Jacqueline Marie Masi, of Marco Island, died at home in her sleep Aug. 18, 2006 after a long bout with spinal cancer.
She is survived by her loving husband of 25 years, Peter Masi. She was the light of his life. She is also survived by her sisters — Pauline Fogelsanger of State College, Penn., Kathleen Chojnowski Freeman of Massachusetts, Nancy Ryan of Huntington, N.Y., and Caroline Polanish of Blue Point, N.Y. — and mother, Anna Chojnowski of Blue Point, N.Y.
Masi was born April 10, 1955. She was homecoming queen, one of God's most beautiful creations, a friend to one and all.
She dedicated her life to the one profession she thought was most important, being a teacher. She taught at Farmingdale High School for 16 years before being granted permanent disability.
She retired to Marco Island in 1991, where she and her husband started Masi West Coast Pest Control. While living on Marco Island, Jackie was active in the Lions Club and co-chair of the sight committee. She left the gift of sight behind.
She will be missed by all who came into her life. She was the kind of human being who possessed boundless love for all people and all of God's creatures.
Mass will be held in her name at San Marco Catholic Church, Marco Island, on Tuesday at 10:00 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the American Cancer Society, Marco Island Chapter.
