ELLIOTT, Jackolyn Patricia Eliott - Obituary | Print |

ELLIOTT, Jackolyn Patricia -

December 2, 1932 - May 17, 2015

Jackolyn passed peacefully listening to one of her favourite pieces of music. She was loved and will be missed by family, extended family, and friends around the world. Her grace, vivacity and enthusiasm marked all her activities and encounters. Jackolyn's life was concert dates, and wherever she travelled she returned with new friends. The youngest of the 3 Elliott sisters, she leaves behind Mrs. June Charbonneau, Mississauga, ON, and family, and Mrs. Georgina (Jo) Samis, Edmonton, AB, and family.

Jackolyn was married for 15 years to the late William Frank Marsh, and she also leaves behind her step- children Paul Marsh, Burlington, ON and family, Ms. Linda Marsh, Toronto, ON, and family, and foster daughter Susan Vernon Marie Acquin. Born in Toronto to Margaret Daly Elliott and George Elliott, the family moved to Oshawa and then Bowmanville while Jackolyn was growing up.

While in Bowmanville, her father ran "Liberty Bowl" where Jackolyn was "Queen of the 5-Pins," until she graduated from Bowmanville High School and moved to Toronto to attend Ryerson Institute of Technology. After graduation, Jackolyn taught in Cornwall, Perth and Barrie before settling into the York District School Board where she taught at Bayview Secondary School, and Don Head Secondary School, where she was the Department Head of the Tech department. She retired after a full career in 1987. In retirement, Jackolyn started a business to teach ESL.

She specialized in working with entire families. Her love of language and communication were both her hobby and livelihood. Jackolyn's life was especially marked by her personal enquiry into the purpose and meaning of life. Her search was answered in 1968 when she met Kenneth George Mills (1923-2004). She was always proud to say that she had the fire of both her Irish and Sicilian heritage, and she focused that fire in an extraordinary way in her role in Dr. Mills' life and with those who gathered around him.

Heartfelt thanks to the staff of Dufferin Oaks, who were so responsive to this extraordinary woman during the past 18 months.

Although the interment in the family plot will be private, there will be a gathering of friends at the Egan Funeral Home, 203 Queen Street S. (Hwy. 50), Bolton (905-857-2213) on Saturday, July 25 from 2 - 4 o'clock.

In lieu of flowers, please consider contributing to your favourite charity.

Jackolyn's favourites included The Kenneth G. Mills Foundation, The Muskoka Chautauqua, The Headwaters Hospital in Orangeville.

Here's to you, Jackolyn - may we all live as fully!
