Obituary for Jaceil "Jackie" Mostek

Jaceil “Jackie” Irene Mostek, 86, of Waterloo, died peacefully Friday, May 24, at Bickford Cottage in Cedar Falls, surrounded by family and friends.

Jaceil worked for the Waterloo Community School District for 24 years before retiring in 1996. She then volunteered at Highland Elementary until 2018, winning several awards including the mayor’s volunteer award and the Governor’s Volunteer Award three times. Jaceil loved bowling, having coffee with her friends at Panera Bread, taking walks, gardening, dancing and going to church. She played the accordion and could yodel beautifully.
