Jaci is also survived by a sister Gail (Lew) Sorenson of Dummerston, VT. and a very special cousin, more like a sister, Kathy Lefco (Richard Edmonds) of Evanston, IL. Other survivors include in-laws: Jerry (Jane) Maly of Middleton; Carol (Ken) Funnemark of Cottage Grove; Ray (Evonne) Maly of Stoughton; Rita Daleo of Waunakee, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her brother Larry, brother-in-law Steve Daleo and in-laws Herb and Eleanor Maly.

Jaci brought joy, love, and respect into everyone's life: family, friends, even strangers.... We will all miss her infectious smile and positive attitude. She promised to continue caring for us until we all meet again.

There will be a visitation at 10:00am at St. Bernards's Catholic Church, 2015 Parmenter St. Middielton, WI. 53562, with a short service officiated by Msgr. Douglas Dushack (a truly valued family friend) at 11:00am.

If desired, in lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Charity of donor's choice or to your local Humane Society in her honor... she was a true lover of animals.
