With profound peace and sadness, we share the passing of Jacquelyn Ann Wiese Shidla on Monday, March 1, 2021. She was 74 years old, born on February 5, 1947.
On February 24, 1967, Jacquelyn Wiese and Paul Shidla were united in marriage in Excelsior, MN.
Jackie and her husband proudly owned Northwood Valley Kennels for 36 years. She was a member of the Hennepin County Amateur Retriever Club for over 20 years, and member of the AKC. She was a wonderful gardener and cook.
Jackie had a big heart and was very generous and caring to others. She had a great memory, making it hard for anyone to win an argument with her. She had a good sense of humor and infectious laugh. She will be dearly missed!
She is preceded in death by her father, Norman Wiese.
Jackie is survived by her husband of 54 years, Paul Shidla; two sons and their families, Adam Shidla (Christine) and Aaron Shidla (Kim). Jackie was a fond grandmother to, Mallory and Cassidy, Jacob and Lily. She also leaves behind her mother, Beverly Wiese; and other family and friends who will miss her.
Visitation will be held Monday, March 15, 2021 from 4:00 to 8:00 PM, with a prayer service at 7:15 PM, at The Peterson Chapel St. Michael-Albertville Funeral Home.
