Remembering Jackie Dupras: West Seattle wake this Sunday

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.

    I remember her from the caucuses. Great strong lady! I know a lot of people will miss her and remember what she brought to them on this home we call Earth.

    To Ed, Sarah, and Teddy, your wife and mother was a truly remarkable and unique individual. She walked her talk with enthusiasm and passion. I admired her conviction to her causes. She was a role model for anyone desiring to get involved in the political process. Her energy and passion for life will be surely missed. May you all find solace and peace at the conclusion of her remarkable life. John
