Jacqueline Grosso Schwalm, from Constantia NY, who was born on January 7th 1953, has passed away peacefully with both of her sons by her side on September 14th 2021. Jackie who was a (retired) supervisor for the Oswego post office and a postal employee for over 40 years was 68 years young when she passed of complications caused by Multiple System Atrophy (MSA)
Jackie had an extraordinary love for nature and animals of all kinds. This paired with her boundless knowledge of plants and flowers led to her nickname of "mother nature herself". Proven worthy of the title, Jackie was known to occasionally feed hummingbirds perched upon her finger. Though she was soft and gentle as a summer breeze, Jackie was also tough enough to raise two boys by herself. An independent mother who knew very well the meaning of "tough love". Yet her family was her whole world. Everything she did was to better the life of her boys Nicholas and Peter. She was always active in their school and extra curricular activities. Jackie's gentle soul touched the lives of many of their friends. Most of them called her mom as she always welcomed them into her home. (Some stayed for days at a time.) She often joked about "always feeding the whole neighborhood". As her boys grew up and had children of their own, her grandchildren inherited the the same love. Jaxon, Caroline and Gracelynn were only blessed with Jackie's love for a short while but there's no doubt she will be their guardian angel till the end of time. Her love and kindness graced many others on her journey through life. Her friends, relatives, co-workers, strangers and even animals know all too well how kind hearted she was. Her smile and laughter were contagious to everyone she encountered. Jackie will be missed by many and her loving memory will forever be in our hearts. May her soul rest in peace as she returns home amongst the stars.
Calling Hours will be held on Thursday, September 23, 2021, from 2 pm to 4 pm, at Traub Funeral Home in Central Square followed by a gathering at Nick’s house, 168 Auringer Road in Constantia. There will be a private burial in Constantia Rural Cemetery.
