Jean’s Notice of Death Jean Rose, 91, died quietly in her home on January 20, 2022, following a brief illness, with her hand held by family. She had been hospitalised earlier that day. She was born on July 2, 1930, in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, to the late Lawrence and Eola (née Polzean) Bohlman. She was the daughter of the late Lawrence and Eola (nee Polzean). Jeanette Jewell Bohlman tied the knot with David Rose on September 24, 1949, in the Evangelical United Brethren Church in rural Eden, where they had met and fallen in love. Jean grew up in the Eden region and graduated from Campbellsport High School in 1948. She spent the majority of her life there. Every morning, she awoke with a cheerful, thankful, and joyful attitude toward life. Jean was well-known for her generosity, friendliness, and excellent sense of humour, among other qualities. In her spare time, she enjoyed putting puzzles together and was still working on “Wheel of Fortune” riddles just a few days before she died. Besides her six children, Gloria Olson (Randy Lowe), Jim (Mary), Gary, Dan (Shirley), Dale, and Steve are also left to mourn (Charlene). Countless nieces and nephews, 23 grandchildren, great and great-great grandchildren, brother-in-law Robert Plummer, and sister-in-law Dorothy Bohlman are also left to treasure her memory, as are numerous nieces and nephews. Jean was predeceased by her husband David on October 7, 2019, as well as her parents, siblings Donald Bohlman, Darlene “Dode” Mielke, Larry Bohlman, Vivian Plummer, Joyce Baumhardt, and Barbara Thelen, as well as her brothers-in-law, Donald and Larry Bohlman, Larry Bohlman, and Barbara Thelen. John Thelen, Arthur “Doc” Mielke, Norbert Baumhardt, and Norbert Baumhardt’s sister-in-law were present. Loretta Bohlman, her daughter-in-law Peggy Rose, and her granddaughter Sandra Lowe were all in attendance. In lieu of flowers, a private graveside service will be performed at Empire Cemetery, with a Celebration of Jean’s Life to follow at a later date.
