Jeanette Bos-Guttierez

Jeanette Bos-Guttierez quietly passed into eternity with her family by her side on Dec. 25, 2009.

Jeanette was a native of Amelia, Texas and moved to Wisconsin to be closer to her sister (Nancy Bos-Mercado) in 1985.

Prior to that, Jeanette had the opportunity to live in and travel throughout Europe for many years.

She also spent several years living in Hawaii with her husband while he served in the United States Army before being deployed to Vietnam.

Jeanette was a loving Christian woman who devoted countless hours to prayer and biblical study. She tirelessly prayed for her family and those in need.

When life's challenges presented themselves, Jeanette faced them with the determination and character of a true Christian woman.

She never complained nor did her faith in Jesus ever waiver. She persevered and always sought our Lord's guidance.

Jeanette worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant in Long Term Care, and that same determination that guided Jeanette's faith, also led her to receive countless recognition from her employers for her dedication and devotion to each patient, as well as, accommodations for excellent work ethics and her willingness to go the extra mile for each patient under her care.

Jeannette was a loving Christian woman who placed the needs of others well before her own. She often spent her free time knitting afghans for her nieces and nephews that will be cherished for years to come.

Jeanette was a true inspiration to many and will be greatly missed. It is because of her faith in Jesus Christ that Jeanette Bos-Guitterez is walking amongst the Angels today.

The Family would like to extend its most sincere gratitude to Dr. Peter Cornelius who made it possible for Jeanette to have the quality of life she enjoyed. Because of Dr. Cornelius' constant devotion to patient care Jeanette lived her years comfortably. He was a true blessing to Jeanette and our family.

Jeanette is survived by her sister Nancy Bos-Mercado of Jackson, Wis.; brothers Ed (Vicki) Bos of Lumberton Texas and Earl (Barbara) Bos of DeRidder La.

She is also survived by nieces and nephews Mary Lou Mercado and Terry Schuester (Ellie and Holly), James and Cheri Mercado (Vanessa and Olivia), Joe and DeAnn Mercado (Jack and Hannah) who reside in Wisconsin; and Brooke Bos-Slover and Wesley Slover and Richard Bos of DeRidder La.; James Edward Bos (Aaron, Alex, Andrew) of Kingwood Texas and Tracy Lynn (nee Bos) and Michael Dovalina (Caleb & Tabitha) of Lumberton Texas.

A private memorial service was held in Jeanette's honor.
