He was born March 5, 1936, son of Raymond and Helen (Jackson) Francour. After graduating from high school Jerry worked at Badger Paper Mill.
He will be remembered for his love of sports, hunting and fishing days and his strolls down the streets of Peshtigo where he got to meet and know many people. Jerry loved chocolate covered cherries and always had a smile for his visitors and nurses.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Joseph (Agnes) (Carrie) Francour; maternal grandparents, Edward (Minnie) Jackson; his father, Raymond Francour; mother, Helen Francour-Peterson; step-father, John Peterson; a nephew, Joshua C. Seymour; brother & sister-in-law, Robert (Betty) Francour; step-brother & sister-in-law, Jack (Sue) Peterson; step-sister, Marge Lacount and many Aunts, Uncles and cousins.
A Memorial Service will be held in the Spring of 2021. Berth & Rosenthal Funeral Home of Peshtigo is assisting the family. We wish to thank the Rennes East staff for all the wonderful care given to Jerry over the years.
