Obituary for Jacqueline Marie Nissi

Jacqueline Marie (Peck) Nissi, 87, of Haverhill MA, passed away Saturday morning, April 22, at the Merrimack Valley Hospice House surrounded by the love of her family.

Jackie was born March 6, 1930 in Newton, Massachusetts to the late Ruth A. (Fitzpatrick) and Earl T. Peck. Jacqueline graduated from St. James High School in 1947 and earned her registered nursing degree in 1950 from St. John’s School of Nursing in Lowell. She was united in marriage to Nordo M. Nissi, Jr. on October 6, 1951. He preceded her in death on June 26, 2004. They were married for 52 blissful years.

Jackie worked as a registered nurse for more than 30 years. Her most memorable job was working on H5 at Lawrence General Hospital where she cherished her time as a caregiver and made many lifelong friends. During her free time she enjoyed cooking, arts and crafts, and spending time with her family and friends.

Jackie was a truly kind and giving person who gave tirelessly of herself to everyone and anyone in need. She found great joy in doing for others and could be found delivering communion to homebound parishioners, cleaning the sanctuary of her beloved Sacred Hearts Church, or manning the Saint Vincent DePaul’s food pantry. Her stature was small, but her heart was huge!

Jackie is survived by sister Patricia Wicks of Haverhill, MA as well as her six children and their spouses; Carolanne Nissi-Jordan and her husband Jerry of Berlin, NH, Mary Theresa Hansen and her husband Eric of Stafford, VA, Nordo Nissi III and his wife Jane of Groton, MA, Richard G. Nissi and his wife Priscilla of Duxbury, MA, Joseph M. Nissi and his wife Carrie of Bradford, MA and Daniel C. Nissi and his wife Jennifer of Sherborn, MA. She is also survived by her 16 grandchildren, Nordo IV, Taylor, Molly, James, Julia, Cassandra, Grace, Emily, Sarah, Andrew, Oliver, Jack, Antonio, Marcello, Victoria and Alexander. She has three great grandsons, Asher, Harrison, and Max.

The family will receive friends and family on Monday, April 24, 2017 from 4:00PM-7:00PM at H.L. Farmer and Sons Bradford Funeral Home, 210 S. Main Street Bradford, MA.
