Jacqueline Teater Zwart, age 57, passed away on Sunday, May 13.
She was born on Nov. 6, 1961 in Danbury. She was a longtime resident of Darien and a graduate from Darien High School. She recently resided in Norwalk.
Jacqueline loved going to the beach, warm summer days and being out on the ocean and fishing. She loved all animals but most of all cats.
She loved flowers and always had a house full of potted plants. She loved fireworks and did not miss one show down on the beach in July.
She was creative, loved decorating her home, celebrating the holidays and was an amazing cook. Most of all Jacqueline was a beautiful, adventurous free spirited soul, both brave and a fighter. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
