Jackie Pereira Obituary
Jackie Pereira Apr. 06, 1934 Nov. 18, 2013 Resident of Brentwood Jackie Pereira died suddenly on Monday. She touched many lives with her warm personality and loving heart. Jackie was born in Portugal, the youngest of 8 children in the middle of the Great Depression. She married on Christmas night 1959. Jackie had three children and was a homemaker early in her life. In 1966 she and her husband sacrificed their lives in Portugal to bring their children to the United States for greater opportunities and a better life. Not being able to speak, read or write English, Jackie initially continued to take care of her home and family. After a few years, Jackie began working at Kaiser Hospital, Walnut Creek. There, Jackie began a second life that encompassed new friends who became a second family to her. Jackie was well known and highly regarded by those she worked with and met throughout her 32 years of employment at Kaiser. She lived most of her life in Clayton, before moving to Brentwood in August of this year. Jackie is survived by her loving husband, Luis; devoted children Tony of Oakley, Maria Coats (Tim) of Antioch, and Mario of Durham, CT (Tammy). She is also survived by her grandchildren, Elena Pereira of Sacramento, Matthew Coats of Antioch, Julian Pereira of Durham, CT and Olivia Pereira of Durham, CT. Services will be conducted Saturday, Nov. 23, 2013 at 12:00 p.m. at St. Bonaventure Catholic Church, 5562 Clayton Rd in Concord, CA. Friends and family are invited to celebrate her life after the service at her home.
