"May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back May the sunshine warm your face, the rain fall soft upon your fields.."

Obituary of Jazz Terrio-Tompkins

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Jazz, with her family by her side, on Thursday, October 17, 2019, after a courageous lifetime of battling with her rare disorder, at McMaster Children's Hospital. Loving daughter of William "Billy" Tompkins. Sister to Anna Bryce and Brooke Brianna Tompkins. Niece to April Tompkins, Kevin Tompkins, Floyd Tompkins, and many other aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Jazz was always smiling, laughing and playing. She was full of joy and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

The family will receive friends on Taylor and Reynolds Funeral Home at 70 Niagara Street, Lockport, NY on Saturday, November 16, from 3:00-4:30 PM.

The family wishes to express a sincere thank you to the staff of McMaster Children's Hospital, PICU, and The Ronald McDonald House.

A memorial donation to The Make a Wish Foundation, or The Ronald McDonald House would be appreciated.
