Jacqueline Perrone

Jacqueline Hazel (Batty) Perrone, 78, of Ashland passed away peacefully on Sept. 3.

Jackie was born as an only child to Gilbert and Ruby Batty of Bradford, England, on July 28, 1944. She emigrated from England at the age of 19 to the United States, where she met her husband, Frank Perrone of Worcester, marrying in 1967 and settling in Holliston. In the 1970s,  Jackie began her career in banking. While working full-time and raising her family, she pursued her undergraduate and master’s degrees at Lesley University, graduating with a GPA of 3.9. She continued her successful banking career, retiring as senior vice president, director of learning and development for Bank of America in 2004. She was the loving mother of Marc (Jeanine) Perrone of Cohasset and Kahron Dieter (Jeff) of Hopkinton. She was a devoted grandmother to Kevin, Morgan, Jillian, Nicholas and Ryan. She was predeceased by her husband, Frank Perrone.

Jackie’s first love in life was her family. They brought her joy and harmony. Jackie’s selflessness and ability to be present provided insight and wisdom and helped so many to see situational clarity, self-clarity and self-love above all else. People found deep value in her and sought out her advice, as it always came from a place of non-judgement and understanding. Her family and close friends fully recognize the importance of  her teachings.

Jackie was a trusted friend, coach and mentor to her family, friends and anyone she met. She befriended many, both locally and through her worldwide adventures. She was curious to learn about all individuals, for she believed every individual holds value. She truly understood and upheld the meaning of life.

Her family will be holding a celebration of her life on Sunday, Nov. 13, at Hopkinton Country Club from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Services are under the care of the McNamara-Sparrell Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Chestnut Hill Benevolent Association.
