She attended Monroe Community College and completed coursework towards a Business Degree. Niece enjoyed serving and helping people. She felt her calling in life was to provide outstanding care to children and adults, especially the elderly; to do so with compassion and tender-loving care. In fact, her last job was giving this same kind of love and compassionate care to her 94 year old Aunt Geneva. Jacqueline also worked at Unique Hats & Wigs Shop and at Milly’s Beauty Salon where excellent customer service skills were demonstrated on a daily basis. Jacqueline had just recently received her Security Guard License.
Jacqueline was first married to Nichols Williams. Following this marriage, Jacqueline eventually moved from Rochester to Schenectady, New York along with the two young children to which she had become mother, Robert and Taliesa Evans. In Schenectady is where She met and later married Broderick Scales. To this union was born Ebony Monique Scales. In the passing of much time, Jacqueline and the children moved back to Rochester. Throughout the many challenges and struggles in her life, Jacqueline never gave up her faith in God and her desire and hope for a better life for herself and her children. The theme song of her life was “Thank You Lord For All That You Have Done for Me.” As a member of Unique Ministries Church, pastored by Bishop Mildred Session Meney, she loved leading and participating in the praise and worship services. Jacqueline was a true shopaholic. Jacqueline was always the finder of the best sales in town. If she found a pair of shoes on sale, she would buy one of every color. She would call everybody and tell them what was on sale and where. The trunk of her car was always filled with the bargain sales she found. Not only did she like to shop, but to dress herself as pretty and glitzy as possible. Her eyelashes, fancy finger and toes to match were trademarks. She also enjoyed cooking her ‘more than enough’ big meals.
