Jacqueline "Jackie" Cherie Massie

January 18, 1964 - September 30, 2016

Beloved daughter, niece, sister, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend.
Jackie was born in La Mirada, California on January 18th, 1964 to Daniel and Gloria Fiedler. After moving to Oregon, she went on to graduate from Sprague High School, Salem. She married Earl Massie and had two boys, Steven and Brian Massie.
She enjoyed doing several crafts but cross-stitching and cake decorating were her passions. But once her granddaughter, Jordan, was born to Steven and Stephanie Massie, she was her new passion.
Jackie was truly a loving, caring individual and was the definition of giving. She gave even when she didn't have anything to give but stayed humble, never complaining.
She passed away after a strong battle with breast cancer in Salem, Oregon on September 30th, 2016. Jackie never gave up.
Survived by her parents, Daniel and Gloria Fiedler; sons, Steven Massie and wife Stephanie and Brian; beloved granddaughter, Jordan; brother, Daniel Fiedler Jr and wife Teresa; sister, Christine Sims; nieces, Alex and Angela Fiedler; nephews, Josh and Daniel Fiedler, Kyle Willis; ex-husband, Earl Massie; as well as many other aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Jackie, I am so grateful that I was able to spend some time with you last week. I loved that Jordan climbed into bed with you and told you she loved you. You were such a strong fighter. Jordan is lucky to have had 5 years of her life with you. My heart is sadden for your family as they will miss you and think of you often. I pray for their comfort in knowing you are at peace and no longer in pain. I know you will be watching Jordan as she grows and every time she finds a rainbow it will be you smiling down on her. Rest in peace dear Jackie.
Jordan..... this is for you!

I would walk into your room and see you smile,

I walked over and hugged you all the time, 

You always made me smile,

You were so strong,

You weren’t just my Grandma

You were my best friend

I know you had to go,

But I know you’re close.

When I feel warmth at night I know it’s you giving me a kiss goodnight,

When I feel wind brush through my hair,

I know your whispering to me because you care

When I see the sun shine I know your happy all the time

When I find a rainbow I will feel you are smiling down at me,

Grandma, I always wonder where you kept your wings,

Did you hang them in your closet with the rest of your things?

Did you put them away, out of my sight?

Or did you give them to Rosie to polish up bright?

I know you have wings, for this must be true,

Because God always gives them to Angels just like you!

We are so sorry for your loss.  Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

Mark and Tina Wahlund

To Jackie you were a strong woman. You will be missed by so many. May you now rest in peace. To Steven, Stephanie, Jordan, and Brian I am so sorry for you loss. But remember she will always be looking down from heaven keeping an eye on you. Aunt Rosie

Jackie, I never thought I would be writing this to you to say my final good byes, you passed away to soon in life. We were to take a vacation next summer when I came out and travel down the beach, see the sights and have a lot of fun memories together. I have lost my best friend way to soon in life. I miss you already in the short time you have been gone. I picked up the phone today and accidentally dialed you number. Your voice mail came on and I started crying hearing your voice and realizing you were here no more. I called you a lot when you were in the hospital and care home. I tried to come up with stupid things to say to make you laugh and take your mind sometimes off your pain and situation you were in. I always liked calling you up and saying this is your harassment call for the day, they tried to block this call but it was over rode and they were made to do it anyway. Stupid I know but it got a laugh out of you and that was all that mattered. Truly good friends are hard to come by. You were a really good friend. You always listened to me when I needed someone to talk to, had problems that I needed help with and was there without judgement of any kind. That kind of friendship is hard to come by. I hope thru the years I was there for you to. I always tried to be. I am glad you now are at peace and in heaven where you belong. I could go on and on with this writing but it does not change that you are now gone. I will treasure the fun times we had going to the movies, shopping, working at dmv together, beach trips and other fun things we did. You may be gone but the memories will stay. See you someday in heaven. Till then I end this good bye for now with treasured memories of a friendship that will last forever and tears that will last for a long time. Your best friend Cynthia Foltz 10/5/2016
