Jacqueline Susan Smothers
April 12th 1954 - November 21st 2020
In sadness, we announce the passing of Jacqueline "Jackie" Susan Smothers (Nee Gratton) of
Tweed, Ontario. Jackie passed peacefully in her home on Saturday November 21st surrounded with love, after a courageously fought battle with cancer.  Jackie is survived by the love of her life, Dennis Chapin, her beloved life partner of the last 34 years. She will be missed deeply by her loving children. Jackie's daughter Amy (Jeremy), and her son Tim and Grandchildren, will carry on holding memories close and living some of the lessons of love, strength and forgiveness she taught through example. Jackie was the beloved daughter of Lois and the late John Gratton (2004). Sometimes referred to lovingly as "the Princess", she was a dear sister and friend, sharing a special bond with each of her brothers and sisters. Jackie is survived by her siblings Gail, Pat(Al), John (Brenda), Jim, Jo-Anne (Les) and Jenny (Keith). Jackie will also be missed by many nieces and nephews, many friends, and so many more considered extended family.  Jackie (sometimes called Jake) was born in Brantford April 12th 1954. The number 54 followed her as a lucky sign through out her life. The Gratton family moved to Waterford a couple of years after Jackie was born, where she grew up and attended Waterford District High School. Jackie loved love and adventure and was blessed with lots of both during her lifetime. She has done everything from hitchhiking across the border, throwing Birthday parties for rock stars, starting and running a daycare, to retiring with her green thumbs to a hobby farm in the country where she canned from their extensive garden. Her favorite things in this world were her family, her friends and music. The only thing better than those things was a combination of them...and Toast Time. She loved to watch the sunset in exotic places and at home on her back porch with her furry friends. She loved palm trees, chocolate, lipstick, the colour red and to laugh. After being a vegetarian for most of her life, in the last months she discovered a love for hamburgers and bacon ketchup sandwiches.  She will be missed, but remembered by these things and so much more.  Forever in our hearts Cremation has already taken place. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date when we can gather safely.  In lieu of flowers a donation to a charity of your choice would be much appreciated.  Arrangements entrusted to the McConnell Funeral Home, Tweed.
