January 10, 1922 – December 8, 2019

On the morning of Dec. 8, 2019, Barbara L. Jack (née Rooney) left her life on Earth, with her family by her side, one month short of her 98th birthday. She had been a resident of Saint Brigid’s Home since 2010.
She was predeceased by her husband Doug in 1972, her sons John in 1966 and Russel in 2007, as well as many beloved but long-lived pets.
She leaves to mourn her loss her son Robert, daughter-in-law Barb, and her two precious grandchildren, David (Richelle Cansdale) and Kerrie (Raza Zaheer).
Barbara, known also as “Bob” and “Bobbie” to her close family, was a lifetime resident of Quebec City, well known over the years for her deep love of all of God’s creatures. She was regularly seen driving in her car with her dogs around Sillery or walking with them down Maguire Avenue.
Her family would like to express their extreme gratitude to her caregivers at Saint Brigid’s, including Kathleen Dery, Amanda, Marjorie, Timnit and Cathy Neville, as well as Dr. Martineau. In addition, we would like to express our sincere thanks to her niece Kathy Baran and her great-niece Christine Bilodeau for their kindness and love toward Mom over many years.
Funeral services will be held in the summer with interment in Mount Hermon Cemetery. An announcement will follow closer to that time.
