(Nee Wolf) Born to eternal life at the age of 83 years.  Loving wife of Donald Brockman for 48 years.  Preceded in death by parents Harvey Wolf and Mildred Wolf (Nee Boylan).  Survived by her brother Douglas (Rosalie), nieces, nephews, and other relatives.  Also survived by Rick, Ryan, Jonathan  &  Megan Moze, who were like family, neighbors, Beth & Larry, and Curtis & Jenny who reside across the street whom were especially kind over the many years.  Other very dear friends Jim and Paula who befriended us like family and many others from OLOL Church who were so very kind at giving their support for Jaclyn.

Jaclyn was a graduate of Mercy High School.  The many challenges she faced in her life she met with courage and determination.  Jaclyn’s amazing smile and friendliness relaxed all other employees of Milwaukee County in the D/A’s Office, Child Support Enforcement and Health Care.

Jaclyn loved spending time with friends, sharing stories, smiles, and laughter that always left a lasting impression.  She loved to read, play table games and cards.  Jaclyn and Don literally and physically toured the world and USA while visiting many correspondents.

Jaclyn endlessly volunteered herself with serving her church, Our Lady Of Lourdes, as a server, President of Christian Woman, Children’s Games Chairman for the Festival for ten years and the waffle booth.  Make-A-Wish Foundation of WI 1999-2017 and other volunteer organizations to numerous to mention in her spare time.  A sponsorship for a youngster to race in the New Berlin Soap Box Derby was done for over three decades with the Soap Box Car holding “The Patch Man” lettering was a major function each September.

Jaclyn and Don loved to dance and when entering a favorite establishment knowing us the band played the Viennese waltz.  Yes, there are memories to behold, knowing this wonderful and courageous woman with her loving heart always graciously giving to everyone.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, July 18th from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM at Our Lady Of Lourdes Catholic Church ( 3722 S. 58th St.).  The congregation kindly asks all attending wear a mask and use the east entrance.  Mass of Christian burial will be held at a future date.  Memorials can be made to Our Lady Of Lourdes Church or Make-A-Wish Foundation.

    Jackie was such a kind hearted person ! She did so much for so many! I will miss her stories and laughter! She was may best cheerleader when I was creating things ,she always gave an honest opinion. I always hoped Jackie and Don would come back to Disney so we could enjoy all the goodies again! It was fun when they visited! We were Big Kids that day! Jackie was so proud Don was part of the flag ceremony at Magic Kingdom what a special honor that was! I will think of her often ,I will miss her always! I’m sure she will watch over us all!

    Jackie and Don are neighbors to my daughter Jenny. Jackie and Jenny formed a bond based on their love of Disney and especially Mickey Mouse. Jackie quickly became a Grandmother figure to Jenny and they all looked out for each other over the years.Our family last saw Jackie on Halloween of 2019 where Jackie and Don came over to share in the festivities. Even though Jackie was suffering from cancer she was the life of the party, sharing stories and laughing. She was a wonderful person to be around. Jenny would keep us updated on Jackie’s condition and the fight Jackie was fighting. I want to thank Jackie for looking out for my daughter and giving her someone else to look up to. Her friendship meant the world to my daughter and I know she will be missed and thought of often. May she Rest In Peace.

    So very sorry to hear of Jackie’s passing. She was such a very special, loving person who was always asking how the girls were and how the family was doing. I always loved to see her in church and she will be miss greatly. Know that you have a lot of love and support and if you need anything, please call. Hugs to you Don, and you will be in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
