STUART, Fla. – Jacqueline Jessica Drucker Segaolff Silverberg died at home in the early hours of March 30.

Left to cherish her memory is her brother, David (Penny) Drucker, her two sons, David Segaloff (Judy) and Peter (Deborah) Segaloff, and grandchildren, Avram, Hannah (Ryan), Benjamin, Shalom and Eliyahu, and Sabine (Kieran) and Emma.

Jacqueline was born in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England, on January 9, 1938, to parents Ena (Lukes) and Jack Drucker. On a graduation trip to America by her Uncle Louis, she fell in love and moved her life to Newport News, Va. for 35 years. It is there she and her first husband, Walter Segaloff, raised their two boys, David and Peter.

Jaci was a fashion icon for women in the Tidewater region, as she helped build the LaVogue business and her own boutique, JACI. She was active in various parts of the Jewish community, especially Hadassah. She is best remembered for the Hadassah art shows she put together with many incredible and budding artists.

In 2002, Jaci married Jerroll Silverberg of New Canaan, Conn. The two enjoyed traveling and their international lives.

Jaci touched many lives over her fabulous life. She was generous, fun, smart, and self-educated. Jaci knew how to light up a room and dazzle. Her many friends, family, and fans will miss her and remember the joie de vivre she exuded. Jaci never met a stranger and left a lasting impression on anyone who knew her. She could converse about theater, literature, art, and a world of knowledge that was boundless.

A graveside funeral was held at the Hebrew Cemetery in Hampton, Va. Rabbi Roz Mandleberg of Ohef Sholom Temple officiated.
