Obituary

Obituary for Jacqueline Marie Donnelly

Jacqueline M. Donnelly, 86, of Windsor Locks, beloved wife of the late John “Jack” A. Donnelly, Jr., passed away on Monday, August 5, 2019 at St. Francis Hospital surrounded by family. Born in Willimansett, MA on February 11, 1933, she was the daughter of the late Leo and Blanche (Paul) Delude and grew up in Willimansett and Chicopee Falls before moving to Windsor Locks. She worked for Hamilton Standard, the Bradley Airport duty-free shop, wrote a column for the Windsor Locks local paper for many years, and retired from Dr. Richard Colo’s optometrist’s office as the office manager, a job she loved and held for decades. Jackie and Jack were long time and active communicants of St. Mary Church. Her children fondly remember her as the kindest person they’ve ever known. She had a calming presence about her and made everyone feel like they were special and loved. She was a voracious reader, an avid gardener, a UCONN Women’s and Men’s Basketball fan, and a great cook. All of her hobbies and interests were summed up in her love of people. She had a special gift of hospitality wherever she went. A beautiful spirit has touched this world in a profound way and life is better because Jacqueline was a part of our lives. She is lovingly remembered by her 5 children, Susan McNally, John A. Donnelly, III, Kathleen Donnelly, Thomas Donnelly, and Carole Donnelly; her devoted grandson, Ryan McNally; and her 2 siblings, Louise and Harry Delude. Besides her husband Jack, who predeceased her in 2011, she was predeceased by her step-mother, Agnes Delude; her brother, Paul Delude; her son-in-law, Chris McNally; and her grandson, Chris McNally, Jr. Her family will receive friends on Sunday, August 11, from 2-5 PM at the Windsor Locks Funeral Home, 441 Spring St., Windsor Locks. Her Funeral will take place on Monday, August 12 beginning at 9 AM at the funeral home with a procession to St. Mary Church for a 10 AM Mass of Christian Burial. Burial will follow in St. Mary’s Cemetery. For online condolences, please visit www.windsorlocksfuneralhome.com.
