The family of Jacqueline Elizabeth “Jackie” Carberry, 76, of Lakeville Corner, New Brunswick, sadly announces she passed away on January 3rd, 2023, after a lengthy battle with heart disease and dementia.
Jackie was born on May 4th, 1946, to Arthur and Nancy (Trattles) Trottier in Brotton, Yorskire, England. Jackie arrived in Canada in early childhood. She spoke fondly of her youth, recounting memories such as fishing in a little row boat.
In 1962, Jackie met Edward Carberry, and they wed in 1965, in Oromocto, New Brunswick. They went on to have two daughters, Mary and Angela.
Jackie worked throughout the years in the moving industry and was respected by her coworkers for her strong work ethic and sense of humour. She always had an extra sandwich on hand for those that forgot their lunch.
Jackie was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother, who ensured her family was well looked after. Beyond her family, she was always available to lend a helping hand or ear to listen, to friends and strangers alike.
She was known for her delicious banana bread, which was a staple at all family functions. She loved her time in nature. She had endless knowledge about birds and gardening. She was also an avid crafter. Jackie was known by her natural red hair and beautiful singing. She always had time for a Saturday morning yard sale. During her time at York Care Centre, she loved getting her nails done by her son in law Christopher, with whom she shared a special bond.
Jackie is lovingly remembered by many friends and all who knew her. She is survived by her daughters Mary McNee (Christopher) and Angela Carberry. She was very proud of her granddaughters, of which she had 4: Angel, Jillian, Jasmine (Jazzy), and Isabella (Bella). She is also survived by her siblings, Cheryl Mitchell, David (Colleen), as well as her nieces and nephews. She also had a special place in her heart for her niece Chantelle. She was predeceased by her parents, and her brother Robert.
A very special thank you to the loving and caring nurses at the Duffy wing of the Oromocto Hospital, and the nurses and staff at York Care Centre. The family would also like to thank Dr. Naomi White, her family doctor, who participated in her care.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the Oromocto Funeral Home. In keeping with the family’s wishes, there will be no funeral or visitation. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Oromocto SPCA, or a charity of the donor’s choice. Online condolences are gratefully accepted at www.oromoctofh.com
