Jacqueline Matthews

January 31, 1940 — April 6, 2024

Sundridge

Jacqueline (Jackie) M. (Smith) Matthews (nee Bazinet) left her family reluctantly April 6, 2024 following a life fully lived. Jackie was a great traveller and occasionally enjoyed taking the scenic route, sometimes on purpose. She gave us many memories in so many ways; she gave us her time, her love, her homemade goods and a generous smile. There was always room for one more.

Predeceased by husband Bill Smith, parents Roland and Laurette (Poitras) Bazinet, son Dale, sister Claudette (Alexander) Geals, brother Guy and stepson Stephen. Survived by husband John E. Matthews, children Rolly (Candyce) and Sandy, stepdaughter Gail (Graeme) Perrow, grandchildren Rhys (Hannah), Foster, Ethan (Emma), Onyx, Ryan and Nicholas, great-grandchildren Stella and Winifred, brother Michel Bazinet (Lorraine Penzar), aunt Thérèse Poitras Jenkins and several aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews, all of the family meant so much to her. 

The family will receive visitors at the Opatovsky Funeral Home-Moore Chapel, 9 Paget Street in Sundridge on Friday April 26, 2024 from 10 to 11am. with a service following. Visitors are invited to come to the house afterwards.

We would like to thank the staff at the Sudbury HSN Northeast Cancer Centre, especially Dr. Gopalakrishnan and Taylor, North Bay Regional Health Centre, South River Paramedic station and the Dynacare lab in Burk's Falls for their outstanding support and care. 

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Sundridge Food Bank, Almaguin Highlands Community Living or a cause of the donor's choice.

Jacqueline (Jackie) M. (Smith) Matthews née Bazinet a quitté sa famille à contrecœur le 6 avril 2024, après une vie bien remplie. Jackie aimait voyager et prendre la route panoramique, parfois c’était conçu. Elle nous a laissé de nombreux souvenirs; elle nous a donné de son temps et du cœur, toujours avec un beau sourire. Il y avait toujours de la place pour un autre.
