Jacqueline (Jackie) K. Nishimura|
March 16, 1947 ~ April 23, 2013
After a brief illness, Jackie peacefully went into her Lord and Savior's arms. Jackie was born in Caldwell, ID, the oldest of 7 children to George and Haruye (Yasui) Doi, who pre-deceased her.
Jackie leaves Paul, her husband of almost 44 years, and 2 children - Aaron (Kathy) and Laura (Hayato) Kondo; plus 2 granddaughters, Makena and Camdyn Nishimura.
Jackie was devoted to God and family. A special education teacher in the Seattle School District, she was also a long time Sunday school teacher and children's leader at Bible Study Fellowship. She enjoyed cheering on the Mariners and Huskies, playing board and card games, tending to her garden, and working puzzles. Jackie will be remembered for her glowing smile and gentle spirit.
A celebration of life open house has been scheduled. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for details. The family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation for children's books for the Edmonds Library.
