In Memoriam of Jackie Fletchner

It is with sadden hearts that we inform you of the death of a long-time friend, fellow club member, and former secretary of our Ankokas car club. She died on January 6 th in Massachusetts at the age of 85. In 2013 she was visiting her son and his family in MA for Thanksgiving when she suffered a stroke. She recovered, had been through rehabilitation, and was planning to return home. Before she could, she had another stroke which was massive this time and had to be cared for in a nursing home where she died.

We became acquainted with Jackie when she would attend our functions with Dr.Romeo Luongo, who had a 1965 Cadillac convertible. After Romeos death in1999, Jackie continued as a member, becoming secretary from 2004 until 2013. She was also our meeting snack lady who made sure that we had our Dunkin Donuts, coffee, and soda. Jackie came out to all of our functions and always helped with whatever we were doing. She has been and will be missed.

Lionel model trains, Remco, Hot Wheels, Monopoly, doll houses, tin toys, the list of makers and toys goes on and on. In addition to toys, the State Museum follows the history of New Jersey's archeology and ethnography, it's culture, natural history, and works from the state's 17th through 20th century fine artists.
