Jackie A. Tibbetts
Jackie A. Tibbetts, 69 of Fond du Lac, passed away Monday,
February 11, 2013, at St. Luke’s Hospital in Milwaukee. She was born July 19,
1943 in Fond du Lac, the daughter of the late John and Elsie Foy Murphy. She was
a graduate of St. Mary Springs Academy. On August 14, 1971 she married Paul M.
Tibbetts at St. Mary’s Church, Eden. Jackie worked as a legal secretary at Nuss
Law Office, and then as a homemaker and bookkeeper for Paul’s business Lightning
Repairs. She was an avid reader and enjoyed walks through her woods. Jackie
served on the Building Committee for the Campbellsport Elementary School. She
was a proud Irish woman, enjoying all things Irish but the many hours spent with
her grandsons to whom she was “Beam-Beam” was her most cherished time.
Those left behind to cherish Jackie’s memory include her husband, Paul, her
daughters Sara (Alan) Hathaway, Molly (Chuck) Gehrt and Katie Tibbetts and her
grandsons Oscar, Henry and Eamon; her beloved Murphy and Tibbetts families and
many dear friends. Jackie had a special group of cousins, Sharon Donovan, Mary
Jo Birschbach, Mary Zwicker, Barb Reinhold, and Sandra Dixon (deceased) with
whom she had monthly dinners and an annual trip to Door County that meant so
much to her.
