Jeanette "Babe" L. (Bruette) Klose, 55, of Breed, passed away Thursday, Oct. 4, 2019 at her home.
Born Jan. 6, 1964 in Shawano, to Louie and Jeanette (Boyd) Bruette, she was the youngest of four daughters and attended Gillett School. In 1981, she met Butch Trepanier and they spent 37 years raising their family outside of Gillett. She also was a lead supervisor at Aarrowcast in Shawano and cooked at Country Roads Diner in Gillett.
In 2012, they moved to Breed where they ran a successful greenhouse for five years. She had a green thumb and enjoyed running the greenhouse. She also enjoyed camping, cookouts, bonfires, country music, a back road cruise in the summertime and running the greenhouse, but mostly loved time with her family.
She ended all conversations with "I love you". There was nothing she wouldn't do for those she loved and especially liked watching her grandchildren play and grow.
