DI SALVO, Jacqueline (Jackie)

November 14, 1961 – Lethbridge, AB

March 23, 2016 – Calgary, AB

Jackie Di Salvo (nee Elemans) passed away surrounded by family and friends in Calgary, AB, on Wednesday, March 23, 2016 at the age of 54.

Jackie grew up in Lethbridge, Alberta with her large family of 10! She graduated from Catholic Central High school and finished her degree in Management at the University of Lethbridge. Her career life included the CRA, Alberta Gaming and most recently the City of Calgary.

Jackie completed several marathons finding joy and solace in her running shoes. She also loved biking, sunrises, hosting garden parties with her mom, being the office prankster, and baking. She was an avid volunteer and had a special love for cooking at the Ronald MacDonald house. She loved spending time with her children Michelle and Robert particularly on the shores of Kootenay Lake and during a recent trip to Cuba.

Jackie will forever be in our hearts but will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by her family Michelle (Deb), Robert (Gabby), her parents Frans and Ada Elemans, siblings John (Catherine), Rick (Marj), Patricia (Roman), Maria (Brent), Yvonne, Angela (Steve), Michelle (Scott), Domenic and her furry companions Dakota and Pepper.

She will also be missed by her many nieces, nephews and dear friends. A special thank you to Dr. Grace Li, the Foothills Hospital, the Urban Palliative Home Care Team and the staff from the Tom Baker Cancer Centre.

In lieu of flowers the family requests that you go for a walk, a run or a bike ride and share a chocolate chip cookie with a favourite friend!
