After a ten-year battle with multiple myeloma, Jacqueline Jo Boese, age 80 of Oshkosh, was freed from pain and found peace on Saturday, August 27, 2022 at Evergreen Retirement Community.

She worked at various places throughout life including, Oshkosh B’gosh, Menasha Corporation, for the U.S. Postal Service, and the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh bookstore.

Everyone who knew Jacqueline, knew she had a zest for life and was a night owl. In her earlier years, she was an avid golfer and bowler, she also loved roller blading and tap dancing with Pastor Martin Rouge. Jackie enjoyed playing cards, especially 9-hole golf. Later in life, she and Bob made Panama City Beach, Florida their second home to escape the Wisconsin winters. After wintering in Florida, Jackie enjoyed summers by her pool where she could enjoy her gardens full of hostas that she loved to collect. Jackie had a love for glitz, glam and shopping, she always loved hunting for a good bargain at Beall’s, Dillards and everywhere else. Jackie was a faithful and involved member of Christ Lutheran Church (now Christ-Our Savior’s) and served as altar guild and participated in many bake sales for the church.
