Jacqueline Louise Goodeye of Bowden, Alberta passed away Tuesday, June 22, 2021 at the age of 74 years.
Jackie was born in Innisfail, Alberta in November 1946. Growing up on the family farm, she first attended the Heckla school, then Dixon, then was in the first graduating class in Spruceview.
Jackie moved to Red Deer in 1965, working at Michener Centre. It was during this time she met Armond Goodeye, whom she married on September 14, 1967. During the years that followed, Jackie had three children and worked at various locations, including the Red Deer Regional Hospital, Earl’s restaurant and Glenn’s Family Restaurant.
Jackie was very much involved in her children’s endeavours. She was a hockey mom as well as a ringette, basketball, softball and baseball mom. Many of her children’s friends affectionately referred to her as Mama G. Jackie enjoyed dancing, embroidery, knitting and listening to the various bands that played at the Buffalo Hotel. She also enjoyed camping and road trips.
In 1994, Jackie moved to Bowden, Alberta, where she met Wayne. They resided in Bowden until the time of her passing.
