March 5, 1946 - August 16, 2019

Jacqueline ‘Jackie’ B. Libett, age 73 of West Bloomfield passed away August 16, 2019 at her home surrounded by her loving family.

Jackie was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada to David and Rose Watt. She graduated from Barton High School and, at the age of 20, married her high school sweetheart, Nick Libett. The two bounced from home to home; Memphis to San Diego and Ft. Worth, finally settling in West Bloomfield, MI in 1968. Once settled, Jackie was blessed by becoming a mother. She was an amazing nurturer, always attending school trips and functions and baking treats for her children to share at school.

Jackie was driven and creative. When her children were older, she went onto dedicate 27 years as a paraprofessional at Lahser High School. After retirement, she was able to enjoy her grandchildren and was affectionately known as ‘G-ma’.

Jackie enjoyed taking trips to participate in different cultures, experiencing Hong Kong and touring museums and different landmarks. She had a kind soul, volunteering for Meals on Wheels for 10 years and was once the head of the Educational Foundation in Detroit. Jackie was a lover of all animals and pugs were her well-known favorite. She was unselfish and always put other’s needs before her own. Jackie was a devoted wife, mother, g-ma, sister and friend. She will be missed immensely.
