Jackie embodied the spirit of creativity, kindness, and generosity in everything she did and to everyone she met.
Jackie was a beloved wife to her husband David "Mugsy" Meuer, a loving mother to her three children, Melissa Meuer (Rob) of Guttenberg, IA, Marsha (Craig) Fritz Boscobel, WI, and Mark Meuer (Nicole) of Mauston, WI. Her grandchildren - Shelby George, Lynlea Fritz, and Lealyn Fritz, all from Boscobel, WI - inherited her loving and friendly nature.

Jackie also leaves behind several nieces and nephews, each of whom she held a special spot in her heart.
She was preceded in death by her parents, infant son, sister, mother and father in-law, brother in-law, and nephew.
Jackie's zest for learning took root at Woodstock Schools where she had her early education. This laid a foundation for her diverse career, which spanned several years and industries. She worked at the McHenry County Courthouse shortly after high school, dedicating her time to serving the public. Later, she expanded her vocational experience at Fin-N-Feather and then Advance Transformer. Jackie provided exemplary service while working in the food department of Southwest Wisconsin Technical College and continued to uplift the spirits and nourish the bodies of residents at Sannes Skogdalen, through the same role. Jackie finalized her service years at Cenex, where she carried an unwavering passion and commitment.
However, Jackie was not just defined by her jobs. Her creativity was the fabric that bound her loving personality. She was passionate about arts and crafts and found joy in crocheting beautiful blankets, hats, scarfs, mittens, and dresses. Recently, Jackie discovered Diamond Painting which piqued her interest and provided another creative outlet. She also had a knack for making personalized cards. Jackie was a true craftswoman who never shied away from any creative endeavor.
Loving, generous, and friendly, Jackie spread a radiant warmth that touched many lives. She always had a smile for everyone and went out of her way to lend a helping hand. Her boundless creativity was an inspiration to many around her while her resilient spirit radiated strength.
Jackie left a legacy of love, creativity, and kindness that her family continues to revere and cherish. Her charming spirit, cheerful personality, and undying enthusiasm for crafts will be long remembered. Although she will be greatly missed, her family and friends find solace in the beautiful memories they shared with her, celebrating a life well-lived and a person well-loved.
Although the world may have lost a brilliant soul, Jackie’s spirit will forever continue to grace those who had the blessing of knowing her. She lived her life fully and inspired others to do the same through her work, her creativity, and her dedication to her family. Jacqueline R. Meuer may no longer walk amongst us, but her influence will be seen in every lovingly stitched crochet piece and sparkly diamond painting left behind. Jackie’s memory will forever live on in the hearts and minds of all those she touched during her earthly journey.
