Obituary of Jacqueline Rae McChesney

Jacqueline Rae McChesney (Varline), 64, of Niagara Falls, Ontario, passed away on October 4, 2021 after a long battle with COPD in Greater Niagara General Hospital.
Jaci was born on November 13, 1956 to Frank and Wanda (Anderson) Varline in Oklahoma.
She was a wonderful mother and fantastic grandmother and was always supportive to family through their passions and difficulties of their lives.
Christmases will never be the same without her around as it was her favourite time of year. Jaci was always the first to put decorations up and the last to take them down and she was sure to spread joy to those around her.
Jaci was an avid gardener, had a passion for reading, a love for country music and had been active in the community with girls softball for many years. We will miss her greatly.
Mourning her loss are her husband Shawn McChesney, children, Jon D. Brumbalow, Brandon Mehring and Kaitlyn McChesney, Grandchildren Breanna Brumbalow, Adriana Hightower (Brumbalow), Kaiden McChesney, Leo, Oliver and Delilah Mehring, and brother Steve Varline, as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
She was predeceased by her parents Frank and Wanda as well as her son David Scott Buffkin. Arrangements have been entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905) 354 2133. If desired, donations in memory of Jaci may be made to either Niagara SPCA Humane Society or COPD Foundation.
