    I was so fortunate to have Jackie, and the entire Belyan family, in my life. Seeing Jackie and Ronnie hold my children was one of the happiest moments of my life. Jackie, I will forever love and miss you and that laugh of yours. I will miss the pancake sleepovers and the polkas at International Village. Thank you for always looking after me and my family. You are already missed.

    Ronnie and Michelle,
    My heart is broken hearing of Jackie’s passing. It is an honor that your parents are my Godparents and I am grateful for all the family memories we have shared. As a kid, our weekends were always so fun playing cards and getting together. I have missed all of you thru these years since you have moved out west. If only we could turn back time. Never forget our great nicknames for Jackie…”Bubb Yakkie”, “Sparkles” and “Moonbeam” She was a wonderful lady, loved and missed. Please give Ronnie “Smooth” a hug for me. Jackie is now in Heaven with Aunt Mary, Uncle John and I am sure Teta was waiting for her.

    Our hearts are saddened by the passing of Aunt Jackie. She was a great woman. I remember being the flower girl in her and Uncle Ronnie’s wedding when I was only five years old. We also have so many good memories of all of us getting together for coffee, donuts, and game nights at our house, plus we can’t forget all the family parties where Aunt Jackie made her great potato salad, but would go out of her way to make me my own potato salad with no eggs. She was the best!!
    Rest in peace Aunt Jackie until we meet again. We will truly be lost without you, and hearing you say, “everything ‘s going to be ok!” So Uncle Ron, Ronnie, and Michelle, in your own Mother’s words, “everything ‘s going to be ok” We wish all of you peace and solace in the days ahead..

    We loved you so much Aunt Jackie, and ask for your prayers for us here. You will truly be missed .
    Love, Donnie and Karen Cicco

    So sorry for your loss. Sincere sympathy to you all. She was a wonderful lady.

    I am so sorry to hear of Jackie’s passing. I will miss seeing her in the halls of Millard Senior Residence whenever I was visiting my own mother. She always had a witty response and a ready smile. She will be sorely missed.
