In 1978, Don and Jackie left Whitby when they purchased and operated the former Miller General Store in Haliburton, Ontario and ran it under their name until Don's death in July 1995. Jackie sold the store at that time and moved to Lindsay, Ontario where she lived until 2007, when she moved back to the Oshawa-Whitby area, eventually taking up residence at the Court in Brooklin.

She is survived by loving sons Robert (Patti Saunders) of San Antonio, Texas; Terry (Linda Banks) of Kitchener-Waterloo; Joe (Diane Banks) and David (Sandra Faulkner) of Oshawa.
