Friends and family of Jackie Dupras will gather this Sunday (October 7), 1-3 pm, at The Hall at Fauntleroy for what her husband Ed Dupras describes as “a wake” in her memory. Jackie – who had been diagnosed with dementia – was missing for two weeks before her body was found last weekend on a greenbelt slope in South Alki. She was long active in the community, especially with the 34th District Democrats, for whom she served as the longtime newsletter editor; the group honored her with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011. Ed Dupras says the event will be informal – open microphone if there are memories you want to share, but no official program. No flowers – he says “the guest of honor” wouldn’t have wanted them. The Hall at Fauntleroy is at 9131 California SW.
