Jacqueline (Jackie) Anne Hiebert

November 20, 2020 6 Condolences Print Obituary

Jackie Anne Hiebert, age 59, passed away peacefully on the morning of November 18, 2020 after a long and brave battle with lung cancer.  She was surrounded by her loving family.  Jackie  was courageous, humorous and strong until the end, inspiring the same courage in us all.

Jackie Hiebert lived her life well.  She was thoughtful, kind, deeply loyal, protective and made all the people that she loved feel very special.  Jackie was determined to be happy, choosing to focus on what was uplifting and lighthearted.  She inspired her family and friends to be happy along with her.  Jackie was the first one to mix a good drink, turn on some music and get everyone dancing.  She had a great sense of humor, a sharp wit and such a wonderful laugh.

Jackie also had a great deal of integrity and lived her values.  She was hardworking, committed to fairness and a smart businesswoman.  She and her husband Wes built a successful business-Climate Control Reefer Service- from the ground up.  They took an early retirement to enjoy their success and spend the rest of their lives having "all the good times" together.  She and Wes enjoyed the perfect life, living between Edmonton and Palm Springs, building a close circle of cherished friends down South.

Jackie is survived by her admiring husband, best friend and partner in crime, Wes Hiebert; her son Brian (Amber); step-daughter Jamie (James); grand-daughters Destiny and Kendra; step-son Jared; grand-sons Jacob and Josh; brother Rob (Donna); nephews Tyler and Tanner and niece Talia.  She was predeceased by her mother Betty Stanhope-Cole and her father Gordon Cole.

A party honoring Jackie's best life will take place in the spring, in response to COVID-19.  Friends and family will be notified at that time.

The family is requesting that donations be made to the Edmonton Humane Society in lieu of flowers.  Jackie was a generous supporter of the Edmonton Humane Society, reflective of her care and appreciation for animals, her favorite of which was the African elephant.

  1. There are no words to bring comfort but hope the caring thoughts of other will help. Wes, you and Jackie were fortunate to have many years of total friendship and partners in marriage. I know you have many wonderful memories of building a successful business, embracing the “Snow Bird ” life and even more precious memories built with your families here at home.

    To all the family, I wish you courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to hold in your heart….treasure them. Maxine Cole

  2. Jamie, James, Destiny and Kendra.

    Please accept our deepest sympathies on the passing of your beloved mom and grandmother. We pray that im time your cherished memories will replace the pain and sorrow you feel now. Take comfort in the knowledge that she is no longer suffering and is looking down on all of you with love.

  3. Deep condolences to Wes, Brian, Rob and family for the loss of Jackie. Jackie’s strength and courage in fighting is admirable, and it could not have happened without the support of her family. I wish you all the strength and love you need this first holiday season without her. Lots of love Dean Imbeau and family.

  4. Deepest condolences,
    Jackie’s smile and laugh I will always remember. She was a great neighbour growing up and me and my brothers baby sitter.

  5. My deepest condolences to Wes, his family and friends.
    Jackie was a clever,generous, honest friend. She was funny, adventurous and pretty much would agree to doing just about anything if it sounded good to her. We shared some really fun times in Palm Springs for many years.
    She was very strong and brave and lived her life on her terms.
    I admire her greatly and will miss her a lot.

  6. My heart goes out to you all. My prayers for Jackie and her family.
