Jaclyn (Jaki) A. Cogdill, born December 29, 1952, left us for the glory of heaven Thursday, May 14, 2020. She was predeceased by her parents, Robert J and Nelva E. (Nee) Kaden Cogdill, brother, Michael R. McGregor, former husband, Michael H. Estrin, and niece Aimee Christine Hover.
Surviving Jaki are her dear children, daughter’s, Hillary E. Cogdill-Estrin (Josh Manley), and Hayley R. Cogdill-Estrin (Troy Dennison), sons, Michael Keegan J. Cogdill Estrin and Connor M. Cogdill Estrin (Shana), and grandson, Isaiah James Rose, whom she adored, as he did her.
Additionally, her sisters, Robin P. Cogdill (Jim Baerg), and Eileen R. Jensen (Jesse), as well as nieces and nephew, cousins and Aunt Maxine Helium and Uncle Mitchell Cogdill and Aunt Marsha Cogdill, and many friends will greatly miss her love, friendship and generosity.
Jaki was an extraordinary nurse in high risk Labor and Delivery at Swedish Hospital in Seattle, WA., for her lengthy career, helping many women welcome their babies into this world.
She graduated Cascade High School, Everett, WA, in 1971, and Edmonds College in the 1980’s, with her degree in Nursing.
Beside loving her family, Jaki enjoyed shopping for antiques, actually, shopping of anything. She also enjoyed travel, especially to Ireland with her daughter’s, and also with her dear friend, Joan Parks on several occasions. Selecting flowers at Pike Place Market, she could arrange the loveliest bouquets. Jaki bought others the most perfect gifts, writing endearing sentiments in the accompanying cards. And so she danced her way through life. These memories remain in our hearts forever.
With great sadness, we say good-bye for now, waiting our reunion in heaven at the throne of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Hallelujah!
A gathering in her remembrance will be held at a later date. Donations in her name may be made to Truth for Life with Alistair Begg, P.O. Box 398000, Cleveland, Ohio 44139 or Truthforlife.org

No words are adequate to express our loss. Your mama was a wonderful and brilliant woman and a precious sister. I thank God that we’ll get to be together again. I’m praying for you all. ❤️
