You taught me so much about life, love and loving myself. Your heart was so full of love to everyone you embraced. Your laugh was truly one of a kind, a contagious one that would make anyone laugh with you, whether they knew you or not. I love you Wacko Your life made mine better.
Jackie was always such a funny and outgoing person to be around. She always treated me like family. She had such a good heart you could tell just by taking to her. So sorry for you loss.
I remember Jackie's beautifull smile, the dimples and how her eyes sparkled. She could light up the room with that smile. So, so sorry for your loss.
I remember Jackie and her family when we were just kids growing up in Calgary. I remember her wonderful dimpled smile and her great sense of humour. My condolences to her family.
Our deepest condolences to all of you.
My dear cousin we grow up together we had so much fun we were the rebels in the family I am going to miss you dear cousin R I P

May aunty Jackie's soul Rest In Peace She was always the loudest in the room and always knew how to put a smile on all our faces. Whenever I was home she never treated me different always welcomed with open arms and for that I will always be grateful. You’ll truly be Missed.
May the Lord comfort you at this time. You all are in our prayers. Peter and Tracy

A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts, through us, they live on. My condolences to the whole family! I am thinking of you all! ❤️
This is Deon (one of her grandchildren). I was heartbroken when my mother had informed me that she had passed, and it pains me to still think about it.. it feels like it is not real, but sadly it is.. thankfully grandma Jackie (Jacqueline Wilma Miles) had passed knowing that we all loved her dearly, and will remain to keep her close to our hearts. Her life will live on through us, her family, rather that be her sisters, children, or, grandchildren. I did many things with her, and primarily enjoyed to talk to her, cook, draw.. just do anything with her really, I even talked to her on occasion by FaceTime when we could which was very enjoyable. But the best was when she would come over and we would make “grandmas soup” which whenever she made it, it was delicious, we would also be able to hang out, and simply talk, say what’s on our minds and just enjoy each others presence. You will me missed grandma.
