Jeanette Bohac



     Jeanette Frances Bohac, 90, passed away Saturday, Sept. 17, 2022, at Oak Garden Place in Altoona, WI.

     Jeanette was born Dec. 30, 1931, to John and Anna (Clements) Capaul. On June 10, 1954, she was united in marriage to Donald James Bohac. After high school, Jeanette went on to a two-year school in La Crosse where she received her teaching degree. Her first job was as an elementary school teacher in Pomroy. After Pomroy closed down she was a stay-at-home mom to her four kids and helped out on their family farm. Once the kids were old enough to be in school Jeanette became a teachers’ aide, a substitute teacher and then ended up as the elementary school secretary for 25-plus years. 

     During Jeanette’s life, she was an extremely active member of the community. She highly participated in 4-H, the fair, community service for Hixton where she started the “Flower Girls;” all reasons for why she had been named one of the “Women in History” in Jackson County. In her spare time, Jeanette loved to quilt, sew, can, garden and sometimes hit the casino. She also loved watching her Packers and Badgers. Jeanette and Donald spent a lot of time traveling; they had been all over the East and West coast: Alaska, Bahamas, Mexico, Hawaii, visiting her sister in Missouri and going on senior bus trips. Jeanette will be missed by many.

     She is preceded in death by her husband, Donald; brothers Robert Capaul and Bernard Capaul; sisters Alice Miller and Frances Hayes; and grandsons Billy Earley and Jason Bohac.

     Jeanette is survived by her children, Linda (Bruce) Tripp, Allen (Jane) Bohac, Patricia (Michael) Gregory and David (Melanie) Bohac; grandchildren Nick (Kristie) Bohac, Jeri Bohac, Daniel (Altana) Earley, Gail (Clint) Wanta, Tracy (Jeremy) Davis, Anna (Fiancé Floyd Hazelton) Gregory, Steven (fiancé Hayle Peterson) Gregory, Leanna Cernohaus and Samara (Tyson) Clarke; great-grandchildren Brett, Jack, Issac, Evan, Jack, Joah, Juniper, Arriana, Annika, Andin, Alana, Jada, Jager and Jerik; and sisters Joanne Schroeder and Betty (Gary) O’Brien; and sister-in-law Jeanne Capaul.
