Jackie McCabe passed away peacefully in her sleep, early Tuesday morning at 58 years old. Jackie was a loving and devoted wife, mother and friend -possessing some of the most admirable qualities of a human. She served her community as a nurse for over 30 years, touching and caring for the lives of many. She was admired by all for her generosity, compassion, humor, fearlessness and her never-fading ability to “tell it like it is”. She impacted the life of all that knew her and imprinted into the hearts of many that’ll cherish her forever!
Jackie is survived by her four boys: Spike, Rocky, Zach and Blake; grandchildren: Celton, Kaylee, Sierra, Rocksy, Wavely and Ranger; her K-9 companion, Oscar and several other family and friends. Her Spirit is joined with her loving husband of 41 years Ray McCabe; her mother and father, Martha Graham and Jack Fritts; her grandparents Norma and Frank Mullins whom she admired most in life; her grandson Bronson and many others.
Dates for a memorial service are to come as the family continues to raise money to celebrate the life of Jackie. Tremendous gratitude to her nurse Josh Youngman and the rest of the Hearth Hospice staff for becoming like family and making the last year and a half of her life so much better. The biggest thanks to Deanna St. John and Jennifer Armstrong for being the best support system we could ask for.
