Passed peacefully at Northumberland Hills Hospital November 24, 2018 in her 95th year. Beloved wife of the late Hector Bates. Cherished mother of Barbara Bates and the late Louise Prosser. Loving grandmother of Cameron, Greg, Sarah and Scott. Great grandmother to 7 wonderful children. Sister to Paul and Peter Shepherd and the late Gwen Lawaski. Jacqueline will be deeply missed by her loving nieces, nephews and friends. There is so much to be said about this wonderful, strong woman.
