Obituary of Beatrice Jansky
Bea passed away November 24, 2017. She began life’s journey Sept. 29, 1918 in LaCrosse, Wisconsin, when she was born to Julius and Goldine Kruger and one of six siblings. She and her husband Jerry started their family in Chicago, Illinois during World War II with their first daughter, Shirley. They moved to California in 1950 and had their second daughter, Karen. Bea retired from Stanford Hospital after 15 years as a Nurses Aide. She and Jerry moved to Santa Rosa in 1975. She continued her desire to help people by working part time at Community Hospital. She found her church family at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church which gave her spiritual comfort for thirty-five years. After her husband passed away in December of 1988 she kept active with her many friends and church activities. She especially loved to bake the many goodies with and for her grandchildren. Her daughters gave her seven grandchildren, nine great grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild. We will miss our mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and great-great grandmother.
Family and friends will celebrate her life on December 28, 2017, 1:00pm at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church. We are thankful for the care and support that Sutter Hospice provided for our family. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Sutter Hospice, 110 Stony Point Road, Suite 110, Santa Rosa, CA 95401.
