Jacqueline Ann Mursko, 82, of North Haven, CT, was welcomed into the company of God’s Christmas angels at eleven o’clock PM on December 24, 2023.

Jacqueline was the daughter of the late Andrew M. Mursko and Mary K. Mursko.  She  was raised in North Haven on Round Hill Road and attended Southern Connecticut State University, graduating with a degree in education.  She taught third grade for 35 years in West Haven at Molloy School where she took great pride in all of her students.  Jackie joyfully filled the role of honorary grandparent with her two nephews and then was Auntie Great for their children, showering them with love while teaching them lessons.  She devoted her life to family, friends, education, and Church, at Our Lady of Mount Carmel.  She always cheered enthusiastically for the NY Yankees and the UConn women’s basketball teams.  She loved shopping, Christmas, cross stitching, having her hair done, poodles, phone calls, gift giving and family celebrations. Jackie was quick to strike up a conversation and eager to help, her warm personality will be sorely missed by everyone.  Jackie’s lessons in and out of the classroom will continue to inspire those who were lucky enough to have known her.

The family wishes to thank the nurses and staff of Elim Park Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Cheshire for their loving care.

Jackie is survived by her brother Frank and his wife Karen of Manchester; also by her nephews Andrew of WA and Matthew of MA and their respective families. As more than an aunt, she embraced a major role in their lives.

Public visiting will be 8:30 to 9:30 AM on Friday, December 29th at The Haven family North Haven Funeral Home, 36 Washington Avenue.  A Mass of Christian Burial will follow at 10AM at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Hamden.  Burial will follow at St. Lawrence Cemetery, in West Haven.
