Jacqueline McCarvell German passed away peacefully on March 11, 2023, while enveloped in love by her husband, children, and family at Waterbury Hospital in Waterbury, Connecticut. Jacqueline, fondly known to all who loved her as "Jackie," was born on November 14, 1964, to her mother Sandra Hughes Cher in Ayer, Massachusetts. Beloved wife of Bromley H. German.
Jackie worked as a registered nurse and was a natural caregiver. She gave comfort care to those on hospice, consoled those dealing with mental health distress, and aid to people in pain. However, above all else, her true life calling was motherhood. She cherished her children, Patrick and Bethany, with such depth that she glowed with pride at every moment she witnessed them. Jackie always had an "open door" policy, and through the years, she mothered her children's friends as gently as though they were her own.
She had an artistic spirit and mind, constantly thinking of the next way she could add beauty to her surroundings. She was a skilled painter and loved most to capture bluebirds, flowers, and nature in her paintings. An avid stained glass artist, she learned quickly and created complex and skilled pieces. She spread her love of art to her children, and taught both of them to follow in her footsteps and become glass artists of their own while she supported their ideas and shared her knowledge as they found their styles. She had a way of picking up any craft and instantly being exceptional at it with ease.
Jackie is survived by her husband Bromley H. German and her two deeply loved children, Patrick H. German and Bethany Holly German, whom were the lights of her life. Six siblings: Lawrence McCarvell, Kathleen McCarvell, Phillip McCarvell, Scott McCarvell, Donald Sheppard (wife Wendy), and Kimberly Cher Pasanio (husband Shane). Father in law David German, mother in law Marguerite German, sister in law Jennifer Kames and brother in law Jeffrey German. Nieces and nephews: Ashely, Amanda, Shawn, Samantha, Kelsey, Kevin, Deanna, Catera, Gabriel, Caleb, Skylar, Corbin, Michael and Marlena. As well as many close family friends. She was predeceased by her mother Sandy and nephew Jordan McCarvell.
Though she may have left this world in body, her spirit and beauty are surrounding us in every sunny day, every cool breeze, every wave lapping at the beachfront, and every bird and wildflower. She taught us all to believe in magic, and her energy will transcend to hold each of her loved ones for eternity.
A Celebration of Life Gathering is to be held in the spring, service dates to be announced.
