Jacqueline W. Mason, “Jackie,” 92, of Jefferson and Falmouth, went to be with her Lord on Nov. 24, surrounded by her loving family. She was born June 8, 1926 to parents Marcus A. and Edna Wolff in Newark, N.J. She was a graduate of Glen Ridge, N.J. High School.
Jackie was passionate about her faith and love of her Lord. Her life was an example of one of her favorite Bible verses Philippians 1:21, “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” After 42 years, she is reunited with her husband and love of her life, Papa Joe. The Lord was her strength after He took her husband, Joe, home to glory. Christ gave her courage and wisdom as she continued to raise her large family.
She was predeceased by loving husband, Joseph Mason Jr.; parents, Marcus and Edna Wolff; and brother, Marcus A. Wolff III.
Jackie is survived by brothers and their wives, Dr. Bruce R. Wolff and Gayle of Greenville, Penn., and Wallace Wolff and Karin of Westminster, Md.; and children, Edna and husband Dan Scott of Eddington, Glenn Mason of Simsbury, Conn., Carol Bartlett and husband Paul of South Portland, Dr. Joseph Mason and wife Debbie of Verona, N.J., Doug Mason and wife Kelley of Cumberland, and David Mason and wife Heidi of Farmington, Conn. Jackie was blessed with 16 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren. Jackie’s passion was being “Nana” to her 33 grandchildren and great grandchildren, a job that kept her and the post office very busy, never missing a birthday card. Nana was an incredible blessing to her grandchildren as she was continually praying for them and their walk with the Lord.
