JACQUELINE A. ALTMAN
February 17, 1941 - March 2, 2012
SALEM - Sadly, Jackie passed away unexpectedly from complications due to pulmonary hypertension. In the end, she was surrounded by her loving family and her passing was peaceful.
Jackie was born to Anthony Caruso and Josephine Carpino Caruso in Chicago, Illinois. She and her sister Lucille enjoyed a happy childhood in Chicago surrounded by countless aunts, uncles, and cousins - many of whom she remained close to throughout her adult life in Oregon.
Jackie was predeceased by both of her parents and her sister. She is survived by husband, Bob Altman, children Mike Altman, John Altman, Sally Torrey, Colleen Yoshihara, Chuck Colleran, and Steve Altman, best friend and former husband George Colleran, and 11 grandchildren.
Family meant everything to mom and she played the role of matriarch effortlessly. We are thankful to have received her generosity, unfailing loyalty, and motherly advice (solicited or not!). But most of all we are thankful to be part of the large extended family she created. Her family is her legacy and we are so lucky to be in it.
While she cherished her role as a mother and grandmother she was cherished by many as a true and loyal friend. Jackie was blessed with an abundance of close friends who offered her comfort, encouragement and so much more these last few months. Our family is so grateful for their love and friendship.
We will be celebrating Jackie's life on Friday, March 9th at Illahe Hills Country Club from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. Friends and family are invited.
