Jackie settled in Fremont, CA with the love of her life, Gene R. Reis 60 years ago and had 6 children. She was a devoted wife, sister, mother, aunt, grandmother, great grandmother and was a trusted adult for many youth and adults throughout the years. It was not unusual to have additional kids at our dinner table growing up and our parents often took others into their home.
Jackie has been a homemaker for the past 50+ years raising her children and grandchildren. She was an avid reader, cross word puzzle expert, and an enthusiastic walker. She also had a quite extensive movie collection. Her favorite candy bar was a Butterfinger and would eat them daily. Her quick wit and sarcasm was often the way she showed her love.
