Beverly A. “Bev” Isaacson

Beverly A. Isaacson, of Kieler, Wisconsin, completed her earthly journey on March 16, 2020, at home, surrounded by her loving family.  To celebrate Bev’s life, a private family celebration will be held at a later date.  The Tri-State Cremation Center is humbly serving Bev’s family.


Bev was born on March 25, 1938, in Wadena, Minnesota, to Neale C. and June K.(Bauer) Leete.  She was the oldest of nine children.  She was united in marriage to Theodore E. “Ike” Isaacson, and together they had one daughter, Tammy.


Bev worked at the Dubuque Packing Company for over 20 years.  Following their closing, she worked at Swiss Colony.  When she found free time, she could always be found in her craft room.  Her sewing, quilting and general crafting abilities were second to none.  Bev always looked forward to spending some time each summer “up north”, visiting with family and “quilt shop hopping” with her sisters.  Her dog Toby, and newest addition, Millie, brought her great joy and company.  


Bev will be best remembered for her love of family, especially her daughter, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  


Those left to cherish her memory include,


her loving daughter,

Tammy (Mike)Hafeman,  East Dubuque, IL;


her 2 adored grandchildren,

Joshua (Ashley Moore) Eggers, Wichita, KS,

and Jennifer (Cody) Sweet, East Dubuque, IL;


her “perfect” great-grandchildren,

Henry, Isaac and Anastasia Eggers, Wichita, KS,

and Abraham and Augustus Sweet, East Dubuque, IL;


her siblings,

Sharon Poupard,

Susan (Martin Behrens) Pfeifer,

Mary (Jon) Frankovich,

James Leete,

Lani (Robert)Boyer,


and Kay DeBaere.  


along with and numerous nieces and nephews.


She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Ike; her brother, Charles Leete; her brothers-in-law, Leonard Pfeifer and Jospeh DeBarere; and a sister-in-law, Susan Leete.


The family would like to thank Hospice of Dubuque, especially Melanie, Amy and Jessica, for all of the care and compassion they gave to Bev and her family in these last months.

    I am so very sorry to learn of Bev’s passing. Always, when on occasion I would run into her mostly when she helped take care of her Mom June, she always was so cordial and always treated me with kindness and respect. My most sincere sympathies to your entire family.

    Tammy and family,

    I’m so sorry to learn of your moms passing. I worked with your mom from 1988-1996 at “the Pack” in the Industrial Engineering Department. She was like a 2nd mother to me. She listened to my stories, offered advice, taught me how to cross stitch,and shared recipes with me. She told me many stories about you, Josh and Jenny. I always knew how proud of you all she was, and how much she loved you. You are in my thoughts and prayers as you navigate this difficult time. God Bless, Kris Theobald Link
