BRACK, Jacqueline M. “Jackie”

January 29, 2021

Jacqueline M. “Jackie” BRACK (nee Marko), age 86. Beloved mother of Renee Shaarda (John), Jeffrey, Daniel (dec.), Randy (Carol), and Jill Reffert (David Graham).

Dear Great Grandmother of Brayden, Scarlett, Tommy, Logan, C.J., and Natalie, and Joey. Loving sister of John Marko, Pam Camacho, and the late Mildred Kavc. Dear Aunt and friend to many. 

Mom always said her greatest accomplishment was raising her 5 children and always said how proud she was of each of us.  As a grandma she loved having sleepovers, playing games, and baking cookies with her grandchildren – each of whom has a special grandma-branded nickname.  Her love, kindness and generosity towards others were remarkable and will forever live on through her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She graciously hosted many family holiday get-togethers where lifelong traditions will be carried on for generations to come.  Her summer time pool parties are ones we’ll never forget. She loved to “putz around” in her yard where she expressed how the earth made her feel at peace and closer to God.   Now she has finally “tap danced down her driveway” and into the arms of her son, grandson, parents, and sister. 

A Memorial Service will be held at a later date. To offer condolences please visit

FOR MORE ABOUT LOTTIE’S LIFE, VIDEO, AND LIVE STREAMING, AND TO OFFER CONDOLENCES VISIT

On January 18, 2021 when God asked the euphoric band of Angels in Heaven to play a Polka,
Lottie gently left the Earth to go up to join the celestial dance. Mom was tenderly met by her
favorite dance partner, her loving husband of 53 years, Harry Louis Ford, who preceded her to
God’s state of eternal joy in 1991.

Lottie was 104. She was born in Cleveland on February 23, 1916 to Haeronim Czerpa and Aniela
(nee Misiak) Czerpa. Lottie always had a strong and comfortable relationship with God. Her
joyful spirit and love of life was contagious. She collected baseball cards and was a very
talented seamstress. She loved to sew, embroider and do bead work. Through the years she
created many beautiful bead-embroidered pictures for family members to enjoy. She was a
very good cook and anyone who walked through the door was always invited to sit down and
enjoy a meal.

Lottie is survived by her four children and their spouses: Rosalyn Kalinoski (spouse Kenneth) of Sarasota, FL; Marlene Ford (formerly Trocheck then Blendenhofer) of Tampa, FL; Steven Ford (spouse Maryann) of Morristown, NJ, and David Ford (spouse Cindy) of Avon, OH. Our childhood home on Marvin Avenue in Cleveland was a very happy and noisy home filled with constant fun, laughter, music, love, and plenty of good food, especially walleye and perch from Lake Erie.  Lottie also leaves nine grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, and three great-great grandchildren.

Lottie is survived by her sister, Alice Furmanek. Their brothers and sisters anxiously waiting to
greet Lottie in Heaven are Stella Wolff, Joseph Czerpa, Walter Czerpa, Edward Czerpa and Violet

Our entire family is eternally grateful for the wisdom, guidance, patience, understanding,
humor and unconditional love that Mom had for all of her family. She always encouraged us to
enjoy life to its greatest potential. She was, and forever will be, a great role model for all of us.
We will miss her dearly.
