How Did We Do?

Jackie Gabbert age 61 of Winona, MN passed away on Saturday July 6, 2019 at Sugarloaf Senior Living Memory Care Unit after a lengthy battle with early onset Alzheimer's. She was surrounded by her loving family and friends.
Jackie was born at the Linton Hospital in Linton, ND the oldest daughter of Jake and Marlene Walther. She moved with her family to Moorhead, MN at a young age and attended elementary school there. In 1971 her family moved to Winona where she continued her education at the middle school and graduated from Winona senior high in 1976.
While still in high school she began her working career in the health and beauty aids department at Mark-It foods in the Winona Mall eventually becoming a cashier. She continued working in retail first at Midtown Foods and then for sixteen years at Mills Fleet Farm. She finished her working career at Altra Federal Credit Union.
In December 1978 she married Greg Gabbert at St. Mary's Catholic Church. After their marriage they became members of the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart and she participated in the Eucharistic Adoration Chapel. She also enjoyed helping with Cathedral fest each year.
Jackie is survived by her husband, Greg; daughters, Melissa (Christopher) O'Hara; Cherilynn Gabbert and her fiancé Chris Duffenbach; her beloved grandchildren, Vianna O'Hara, Parker O'Hara, and Sophia O'Hara; her mother, Marlene Walther; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her father, Jake Walther and her sister, Cher Benson.
Following Jackie's wishes she will be cremated. A Christian prayer service will be held at 11 a.m., Wednesday, July 10, 2019 at Hoff Celebration of Life Center, Goodview, led by Funeral Celebrant Jodi Heim.

To Jackie's family - I became friends with Jackie when we worked together at Mark-It Foods. We shared an apartment in Winona for a short time - many fond memories. She was a joy to be around always and was such a good person. My heart goes out to all of you at this difficult time

Very Sorry to hear the sad news of Jackie's passing. We met in high school, many years ago, but more recent we would see each other at Fleet Farm. she was always smiling and so helpful.
my heart goes out to the family at this diffcult time.

Marlene and Family - I am so sorry to hear about Jackie. She was a very special. Jackie and I got to know each other in High School. After that, when our paths would cross, it was like we picked up where we left off. I am so sorry to hear about her illness, at such a young age. Jackie's dad, Jake and I, worked together at Watkins for years. He was a special person as well. Hopefully, we will all find some comfort in knowing that all three of them, Jake , Cher and Jackie, are watching over us from heaven.
Take Care - Lynn Matejka Zielke
