Jacqueline "Jackie" Anne McMurray BoltzDecember 27, 1935 ~ October 26, 2017 (age 81)
Jacqueline Anne McMurray Boltz died October 26, 2017 following a short illness. She was born December 27, 1935 to Ray and Mary (McCoy) McMurray. Following her graduation from Tooele High School in 1954, she attended Holy Cross Hospital of nursing on a full ride scholarship, graduating in 1957. After a short stay in Long Beach California Jackie returned to Tooele and was hired at the Tooele Hospital where she worked until she retired. She married Gary Edward Boltz in 1960. Jackie is survived by children Bridgette Gehring and Patrick (Kathy) Boltz. Grandchildren Jeramy, Sara (Jason), Kimi (Gabe), and Shawn. Sister Dottie Cerroni, and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her mother and father, her husband Gary, and sisters MaryRae, Judy, and Suzie.
Jackie's passion for nursing was only seconded by her love of camping with family and friends, fishing, and taking her grandchildren overnight for fun, cartoons, and Happy meals. She enjoyed using her computer for keeping track of everything. Her granddaughter Sara followed in her footsteps and is now an RN, an accomplishment Jackie was especially proud of. Jeramy also spent many Sundays having dinner with “Grams”.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to Joe and Ida Bittman, friends and next door neighbors of Jackie who always kept a special watch out for Jackie. Also to Jeffery Martinez who made sure the snow was always removed so Jackie could get her car out and remain independent in the wintertime.
Funeral Mass will be celebrated Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at St. Marguerites in Tooele at 11:30 am. Friends may call at 11 am, with private family viewing from 10:30 am to 11 am. A luncheon will follow the services and all are welcome.
