Jean was a housewife, raised their five children and cooked for all on the farm. She and her husband farmed in the Nasonville area from 1951 until 1972 when their son Richard took over operation of the farm.
Jean and Gordon enjoyed traveling throughout the United States and had visited practically every state. She volunteered as a Gray Lady at St. Joseph’s Hospital for twelve years. She will be fondly remembered for the holiday family gatherings at their home and she LOVED to go out to eat with family and friends.
She is lovingly survived by three daughters and two sons, Janet Bongey of West Bend, Donald (Mary Ellen) Nest of Carlsbad, CA, Violet (fiancé – Richard Liddicoat) Gasper of Boynton Beach, FL, Richard (Donna) Nest of Nasonville and Audrey (Bill) Diebels, Jr. of Juneau, AK. She is also survived by fourteen grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. She is further survived by a sister, Faith Mayer of White Bear Lake, MN, two sisters-in-law, her guardian angels, Margaret “Peg” McHugh of Marshfield and Delores “Mutzie” Nest of Mosinee, and her dear friend, Irene James at the Aster Community.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Gordon, brothers, Gordon “Buddy”, Robert “Bob”, Patrick, and James “Jimmy” McHugh, and sons-in-law, Jim Gasper and Leon Bongey.
The family wishes to extend special thanks to the caring staff at Aster Retirement Community, Marshfield.
