Supported lovingly by family and friends, 47 year old Jacqueline Denise Boreen passed away at the Rocky Mountain Village in the early morning hours on Monday, June 8, 2015. The youngest of 2 daughters, Jacquie was born on August 8, 1967 to parents Harvey and Norma Partridge.
Jacquie is survived by her devoted husband David Boreen of Jaffray, 3 children: Ashley (Chris) Devine of Sparwood, Michael Boreen of Burnaby, and Courtney Boreen of Jaffray, 3 precious grandchildren: Aaralyn, Chase and Nathan Devine, her father Harvey Partridge of Cranbrook, her sister Natalie Draycott of Calgary, and nephews Hayden (Aneka) Draycott of Edmonton and Logan Draycott of Calgary. Also mourning her loss are in-laws Arlen and Stella Boreen of Fernie, Pam (Ed) Yuszko with Jessica, Justine, and Zane of Jaffray, and Chris (Jody) Boreen with Emma, Nicholas and Matthew of Victoria. She was predeceased by her mother Norma and her firstborn baby, Gracie Lynn.
As a young girl Jacquie moved with her parents from Alberta to BC, living for a brief time in Sparwood before settling in Fernie. Jacquie graduated from Fernie Secondary in 1985, and on August 31st of that summer married her high school sweetheart, David Boreen. By October 1999 the couple had moved to Jaffray where they raised their 3 children in a home filled with love and laughter. Throughout the years Jacquie worked a few small jobs, including dispatcher for the Jaffray Fire Department, but she was always happiest being a stay-at-home mom, dedicated to her family and raising her children. Even an MS diagnosis 18 years ago could not dampen her determined, courageous spirit; Jacquie faced the challenge head-on and continued to embrace life with a loving and caring heart. Her memory will live on within the hearts of those who loved her.
Memorial tributes may be made in Jacquie’s memory to the Rocky Mountain Village, Ladies Auxiliary, 55 Cokato Rd. Fernie, BC V0B 1M4. Messages & condolences shared at www.cherishedmemoriesfs.com Arrangements entrusted to Cherished Memories Funeral Services Ltd.
