Jacquelyn Boutin Plante of 19132 W Osborn Road, Litchfield Park, Arizona, died at home on Saturday, December 19, 2015 after a yearlong battle with brain cancer. She was 67 years old.  During her illness, she was in the loving care of Hospice of the Valley and her husband, Bob Plante.

Jackie was born on October 9, 1948 in Chelsea, MA to Kenneth and Ruth (Carpenter) Tonks. Jackie lived in Massachusetts, Maine and California before the family finally settled in Warwick, RI in 1959.  Jackie graduated from Warwick Veterans Memorial High School in 1966 and continued her education at Rhode Island College where she received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Education.

Over the years, Jackie worked in Rhode Island at Bradley Hospital and finally worked in the Cumberland school system where she retired as a Special Education teacher from McCourt Middle School in 2010.

Jackie and Bob were Disney Vacation club members and spent many magical vacations at various Disney Resorts and on Disney Cruises during their twenty years as members, usually sharing their adventures with friends and family. Jackie loved the outdoors and she and Bob traveled extensively in the US and visited many national parks.  Shortly before her illness, she and her husband spent two weeks camping at Yosemite National Park.

Jackie was an avid and accomplished photographer and enjoyed taking many photographs during her travels. She loved Arizona and her home on Osborn Road with her many cactus and fruit trees.

Memorials for Jackie will be announced and will be held in Litchfield Park, AZ, Florida and Rhode Island. In lieu of flowers donations should be made in her name to Hospice of the Valley.
