THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Beatrice A. Talbot
Beatrice Ann Talbot, 71, of Waupaca, formerly of Weyauwega, passed away at her home on Friday, May 2.
Born June 5, 1942 in Chicago, she was the second of three daughters born to Steven and Ella (Koskie) Grishow. She graduated from St. Anthony de Padua School of Nursing in Chicago. On Oct. 8, 1964, she married Harold E. Talbot and they had two children. He preceded her in death on April 17, 1987. The couple resided in Schiller Park, Ill., before relocating to Weyauwega in 1975. After her husband died, she moved to Waupaca. She was a nurse for over five decades with the majority of those years at the Wisconsin Veterans Home in King. After retiring from the Veterans Home, she worked at Bethany Pines in Waupaca. She was passionate about nursing and her patients, especially the elderly, making friends with them.
She enjoyed gardening, crocheting, sitting at her kitchen table with friends and family, chatting over a cup of coffee and treats and finding time to crochet an afghan for family. She will be remembered as a lady who didnt seem to know the word no, always putting needs of others before her own and was somewhat stalwart. She loved all the dogs she cared for, lastly her faithful companion, Charlie. She was supportive of her children and was proud to be a nanie to her two grandchildren.
She is survived by a daughter, Cindy (David) Westenberg, of Oconto; a son Rob (Betsey) Talbot, of Alma; two grandchildren; two sisters, Gale Ladubec, of Weyauwega and Gwynn (Dick) Schroeder, of Waupaca; nieces; nephews; many other relatives and friends.
