Jacqueline Fox Schenker
October 6, 1946 - February 1, 2013
My mom, Jacqueline Fox Schenker, aged 66, died peacefully on February 1, 2013 surrounded by her friends and family, after a brief struggle with cancer. Jackie was born October 6, 1946 and lived the fullest life one could possibly live. She was married to her soul mate Richard Schenker and is survived by her daughter Danielle Schenker who loves her more than words will ever capture, her son-in-law Paul Peters, and her brand new grandson Jack Richard, who she was able to hold and who will grow to know what a stellar grandmother he had. She read the obituaries every day without fail and used to say that if she did not see her name, it was a good day. My mom was the most perfect blend of energetic spark plug, gentle soul, mama bear, loyal friend, hostess with the mostest, lawyer and master mediator, life guru, caring confidant, wild child, foodie, sophisticated lady, little sister, doting wife and mother, world traveler, chef extraordinaire and wise sage all wrapped into five feet two inches of pure beautiful. She could quite literally change someone's life in a single conversation, with simple words of wisdom that resonate infinitely. Her motto in life was threefold: always be brave, something good always comes from something bad, and nothing is forever. Mom, you are loved by so many, but none more than me. You will always be my best friend and a million thank yous could not begin to express my appreciation for everything you are and everything you have done to make me the person I am today. May you and Daddy share a million new adventures up there, but save a few for me. See you on the other side. - "Bluie"
