Nancy J. Jeanpierre, 81
March 11, 1933 - March 7, 2015
Nancy J. Jeanpierre, 81, of Kohlsville finished her marathon of life and went home to the hands of her Lord surrounded by her loving family on Saturday, March 7, 2015, at Aurora Medical Center, Grafton. She was born in Milwaukee on March 11, 1933, the daughter of Oliver and Irene (nee Klug) McFarlin. She attended Riverside High School in Milwaukee. Nancy married Thomas E. Jeanpierre on July 25, 1953, at St. Peter and Paul Church, Milwaukee.
Nancy was the glue of her family and was “always there” and the moral compass of her family. She was a very courageous, unwavering, patriotic woman. Along with taking care of her husband and raising her four children, Nancy worked at the Union snack bar at UW-Milwaukee, bringing smiles to hundreds of students daily. Whoever met Nancy, instantly became her friend. She loved all animals especially her rabbits, birds and enjoyed flowers particularly lilacs and gardenias. Nancy also “LOVED” shopping and rummaging.
Those left behind to cherish her memory include her husband Tom, her children Jeffrey (Valerie) Jeanpierre, Cheryl (Jim Freiberg) Jeanpierre, Thomas P. (Kerry) and Michelle (Lance) Kehoe; nine grandchildren, Nicole, Emily, Jordan, Austin, Erik, Robbie, Tommy, Jack and Jeremy; brother David Klug, sister-in-law Mary (Carl) Eckhardt, other relatives and friends. Nancy was preceded in death by her parents, and her brothers John and Ronald Klug.
A celebration of her life and her 82nd birthday, will be held Wednesday, March 11, with visitation from 4 p.m. until time of Mass at St. Kilian Catholic Church, St. Killian (N185 Highway W, Campbellsport). Mass of Christian Burial will be Wednesday, March 11, at 6 p.m. at St. Kilian Catholic Church. The Rev. John Radetski will officiate and burial will be Thursday morning at 10 a.m. in St. Kilian Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorials appreciated to the Washington County Humane Society.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the entire staff of Aurora in Grafton for their excellent care and compassion to Nancy and her family.
“But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand, that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand.”
