Obituary for Jacqualine “Jacquie” Guest Jacqualine “Jacquie” Guest, 65, passed away August 28, 2018. Although most recently a resident of Green Bay, pieces of her heart also remain in San Antonio, Chicago, Los Angeles, Flagstaff, or any of the numerous places where she had lived or loved to call home. Jacquie is the daughter of Verdelma Mae (Smith) Guest, who provided her strong will and sharp wit, and the late Ben Jack Guest, who inspired her love of Willie Nelson, George Strait, and all things classic country. In addition to her mother, Jacquie is survived by her husband of 28 years, Paul Mueller, her loving children, son Patrick Reynolds and daughter Morgan Mueller, her brother Ben Guest, and her beloved dog Samson. Jacquie is also survived by many extended family members and countless friends. From her early years until the end of her life, Jacquie’s free spirit and love for the world left a lasting impact and inspired those that she knew. She loved to travel, had a passion for music and the arts, and was an avid reader. She was also an artist herself. Her love of the Southwest and the West Coast shone through in the many beautiful paintings she created in her life and displayed throughout her home. Always an advocate of justice and equality, Jacquie dedicated the last 18 years of her life to the needs of children and teenagers as a school psychologist. Through the compassion, strength and determination she lived by, Jacquie constantly fought for the best interest and well-being of the children that she loved, most recently at the Webster and Doty Elementary Schools in Green Bay. Of the numerous things Jacquie loved in her life, the most important were her home and her family. Wherever she lived, Jacquie created a sanctuary of love and a peaceful nature. Whether planting in her beautiful garden, cooking in her kitchen, or painting in her studio, her happiness and light were evident to all. While bladder cancer had been a part of Jacquie’s life for the last 14 years, she always minimized it through her sheer will and determination. She didn’t just go to battle with the disease; she beat it senselessly into submission! While the victories were too short lived, they did allow those that knew and loved her to temporally forget its presence. Jacquie would credit her strength, peacefulness, and kind spirit to practicing Soka Gakkai International Buddhism. She lived by the saying “thought, word, and deed,” to always encourage positivity in her own life and the lives of those around her. A celebration of Jacquie’s life will take place in the near future. In remembrance of Jacquie, donations can be made in her name to the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network, www.bcan.org/donate/ or to the Webster Elementary Art Smart Program (2101 S Webster Avenue, Green Bay, WI 54301).
