Jackie Noel Sailer (nee Braun)
1987 ~ 2022
 

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Jackie Noel Braun Sailer on Monday December 19, 2022. Jackie died at the Riverview Health Centre in Winnipeg surrounded by her family.

Jackie was born on Mother’s Day, May 10, 1987. She is survived by husband, Antonin (Tony) Sailer, sons, Tristan Braun Sailer and Julian Braun Sailer, parents, Murray and Sue Braun, brother, Adam Braun, and grandmother, Lorraine Braun Pokrant. She was predeceased by grandparents, Iris Doney (2008) and Frank Doney (2014), grandfather, Art Braun (1989) and step-grandfather, Wally Pokrant (2021).

Jackie was born in Winnipeg and moved to Morden with her parents and brother in 1989. Jackie started playing piano at a young age. Jackie loved figure skating. She was proud of her involvement as a figure skater and on the synchronized team. During her teen years she had the opportunity to own and ride several different horses and became an accomplished equestrian.  Jackie was involved in a 4H horse club, where she competed provincially, as well as being involved in Pony Club.  In high school she played trombone in the jazz band. She was a confident singer and enjoyed her time with the high school choir. After graduating from Morden Collegiate in 2003, she went on to study at the University of Manitoba where she graduated with an advanced degree in political studies. During her time at university, she became involved in recreational co-ed soccer. It was through soccer that she met the love of her life, Tony. They were married on June 7, 2014, in Winnipeg at the Southwood Golf & Country Club.  In 2017 they were blessed by the birth of their first child (Tristan), and in 2021 their second child (Julian).

Jackie worked for a short time at Western Insurance Company before moving on to her career at the Province of Manitoba in Manitoba Health, Office of the Fire Commission and later in the Civil Service Commission and the Social Innovation Office. Jackie and Tony enjoyed traveling.  They traveled to Costa Rica, Mexico, Canada’s east coast, the Rocky Mountains, stops in England, Scotland, Portugal, Ireland on their way to visit Tony’s extended family in the Czech Republic twice.

Jackie was a dedicated public servant, wife, parent, daughter, and friend. She had a creative side expressed in her baking and painting. Jackie always spent her life in pursuit of growth, whether that was personal or professional. She always sought to challenge herself by finding a better, more efficient way of doing things. During her illness, she spent her time teaching herself to knit and crochet, with each new project learning a new stitch or skill.

Jackie passed due to liver failure, a direct result of the triple negative metastatic breast cancer. She received this diagnosis in April of 2021 while pregnant with her second son, Julian. She went through many different treatments which kept the tumors at bay in some parts of her body. However, the treatments were not effective at treating the tumors in her liver and lungs. There is no cure for triple negative metastatic breast cancer. In October of 2022 she made the decision to enter the palliative care program and spend her remaining time at home with her family.

Jackie received excellent care from Cancer Care Manitoba and St. Boniface Hospital where she received all of her treatments. She spent the last week of her life at the palliative care unit at Riverview Health Center. The medical team there was caring, empathetic, and professional. Our family will forever be grateful to those who supported us over the course of Jackie's illness and appreciate everyone's willingness to help in any way possible. We received many gifts of food over the last 2 years, all of which made our lives a little easier.
