Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Jacqueline Joyce Ward, 60, of Peachtree Corners, GA passed away on December 20, 2018.
Jackie, or J.J. as she was referred to by family, was born October 18, 1958 in Montclair, New Jersey. Jackie was bold and influential; she will be remembered by her sharp intellect, endless thirst for knowledge, and seemingly infinite willingness to help family and friends. Jackie was a respected professional whose career produced both professional accomplishments and decade long personal friendships. Great food and spirits were always available when in her company. In addition to a love of traveling and world exploration, she enjoyed playing solitaire, hosting action movie marathons, reading medical journals, and rewatching classic TV shows in her spare time.
Jackie is survived by her daughter Erika Ward and granddaughter Raya Ward; sister Donna Hazell; nieces Michelle Thornton, Brittani Hazell, and Kali Hazell; nephew Douglas Hazell, Jr; as well has her extended family. Jackie surrounded herself by a very close circle of friends who can best be described as her soul mates: Suzanne Channel Wright and Bill Wright, Beth Hellmann, Kathleen Fuell, Helen Burtis, and Geoff Cestaro.
Friends and family will host a celebration of life gathering to be held 3:30PM to 6:00PM on Saturday, January 12, 2019 at Kaleidoscope Bistro & Pub, 1410 Dresden Dr #100, Atlanta, GA 30319.
