Jacqueline A. Wolfe, 81, was born on January 31, 1936 in Washington, D.C. Jackie entered into eternal life on August 7, 2017, following a life marked by unwavering faith and service to others.

In 1953, Jackie moved to West Palm Beach where she met and married the love of her life, Jan A. Wolfe Sr., in 1954. Jackie and Jan raised their three children: Jan Jr., Myrna, and Wendy in West Palm Beach. Jackie was a devoted teaching assistant at West Gate Elementary School, serving and loving the children and families of the Westgate community for 47 years. She retired in June 2016.

Jackie was committed to serving the church and was an active member of First Lutheran \Cchurch in West Palm Beach for 32 years, and St. Michael's Lutheran church in Wellington for 25 years. She was a leader and steward of the Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (WELCA) ministry for over 20 years. In this role, Jackie helped meet the physical and spiritual needs of generations of women. Jackie's faith, family, and friends were her true passions, and she generously shared her radiant joy with those lucky enough to know her. Her kindness, sharp wit, and contagious smile were just a few of the many qualities that endeared her to so many. The most selfless and compassionate person you could ever know with the most unexpectedly sassy sense of humor-there is no one else like her. Jackie's steadfast devotion to her faith was truly inspiring and made her a "Godmother" to so many in the church and beyond. Above all, she was far too humble to ever see the remarkable impact she made on this world, but it is self-evident in the hearts and lives of her family and loved ones. Jackie would ask us to remember the many laughs we shared with her and celebrate that she is now with the One who loved her most and called her home to be with Him.

Jackie was preceded in death by her husband Jan Wolfe Sr. (1985), daughter Myrna Wolfe (2003), and brother Tommy Nichols (2005).
She is survived by brother Donnie Nichols and sister-in-law Mary, and son Jan Wolfe Jr., daughter Wendy Wolfe, and son-in-law Greg Madsen, and grandchildren Trae Wolfe and wife Stephani, Lexi Wolfe, Jannsen Wolfe, and great-grandson Maximus "Max" Wolfe.

A visitation will be held on Friday, August 11 at 5:00PM at Quattlebaum Funeral Center at 5411 Okeechobee Blvd, West Palm Beach, Fl 33417. Jackie's "Gone to Heaven" service will be held on Saturday, August 12 at 10:00AM at St. Michael's Lutheran Church at 1925 Birkdale Dr, Wellington, FL 33414 with a reception following the service.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her honor to St. Michael's Lutheran Church.
