NASHUA—Jacqueline T. Fair, age 74, of Nashua passed away unexpectedly on September 26, 2018.
Born in Nashua on February, 9, 1944, she was the daughter of the late Simon and Jean D’Arc (St. Laurent) Sirois. She was a graduate of St. Louis High School in Nashua, and later went on to become the bookkeeper at Infant Jesus Church, where she worked for the last 26 years.

Her family and her faith were the most important things in the world to her.

Whether it was attending one of her grandchildren’s soccer games or plays, or showing off their many artistic talents to others, she was their biggest champion.
