Jacqueline "Jackie" Lee Cavanaugh, the beloved wife of Michael Cavanaugh, passed away after a brief illness on Saturday, April 20, 2019. Jackie was born in Norwich, England on February 22, 1957. She was the daughter of Don Cloyd and Anne Beddow. Jackie was employed for many years at Smith Brothers Insurance Company, formerly known as The Carillo Insurance Company, where she served many local citizens who considered her family because of the personal care she gave to them. Above everything else, Jackie loved her family; her and Mike had a special marriage for over thirty-five years. They both enjoyed raising their family surrounded with food, friends, support, caring for animals, and lots of love. Jackie was known far and wide for her huge smile, infectious laugh, and even bigger heart. She never met a stranger, whether it be a human or an animal. She was the matriarch and rock for her family and everyone turned to her in times of need. She was an avid reader and loved to cook, clean, and care for everyone. As her mom always said, "Oh, how we laughed!" Nothing made her happier than to have her family gathered in her home around the kitchen, laughing and chatting. She'll be missed by so many friends that she met along the way, but especially by her beloved husband Michael, her daughters Alexis and Melissa, her grandson Christopher and nephew Jonathan, her sister Amy and her spouse Jeffrey, her sister Kathryn and her spouse Charles, her brother Robert and his spouse Francine, her stepdad Robert and his spouse Micki, her uncle and aunt Dean and Diane, her aunts Lita and Nettie, her many nieces and nephews, neighbors, and friends. She was the boss of all of us and we loved every minute of it. Fly high Jackie, we will miss you every minute of every day, forever. Relatives and friends are welcome to join the family on Saturday, April 27, 2019, from 10 am to 2 pm at the Windsor Locks Funeral Home, 441 Spring St., Windsor Locks. A funeral service for Jackie will be celebrated at 2 pm at the funeral home. Memorial contributions in Jackie's memory may be made to the ASPCA Foundation.

Please accept our deepest sympathy, as we are just learning of Jackie's passing. Jackie was our agent for as long as I can remember, she was the reason why we never changed insurance companies. I saw her the week before and had a nice conversation and ended with a big hug when we left. She was a beautiful person with a great smile and kind words. Jackie will be greatly missed.

Dear Mike - My husband-Lucas Hernandez from Palisado Ave in Windsor and I and our son wish to convey our deepest felt condolences in the passing of the lovely, lovely person that is Jackie. She was so sweet when I dealt with her as she had our home and auto plans for a bit a couple years back. I was stunned to learn she has left us. My husband found out from the mail man who took over your route. We are so very sorry that she has had to leave and we send you and your loved ones our thoughts, prayers and our heart felt condolences at this sad time. We would have been there had we found out sooner about the service this past weekend. Please feel free to contact Lucas anytime at 860-796-5290 as I am sure he would be so happy to hear from you. Once again our heartfelt condolences Mike-may she rest in peace and may you and your family take comfort in knowing you have this beautiful person and now angel in Heaven looking out for you all.

As clients for more than 25 years, we really did feel as though we were a part of Jackie's extended family. She took care of us like we were her own, the very definition of a caring professional. We will certainly miss her. We send our deepest condolences to her family and friends.
