She will be sorely missed. I used to volunteer at VMP and always looked forward to spending a couple of hours with her on Saturdays. She made me aware of things I never thought of and she always amazed me. We spoke about everything from soup to nuts and she was sharp as a tack. We shared many memories about the places she worked and her beloved, Charlie and just life in general and how she loved her Swedish pancakes!!!! Thanks to her family for allowing me to get to know such a wonderful person.

I will always know her as Mrs. Jaeck. Growing up across the street from Mr. & Mrs. Jaeck, back then you always addressed elders by their last names. I spent many hours pestering them as a young boy. Then to meet her again 50 years later in the same nursing home as my mother. Having time to spend and talk about the old neighbor hood with her. And all her stories about herself and Charlie. She will be missed dearly.
