    My deepest sympathies go out to Brenda, Mark, Scott and their extended families. I was very saddened to hear of Jackie's passing. She was a beautiful women and a dear friend to me while living in Princeton Valley. I will never forget the fun times we had together. We enjoyed life while enjoying each others company. She will be dearly missed by all.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Was surprised to see Jackie's obit in the paper. I didn't know her well, just saw her in church and once in awhile about. She was such a vibrant woman, always a smile on her face and a kind word. Although I haven't seen Jackie in church lately, and I've missed her. She use to sit behind me. Unfortunately, other commitments will keep me from attending her funeral. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

    Hi, I took care of Jacqueline while she was in the hospital. She was a wonderful person everyone on 5th floor adored her. With eveything that she was going through she had a positive attitude and a smile on her face. I would trade my hall just so I could take care of her. I am so sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Dawn

    Maria and I , had the opportunity to be neighbors to the Erickson for more than 30 years . They were the best neighbors anyone could have.
    We shared a lot of great memories, seeing our children growing and having their own families.
    Even though we moved to TX , we still think of Eau Claire WI as our home.
    We are sure that Scott, Mark and Brenda, and their families are going to miss their beloved mom. Our condolences to the family.

    Such a lovely woman! Jackie will be missed. She regularly participated in my water aerobics classes over the years and I was inspired by her dedication to staying fit. May Jackie's family and friends find comfort in the warmth and friendliness she leaves as a legacy.
