Jeanette was born December 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 a 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 + 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 “women of the year” 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
