Obituary of 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.  Due to Covid 19 restrictions, her funeral service & interment will be held at Christ Lutheran Church at a later date and will be announced by the Malcolm, Deavitt & Binhammer Funeral Home, Pembroke. As an expression of sympathy, donations to Christ Lutheran Church Current Fund would be appreciated.  Online condolences and donations are available at www.mdbfuneralhome.com.

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace. (Numbers 6:24-27)
