Jacqueline E. (Regan) Parks, 75, of Chelmsford, MA passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 3 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She was the beloved wife to the late Samuel Ira Parks. Born in Lowell, she was the daughter of the late Walter and Estelle (Cote) Regan.
She graduated from Chelmsford High School with the class of 1959. During her career, she was an executive secretary at Hanscom Air Force Base, Merrimack Education Center in Chelmsford and finally retired at Boshco, Inc. in Billerica. However, her most rewarding job was raising her two children.
She was a member of St. John The Evangelist Church in Chelmsford. Jacqueline was a philanthropist, giving to many organizations while also supporting the Audubon Society and her favorite charity, the Lowell Humane Society, where she adopted many rescued cats.
She enjoyed spending many fun days and boat rides with her family on Bow Lake, where she was a Honorary Director of the Bow Lake Camp Owners Association. She was completely devoted to her grandchildren and loved to travel worldwide with her brother and friends. Her enormous generosity, quick wit and unfailing courage will be missed by all that knew her.
