Jackie Nieman


 NIEMAN, Jacqueline Susan

May 26, 1968 – April 23, 2021

After an almost 53-year battle with spina bifida, and most recently a 19-month hospital stay, Jackie has gone to her heavenly home where she joins her parents, George & Anita (nee Pitzner) Nieman.  She leaves to mourn her siblings, Carole, Kevin (Catherine), Perry (Elaine), Sherwood (Katherina) and Bonnie (Leonard) Schryer; her 17 nieces & nephews and 29 grandnieces & nephews; as well as many extended family, dear friends, church family and health care providers from March of Dimes.  Jackie was predeceased by her best friend & cousin, Karoline Bielecki, as well as by her companion & greatest love, Libby (her therapy dog). Jackie was known for her distaste of the colour yellow, and of bad grammar.  She was a devout Christian, a staunch advocate for the disabled, a fan of anything “Shakespeare” (either live or in print), a multi-talented craftsperson, and a patient & enlightened photographer. She will be dearly missed.  

Honoring Jackie’s wishes, there will be no wake, cremation has taken place.  A Memorial Service will be held at Christ Lutheran Church, Petawawa on Sunday, July 4, 2021 at 3:00 p.m., and will be livestreamed from the church facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/CLC-Livestream-109494214147705.  DUE TO THE CURRENT RESTRICTIONS REGARDING COVID-19 SET FORTH BY THE BEREAVEMENT AUTHORITY OF ONTARIO, A LIMITED NUMBER OF PEOPLE ARE PERMITTED AT THE CHURCH. Please call the funeral home at (613) 732-3637 to make a reservation if you wish to attend the service.  Interment in Christ Lutheran Cemetery.  Arrangements entrusted to Malcolm, Deavitt & Binhammer Funeral Home, Pembroke.
