Juanita Beeck

Aug 02, 1937 - Jun 28, 2023


Juanita Johanna Beeck of Sheboygan, Wisconsin went home to be with the Lord on June 28, 2023. Her family would like to extend thanks to the staff of Meadow View Nursing home and Sharon Richardson Hospice Care for their support and compassion.

She was born on August 2, 1937, in Ironwood, Michigan to the late Giocchino and Giovanina (Ursini) Alessandroni.

Juanita graduated from Luther L. Wright High School in 1955. She also attended Lakeshore Technical College in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

On August 17, 1957, Frederick H Beeck and Juanita were married at St. Ambrose Catholic Church in Ironwood, Michigan.

Juanita was an industrious and altruistic woman of her time. She held a variety of jobs throughout her working career – including 18 years at Plymouth Industrial Products/Ametek. She served as a Steward and Shop Chairman and was actively involved in the local United Furniture Workers union advocating for better working conditions for women. Even while raising a family during the day, she devoted her evenings to work.

Juanita loved supporting organizations that were dear to her. As a young girl, Juanita was involved in scouts. Later, as her own children followed in her footsteps, she served as a den mother and an assistant scout leader. As a woman of strong faith, Juanie was active as a Eucharistic Minister at Immaculate Conception Parish, a member of Partners for St. Nicholas Hospital, and St. Anne Christian Mothers.

Juanita was an artist. Although she was too humble to describe herself as such, she leaves behind her masterpieces. In high school, she created delicate fashion sketches that you might expect to see in a publication. Her porcelain dolls – exquisite and lifelike – will serve as reminders of Juanie’s passion and gentle touch. Juanie relaxed by painting watercolor pictures, knitting scarves, completing crossword puzzles, reading books, and attending the productions at the Sheboygan Theatre Company. Her favorite pastime was being in the company of her family and friends.

Juanie’s greatest loves were her husband, her children, and her family. Her kitchen’s focal point was a mural of photographs proudly displaying her loved ones and life’s biggest milestones. Graduations, weddings, gatherings at the lake, new additions to the family; the mural grew with her family. Each day, Juanie was surrounded by the people and memories most precious to her.

Juanita leaves behind her loving husband “Fritz” of 66 years; and their four children, John (Debra) Beeck, Southlake, TX, Philip Beeck, Sheboygan, Joel (Julie) Beeck, Sheboygan Falls, Susan (Andrew) Jones, Kiel, WI.

Her grandchildren include Valerie (James) Cummings, Sheboygan, Paul Beeck, Sheboygan, Michael Beeck, Sheboygan, Jennifer (Jeffrey) Boldig, Temple, TX, Brian Jones, St Petersburg, FL, Amanda Beeck, Southlake TX, Abbey Beeck, Southlake, TX. Step grandchildren, Brylee and Gracyn Adams and great grandchildren, Angelina Beeck-Cummings, Vanessa Beeck-Cummings, Caitlyn Cummings, James Cummings, Landen Beeck, Ava Boldig and Quinn Boldig.

Her siblings include Glorian Erhman, Shirley (Aaron) Mertes, Ronald Beeck, Judy (Jim) Krolnik, Rosie (Dave) Baranczyk, Don (Andrea) Beeck, and Mary (Jerry) Miller.

She is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Preceding her in death: her parents, father and mother-in-law Willard and Clara Beeck; sisters and brothers, Anna (Anton) Colasacco, Elizabeth (Otto) Heino, Irma (Reuben) Klueger, Louis (Jackie) Alexandroni, James (Maria) Alexandria, Mary (Harold) Wallenius; brothers and sisters-in-law, Bernice and James Gruenke, Jeanne Beeck, Alvera Beeck, George Erhman, Anthony (Virginia) Alexandroni, Harold (Leona Weiman) Beeck and Donald Welsch.

Juanita will always be remembered for helping people in times of need. No matter how busy she was, she made time for them. She believed that out of all the gifts she received in her life, the most precious were her children.

Family and friends may gather at the Reinbold-Novak Funeral Home, 1535 S. 12th Street, Sheboygan on Tuesday, July 18, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.

Her children will forever remember how often she would say to them:

“I Love you More!!!”


Date: Tuesday Jul 18, 2023
Time: 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
Location: Reinbold-Novak Funeral Home [map]

While I didn’t have the opportunity to meet Juanita, my thought and prayers go out to the family and my colleague John Beeck as they mourn the loss of Juanita.

Auntie Juanie will be missed so much. I will miss her big hugs and all the love she gives to everyone around her. My prayers and love to Uncle Fritz, Phil, John, Joey and Susie. This isn't goodbye, Auntie Juanie, this is until we meet again in our heavenly kingdom.

Aunty Juanie was dearly loved. She was a wonderful person. We are sending our love to the family as they send her to eternal life. We shall meet again.

Our deepest sympathy to my cousins, John, Joe, Phil and Susan and Uncle Fritz. Auntie will be missed by many. All the good days of laughter and family get togethers are held close to my heart forever. The song I sing for you: "God must need another angel around the throne tonight, your love lives on inside of me and I will hold on tight, It's not my place to question, Only God knows why, I'm just jealous of the angels around the throne tonight".

Shirley Cummings

Everytime I've seen Juanita she had a smile on her face and kind words. Always asking how you are. I will miss her at the grandkids birthday party's.

I thank God for Juanie's life. She was always a special part or our family. She took care of mom and dad when it was their time to go home to Jesus. She was also a special care giver of Alvera our youngest sister. She had a wonderful caring heart. I will miss you dear sister in law. I love you more also.

I’m so sorry, my Aunt was a beautiful person, I just talk her not long ago, and as usual made me laugh. She is with all her sisters and brothers. One of her brothers, my Father James Alexandria, were always teasing each other. I will miss our phone calls. Love to all that loved her.

Joel Beeck

I love you more. Tell we meet again. Loved always your son Joel
