Loving Mother, Sister, Aunt

Jacqueline L. “Jacqui” (Richard) Cohen, of Lowell, died unexpectedly on Wednesday, January 8, 2020, in Boston, aged 71 years.

Jacqui enjoyed traveling, having recently visited Iceland to view the Northern Lights. Most of her travels were to warm climates with sandy beaches. She also enjoyed music, movies, and cruising the Boulevard.

During her retirement years, Jacqui and her former coworkers enjoyed meeting for lunch every Wednesday.
