Jacqueline "Jackie" J. Borgmeyer of Saint Charles, MO, passed away at the age of 83 on Saturday, April 20, 2019. She was preceded in death by her parents, Otto and Helen “Dolly” Oelklaus.

Jackie is survived by her beloved husband, Thomas L. Borgmeyer; her children, Susan M. Garland, Ellen J. (Jack) Parker, Donald T. Borgmeyer, and Karen D. (David) Toigo; her siblings, Dorothy (Walter) Kolkmeier and Donald (MaryAnn) Oelklaus; her grandchildren, Jill (Brad) Blanc, Andrew Allen, Michael (Maggie) Toigo, T.J. Allen, Sam Toigo, and Samantha Borgmeyer; her great-grandchild, Helen Weber. She was a loving aunt, cousin, and friend to many.

Jackie enjoyed a successful professional career that spanned close to thirty-five years with organizations such as Rexall Drugs, Small Fry Fashions, and St. Joseph’s Health Center. What she loved most was the time she spent with her kids, grandkids, and Tom, the love of her life with whom she enjoyed many hours of sitting and swinging on their porch swing. She and Tom often traveled internationally but also cherished their trips to Branson where they vacationed by themselves or with their grandkids.

Jackie was a distinguished member of the St. Charles community. She belonged to many service organizations, and won many awards for her volunteer service such as the 2003 St. Jude Hospital Diana Award and the 2009 Lifetime Distinguished Service award given by the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce. Jackie generously donated over 5700 hours of her time to St. Joseph Health Center where she did everything from helping as a nurse’s aide to lifting the spirits of hospitalized children by visiting them as a holiday character or clown. Her volunteer work also included other organizations such as the St. Charles Convention and Visitors Bureau and the St. Charles Volunteers in Medicine Clinic. Jackie’s fantastic personality led her to the St. Charles Optimist’s Club where she was the Optimist of the Year in 2002 and 2013.

Friends and family will always remember her kindness, strong Catholic faith, and sense of humor. Jackie just loved to have fun and wanted nothing more than to make people happy. She was a very good and beautiful soul and will be dearly missed.

Contributions in Jackie’s name can be made to the St. Vincent DePaul Society or to Volunteers in Medicine.

    Dear Borgmeyer Family,
    I have been cherishing all the wonderful memories of being in Jackie’s presence and all the fun times our families shared! She never missed an opportunity to try to make a memory! Like every time I moved, she would bring the wine, bread, and salt for the housewarming gift. She spread joy in every environment she was in and I don’t remember a time she wasn’t smiling her sweet smile! Bless you all as you now journey through life without her being present but you’ve been so blessed to have known her as Mom and wife that you can carry her with you always!
    Much love!

      I’m so very sorry to hear of Jackie’s passing. She was such a dear friend to my mother. Their monthly club meetings were a bright spot for as long as I can remember. The rare times I was invited to join the girls was a treasured treat! I’m certain that Jackie and Amy, my mom, are keeping each other in great company.

    Jackie was an Amazing person and I’ll miss that smile! I appreciated her endless hours volunteering at the CVB, entertaining everyone dressed as a clown, or just stopping in the office to say hello. She brought joy to everyone she knew and will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathy to the entire family.

    To all the Borgmeyer family members, please accept my heartfelt condolences for you loss. Being from St. Louis, Tom and Jackie and their whole group of friends enfolded me into Jake’s circle of schoolmates and and that was 60 years ago. I will always remember Jackie’s sweetness and when she smiled her whole face lighted. May God bless you all. Gerry Jacobs (Mrs. Claude “Jake”).

    Ellen-I was so sorry to hear about your mom’s passing. I enjoyed seeing you at Mt. Carmel, and my dad sure loved it, too! Tough week on the second floor. You and your siblings took such great care of your mom. Enjoy all of the shared memories and stories of her! Prayers to all of you.

      Thank you so much for your kind words. I actually miss going up to Mt. Carmel every day. We both know, though, that there are two more angels from the second floor in heaven now. Sympathy and prayers to you and your family from me and mine. May the healing begin.
