Summers at the camp on Lake Agnew were always buzzing with family and friends. Those days were full of sun and fun with the nights filled with music and dancing by the campfire. Jacquie was an accomplished musician and played under the stage name “Jacquie Rose” back in her day. Her bluegrass band "Curly Carter and the Mountaineers" gave Canadian country star Smiley Bates his start. She was also an accomplished artist painting beautiful landscapes and realistic portraits of her family and friends. Survivor of cancer twice, giving her a new lease on life, she spent more than two decades traveling across North America with her husband in their motorhome. They also spent many great winters with friends and family at their Florida home. Jacquie lived a full and meaningful life and will leave behind cherished memories with all who crossed her path.
