<div itemprop="description">Vera Mary Jacques (nee Whiting) 11 July 1928 &ndash; 15 April 2016.<br />The Jacques Family is sad to announce the passing of Vera Mary Jacques (nee Whiting) . She was the only child of Violet (nee Makepeace) and Frederick (Ricky) Whiting of Buckingham, Buckinghamshire, England. <br />During World War ll, she met the love of her life, Peter (Petrus) Jacques, who was stationed at Finmere Aerodrome. They met at the Town Hall in Buckingham during a dance, and soon became enamoured with each other. They were married on 19 March 1946. Happily, on 19 March 2016, they celebrated their 70th Wedding Anniversary.<br />After Peter finished his education, and they had their family, they decided that opportunities were better in the colonies, so they decided to emigrate to Canada. Peter blazed the trail, leaving in 1957, and Vera looked after the family, following with them in 1958, to settle in Ottawa.<br />Here they raised their children, Graham and Tina, and began to enjoy the finer things in life. They enjoyed camping with the children, then developed a love for the cruising life.<br />Unfortunately, in her later years, Vera began to suffer from ill health. She was unable to live at home, and had to move into a nursing home, initially West End Villa, then she moved into Carleton Lodge. Peter was able to join her at Carleton Lodge for the last few years of her life, and she enjoyed being perambulated around in her wheelchair by her ever attentive Peter.<br />She was predeceased by her first son, France, in 1947, and is survived by Peter, and her children Graham(Judy) and Tina(Terry), as well as her grandchildren, Allison, Andrew, Melissa and Michelle, and great grandchildren Rebecca, Henry, Grace and Morgen.<br />Friends and family are invited to a Celebration of her life to be held on Wednesday, April 20 from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 the Carleton A &amp; B Suites of<br />Capital Funeral Home &amp; Cemetery<br />3700 Prince of Wales Drive<br />613-692-1211<br /></div>
