With heavy hearts we announce that Jackie passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital on Tuesday evening, December 11, 2018. Jacqueline Michelle “Jackie” Wantang of Arnprior, aged 45. Beloved wife of Felix. Adored mother of Kathleen “Kassi” Papadopoulos (Andrew), Haley Doan, Mia Doan, Matthew Wantang (10), Chioma Wantang (9) and Amarachi Wantang (8). Cherished Gramma of Elisia and Lincoln. Dearly loved sister of Bill Chivers (Tammy), Denise Chivers (Hon Lee) and Kathryn Boeyen (Chris). Daughter of the late Bill and Myriam (nee Landry) Chivers. Special and forever loved aunt of Samantha, Danielle, Olivia, William, Alyson and Kaitlyn. Also survived by many amazing friends and acquaintances whose lives were made brighter for knowing Jackie. As newcomers to Arnprior, Jackie, Felix and the kids have made great efforts to become involved in our community. The family opened a new business recently, JFJ Canada on McGonigal Street West. The support they have received so far has been matched by the open arm acceptance that local residents have extended to the Wantang family. Jackie embraced the efforts of TAP (Teachers Against Poverty) where she worked tirelessly to assist in fundraising efforts to help the less privileged. She was loved by all who knew her. Family and friends were invited to a Funeral Mass celebrated in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 18 Dochart Street, Braeside on Saturday afternoon, December 15th at 1:30. A luncheon and reception followed in the parish hall. In memory of Jackie and to assist her young family in this difficult time, please consider “Wantang/Chivers Go Fund Me”.
