CHARLTON – Jacquelyn “Jacquie” (Beckwith) Signore, 84, passed away peacefully May 28, 2020 at The Overlook Post Acute Unit, Charlton, MA where she received wonderful loving care from the staff and hospice.
She was predeceased by her high school sweetheart and husband of 54 years, Joseph A. Signore (2008); and her significant other of 5 years, Bill Goss (2018). She is survived by her 3 daughters and their husbands, Beth and Guy Allard of Wallingford, CT, Kim and Rafe Torres of North Brookfield, MA, and Sue and Bill Hilliard of Jacksonville, FL. She also leaves 7 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.
Jacquie grew up in West Haven CT. Upon graduating from high school she enrolled in Hartford Hospital School of Nursing. She married Joe soon after. As his career took off, they found themselves moving quite often. She became an expert in dealing with new schools, doctors, and moving companies all while raising three daughters. Eventually they retired to Chatham, MA where they enjoyed many happy years. Even after moving to The Overlook in 2014, she still carried a piece of the Cape in her heart.
She had many friends at The Overlook. Her sense of humor and quick wit made her a pleasure to be around. She was very independent and enjoyed helping others when she could. She was an avid reader, liked jigsaw and crossword puzzles, knitting, needlepoint, drawing, genealogy, and her nightly wine. Besides being a DAR member, a PEO member, and treasurer of The Brew Crew at The Overlook, she was involved in many clubs and committees during her years there.
She leaves behind her loving family and many good friends who will miss her very much. Please raise a glass of fine wine in her honor.
As per her wishes, there will be no memorial services. If anyone would like to do something in her memory, please donate to The Overlook’s Employee Appreciation Fund.
Paradis-Givner Funeral Home in Oxford is directing the arrangements.
