Jacqueline Marie Shaner, nee Ward, age 56, passed away peacefully and went home to be with the Lord on April 26, 2022. Jackie was born in Wilmington, DE on September 22, 1965.
Jackie is survived by her daughter, Britany (Brian) Kimble; her son, James Shaner; and grandson, Brayden Shaner. She is also survived by her siblings, Mary Powell, Margie (Robin) Marsilii, Geralyn Long, Eileen Pfeil, Tricia (Bill) McCole; and many loving nieces and nephews.
Jackie was predeceased by her parents, James and Helen Ward; her siblings, Kathleen Leach, James Ward and William Ward.
Jackie was a longtime resident of Claymont, DE and a graduate of Claymont High School and Delaware Technical Community College for Radiology. Jackie had too many hobbies to list, but the most important study to her was the Bible. She had a drive and a thirst not to just understand the King James Version but also non-canonical writings. Many of her proudest moments were spent with her grandson, Brayden.
