Condolences

Sorry for your loss she will be missed by many.

The loss of Jackie is so tragic; a loss felt by many of us from St. Mary's Church who worked with her over the years. She encouraged and inspired us to work in small groups for the betterment of our parish and for the development our own faith growth. She assisted many through her very strong faith to find their own faith paths. She will be missed by us all.

Singing beside you in the choir for many years at St. Mary's is a special memory. How you helped me through my father's death I will never forget. I loved planning and working with you in small groups at St. Mary's.

Jackie was our daughters teacher at St. Marys. Also very happy to communicate . Excellent teacher and friend. Miss her

It is hard to imagine St. Mary’s without her pastoral presence. Having known her for over forty years as founder of “coming together”, her resounding tenor voice in choir. will always remain sweet memories for us. Since she was also a neighbor on Nupp Drive, we will miss her dog walks and short chats that enabled. May the angels lead you into Paradise,Jackie!

So sorry to hear of Jackie's passing. Remembering our times at St Mary's - Monday morning Little Rock Scripture Study and St Mary's choir especially. Rest in peace Jackie.

Please accept my sympathies on your loss. She had a lasting impact on my return to the church.

So sorry to hear about Jackie's death. She was a great mentor to me when I was teaching CCD. She was the reason I went to college late in life and became a social worker. Prayers for all of you.

One of my favorite teachers at St. Mary's who really cared about the children in her class. I still called her
"Mrs. Lee" as an adult and enjoyed playing catch up when we would see each other at the library. My thoughts are with her children and their families.

So sorry to hear od Jackie's passing. Unfortunately, I have obligations in Stow on Thursday and will be unable to join you. Jackie was a delightful addition to our Pastoral Staff back in the early 80's. Her eagerness to pursue further studies in Theology and Religious Education -- at considerable effort driving up to John Carroll and the Seminary every week -- brought a professional level of preparation to her work in Religious Education at St. Mary's Church. Her gentle, but strong, faith and willingness to share her faith journey were a blessing to many. It was a privilege to serve with her. May Jackie rest in peace -- and may you experience God's gentle care in this time of sadness. Fr. Paul Rosing

Lee children: so sorry for your mom’s passing. She and I, along with Scott Powers, were hired to teach at St Mary’s school in 1979. We shared teaching duties for grades 4-8. Susan, I was your fourth grade “homeroom” teacher. Your mom was so dedicated and such a good person to work with, even though i only stayed a year. May your memories bring you comfort in the days ahead and know that I hold you and get in my prayers.

I am very sorry to hear of Mrs. Lee’s passing. She was my junior high teacher at St. Mary and remember her approaching everything in a positive way. She will be missed by many. Prayers for her family.
