Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Our beloved Mother, Grandmother and dear friend Jackie Wagner Slattery, age 78, of the former Panama Canal Zone peacefully departed this world Thursday, February 10, 2022, in Atlanta, Georgia. We graciously thank Hospice Organization for their kindness and care from their Palliative Care Group at Seasons Hospice in Cumming, Georgia.
Jackie was born November 8, 1943, in Coco Solo Hospital, Colon, Panama to her parents, Marguerite Pate Ashton (Florida) and Nathan Ashton (Maine). Jackie spoke fondly of her memories of growing up at 1541-B Mango Street, Balboa, C.Z. She is a graduate of Balboa High School Class of 1961. Her friends will remember her for her beautiful smile, adventuresome attitude, honesty, and integrity.
Jackie’s career was primarily as a civilian Security Specialist for the U.S. Army, the position from which she retired after thirty years of service having received many commendations for her high job performance and substantial contributions.
Jackie is preceded in death by her former husband, John Young Wagner (1988) and most recently by her dutiful husband, Carl Slattery (2021), and her brother, Warren Ashton.
Jackie is survived by her two sons, John William Wagner (Jodi Lynn Godby Wagner) of Boca Raton, FL, and James Warren Wagner (Rhonda Baker Wagner) of Johns Creek, GA; and grandchildren, Jaye Lynn Wagner, Ashton Wagner, and Grant Wagner.
A Memorial Service will be privately held with family members and her ashes will be shared as per her wishes in some of her favorite places in her beautiful Panama.
