Jacqueline E. McClive (Snyder) “Jackie”
Pittsford: Passed away on December 9, 2020 at age 67 with her family by her side. She was predeceased by her parents, Paul & Mary Snyder; brother, Paul Snyder; sister, Barbara Frey. She is survived by the love of her life for 50 years, Ed.

McClive, Sr.; brother-in-law, Timothy (Dana) McClive; many nieces, nephews, cousins and numerous dear friends including Jennifer Fox, Debbie Kingsberry, Diane Selleck and Collette Wheeler.
The youngest of 6, Jackie was born in Punxsutawney PA, and accordingly celebrated groundhog’s day every year.
Many people will remember Jackie from her years of work and service with the Town of Henrietta’s Recreation Department. She worked with children, families and developmental adults teaching crafts and leading recreation groups. She spent many happy years at the Senior Center, where she befriended many of Henrietta’s elderly residents. She always had a special connection with older folks, and was an especially caring friend during the final years of a person’s life. She treated her senior friends with respect and learned from their vast experience, taking cooking lessons, listening to their stories and sharing their knowledge.
Other people will remember Jackie’s life-long love of sewing, crafting and art. She loved creating, and would very often meet a new friend and have a handmade gift for them soon after. It’s likely that all her friend’s homes have a little piece of Jackie hanging on the wall, closet or cabinet or being worn.
Still others will remember her as Mom. Her house was always open to the children’s friends. She hosted many trips to Darien Lake, birthday parties, sleepovers and sewing lessons through the years.
During Jackie’s 2 year struggle with cancer, she remained her funny, cheerful self. She planned trips, outings and theme parties bringing her friends and family closer together. Her creative side continued to flourish. She began painting more, worked on many new projects and sewed over 150 masks during the first month of COVID to give to anyone who needed them.
