Sue Syers Obituary, Death – After a protracted battle with sickness, Munising resident Jacqueline “Jackie” Sue Snell (née Syers), age 40, passed away unexpectedly at her home on Saturday, March 31, 2018. Her birthday is July 9th, and she was born in Newport, Washington, in 1977. Her family had moved to Munising when she was a young child, and it was there that she grew up and received her education. In high school, Jackie was an avid participant in both bowling and track & field sprinting events. Camping, fishing, and swimming were some of her favorite pastimes. It didn’t matter that she was supposed to be a bridesmaid at her daughter’s wedding; that didn’t stop her from diving off the Paradise cliffs and swimming in Lake Superior. Jackie cherished her children and grandkids and would go out of her way to help care for them.
However, they were aware that they shouldn’t trouble her in the morning before she had her first cup of coffee. She was an avid clothes collector who never passed up the opportunity to purchase a quality sweater, and she also collected butterflies to use as wall art in her house. Jackie had a deep affection for all kinds of creatures, and she always made sure they were cared for and had a comfortable home. She once nursed back to health a fox and a snapping turtle that had been injured. Jackie was able to find peace in her life by forgiving others and showing concern for them.
