Friends may call from 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday, March 19, 2012, at the Michael G. Angiolillo Funeral Home, 210 Broadway, Whitehall, N.Y.  Burial will be private and at the convenience of the family in Greenmount Cemetery, Whitehall, with the Rev. Michael Flannery, pastor of Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church of Whitehall, officiating.

The family suggests that memorial contributions be made in Jackie’s memory to the American Legion Post No. 83, 148 Main St., Whitehall, NY 12887

The family would like to thank the staff of Rutland Regional Medical Center for their compassionate care of Jackie.
