1957 - 2012
It is with great regret that we announce the passing of Jacqueline McClintock, on Thursday, August 23, 2012. Having endured a struggle with cancer, she died peacefully, in her sleep, at the age of 55, in Toronto. Loving partner of David Ross MacDonald for the past 35 years, cousin of Gerry Cameron (who so generously cared for Jacqueline over the course of her illness), sister of Irene, great friend of Gavin Drummond, Trevor Hayes and Geeta Sondhi, godmother of Veronica and Roxane Drummond. She was predeceased by her cherished relatives aunt Irene McClintock, her uncle Earl McClintock, her aunt Emily McClintock and her uncle Grant McClintock (all of whom took Jacqueline into their homes for a period when she was orphaned as an infant) and her parents Elianne Rodrigue and Donald McClintock (both of Saint-Georges- de-Beauce). Jacqueline was a gifted theatre director, and her acting workshops were followed avidly in Montreal and Toronto, as well as Amsterdam, Munich and Mallorca. Her education included study and training at Bishop's University, the Dome Theatre at Dawson College, Concordia University's film program and the Neighbourhood Playhouse of Theatre in New York City. An indomitable spirit, Jacqueline kept her sense of humour until the very end, even in the face of the darkest hours of her illness. She will be missed terribly by the great many who knew and loved her.
