On June 23, 2021 we lost our beautiful, feisty little redhead, Jacquelyn Mary Wright. Jacquelyn was born in England on June 16, 1931. She lived there with her parents John & Mary Wile and her siblings, Robert & Vivianne.
She met her husband, Gordon Snelling in the late 40's and together and they had two daughters, Susan born February 12, 1951 and Janis born in 1955. In 1959 they decided to come to the "New World"!!
We boarded our ship and sailed away. We eventually settled in Costa Mesa, Ca and they went on to have a son, Jonathan Snelling. They bought their first home and lived there
all their married lives. Our Dad was a Plastering Contractor and our Mom was a Purchasing Agent for the Perkin Elmer Corporation. Jacquelyn was a hard-working, intelligent woman and loved her job. She gave it her all and her co-workers
enjoyed working with her. After retiring in the late 80's, she moved out to Indian Wells and enjoyed her Retirement to the fullest! She became a world traveler and loved every minute of it and saw much of the world.
Eventually, she moved to Sun Lakes and began her new chapter! She enjoyed living there and she loved all the new friends she made!! Thank you to all the lovely ladies for helping make our Mom's last few years extra wonderful!
Thank you to Susan for being there, especially during this most trying and difficult year, they had a lot of fun shopping and enjoying life!
Jacquelyn will be best remembered as our loving Mother, always there for her children, no matter what. She was a giver and found joy in everything she did. Just recently, at her 90th surprise party, she was asked by a friend, what is your secret?
Her very English response was "Well darling, I try to not drink a lot of water!!"
Her greatest joy were her Grandchildren; Melissa Leigh Dippel Kenyon, Michael Scott Dippel, and Jeffrey Richard Dippel, she loved them with her entire being. She supported them in
all endeavors, she was there for every milestone and was their biggest fan!! Her Great Grandchildren were also her pride and joy, she so enjoyed hearing about all their escapades and loved spending time with all of them.
We will love you forever, Mummy, Grandma and Favorite Mother-in law!! Your positivity, love, joy and zest for life is the living legacy you left behind, your family will cherish those memories forever.
Cheers to you, Mother Dear & give Goldie a kiss from us!! xoxoxo
