Jeanne Marie Rivard, of Chicago, passed away unexpectedly on Friday May 17, 2019 in Chicago, IL. at the age of 57 years.

She was born on November 16, 1961 in Ashland to Edward F. and Alice (nee Dick) Rivard. Jeanne was a graduate of Menomonee Falls High School Class of 1979 and Class of 1983 graduate of Mount Mary College in Interior Design. She was employed as an Account Executive at Forward Space, in Chicago, IL.

Jeanne is survived by her mother Alice, siblings; Edward (Donna), James (Michelle) and Rosanne (Thomas) Nosacek, God Mother of Jacob, Tyler, Jamie and David Rivard, Evan Nosacek, Alexandra Wetzel, and Ashley Putnam-Murry, loving Aunt of; Jacob, Luke, and Eric Rivard, Ben, Tyler, Nick, Jamie, Michael, David, John Paul, Joe, Augustine, Regina Rivard, Evan, Eli, Brea, Rebekah and Isaac Nosacek. She is further survived by other relatives and friends. Jeanne was preceded in death by her father Edward and nephews Samuel and Simon Nosacek.

Being a constant companion to her mom and dad throughout her life, Jeanne had an incredible love for family. No matter what, she was always there for them with following through with whatever was needed.

She lived her Catholic Faith through her true vocation which was “Love of Neighbor”, a gift she fervently practiced.

She had a most generous heart with her gift of hospitality and an ardent love of making Christmas cookies. She took joy in seeing others happy.

With a child-like spirit she had a jovial laugh and enjoyed singing, was a voracious reader, and loved simply visiting, making you the center of attention. She loved her dog, Bingo, as if it were her only child, though her God-children were the really special ones in her life. She would treat them each to a special trip upon their graduation from 8th grade.

Being an interior designer was another love of hers as she worked tirelessly seeking to bless those she worked for along with never failing to provide input to her family with home design thoughts.
Rest in peace dear Jeanne, you will surely be missed.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 12:00 pm on Saturday May 25th at St Peter Catholic Church (200 E. Washington St. Slinger, WI 53086.) with Fr. Richard Stoffel presiding. Visitation will be at the church on Saturday from 10:00 am until 11:45 am. Interment will follow at New St Peter Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, Memorials to the Charity of your choice, or to family are appreciated.

My name is Lisa Carrigan and I am a friend, a fellow Interior Designer, and a customer of Jeanne's for several years now. Jeanne was the best, the best furniture dealer representative a girl could ask for! She was thorough, paid attention to the details, and was a problem solver. She was uplifting, kind hearted, and loved a lot of the same things I do. I am honored to have worked with her for 20-25 yrs. now (I don't know how long exactly, but its been quite a number of years). I trusted her judgment and recommendations and I will miss her both personally and professionally. May she walk without pain, and accompany Bingo on new adventures in heaven.

My dear JR, you will forever be in my heart and in my thoughts and prayers. We have known each other and worked closely for over 20 years, and I will truly miss you. You were more like my family, and I am happy that I've always expressed to you how much you meant to me, and you did likewise. I will miss your kind words of encouragement in whatever we discussed, I will miss your kindness; when I took my rotator cuff surgery, you always called me to find out how I was doing and encouraged me to continue my PT. We laughed and cried together, and we were always there to lean on each other and give words of encouragement and advice. I miss you greatly, and I will forever have you in my thoughts and my prayers my dear friend, I know that we will see each other again up in heaven. I know that you are now with your dad and your precious Bingo Boys, take care until we meet again!

Love and Thoughtfulness,
Your Friend Always,
