Jackalene M. Razze (nee Buckalew) of Ewan NJ, age 86, passed peacefully on February 18, 2021.  Jackie, wife of 67 years to the late Joseph, will be missed by children Gary J. (Janet), Douglas S., Scott C. (Cindy), grandchildren Janine, Danielle, Christopher, Matthew, Andrew, great granddaughter Marie, and her beloved cat Snowy. 

Born and raised in Gibbstown (NJ), Jackie graduated from Paulsboro High School in 1951, marrying her sweetheart Joseph the very next day. Until Joe’s passing, the poem she placed in her HS Yearbook would tell their tale, “They’re always together, Jackie and Joe; Whatever they do, wherever they go”.  After living in CA and RI while Joe served in the Korean War, Jackie would follow him back to his hometown of Ewan to raise a family.  She was employed by Del Monte Foods (Swedesboro) until shifting to full time wife, mother, and homemaker.  Jackie later attended PB Beauty School, becoming a hairstylist at DorAnn’s (Glassboro) and Hair Port (Pitman) before semi-retiring to her home salon for family and friends.  She was a devoted member of Ewan Methodist Church, serving as a Sunday School teacher for many years and later Board Secretary.  Jackie was known as a creative and strong-willed person that always knew what her family needed, even if it was just that perfect QVC gift that grandmom would always find that you didn’t know you needed.

Services will be private at the convenience of the family.
