F, b. September 7, 1927, d. June 5, 2016
- Birth: Jacqueline Beaumier was born on September 7, 1927.
- Death: She died on June 5, 2016, at age 88, in Oconto, Oconto Co, Wisconsin.
- Note: Jacqueline "Jackie B" Beaumier, 88, former Pulaski resident, passed away peacefully Sunday, June 5, 2016, at Woodland Village of Oconto with her niece, Candy, and nephew, Rick, at her side. The daughter of John and Genevieve (Maus) Beaumier was born September 7, 1927.
Jackie worked for Northern Shoe in Pulaski for many years, and later worked for Paul's Pantry until retiring in her eighties. A strong-willed woman, she was very hardworking and was always doing something. During her time at Paul's Pantry, youth who went through the local court system and were charged to do community service were often assigned to work with Jackie, as she had a reputation for keeping them on task. Although she never had children of her own she was a very giving woman who took care of many children, both family and friends. It wasn't unusual to have to purchase new 'supplies' for Jackie, as she had given all of hers away.
Survivors include two sisters: Charmaine and Caroline; and one brother, Dale; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by one sister, Rosie; three brothers: Vilas, Daniel, and Blair; as well as nieces and nephews.
Friends may call at Marnocha Funeral Home, Pulaski from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. Friday. The Funeral Service will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. Friday at the funeral home, Fr. Patrick Gawrylewski, O.F.M. officiating. Burial will take place in SS. Edward & Isidore Cemetery, Flintville.
The family would like to thank the staffs of Heartland Hospice and Woodland Village of Oconto for their care and concern.
