Jackie Van Nostrand, age 87, of Catonsville, Maryland passed away on July 5, 2023 at Brightview Assisted Living in Catonsville, Maryland. Born in Baltimore, Maryland, she was the daughter of John Kairis and Catherine Matthews and wife of the late Elbert “Frank” Van Nostrand. For over 30 years, she was an active volunteer and manager for the Fallston Hospital & UCMC Gift Shops. She attended Trinity Lutheran Church occasionally with her son and his family.
