Jeanne F. Dougher

December 10, 1929 - May 5, 2020

Jeanne F. Dougher (“Lil’ Bit”), 90, of Beaumont, Texas passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 5, 2020. She was born on December 10, 1929, to Veronica Yokubenas Freismuth and Carl A. Freismuth, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Jeanne was predeceased by her husband and love of her life, William E. (“Bill”) Dougher.

She lived life to the fullest, as all who knew her can attest. “Daylight’s burning, things to do!” was her mantra. You often found her in her art studio, on the tennis courts, tending her yard, saltwater fishing, sunbathing with a good book, working tirelessly for the Women’s Shelter or, her absolute favorite, spinning on the dance floor.

Jeanne’s children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her pride and joy. The legacy of Jeanne’s kind and compassionate spirit, exceptional artistic talent, passion for dancing and zest for life will live on through them. She truly was our dancing queen.

Jeanne is survived by her son, Pat Dougher and his wife, Bess, of Grapevine; daughters, Sherry Brown and her husband, Rick, of Kingwood and Lauren Randolph and her husband, John, of Beaumont; son, Tim Dougher and his wife, Julie, of Houston; grandchildren, Brian Dougher and his wife, Randi; Brad Dougher; Ryan Carreño and her husband, Johann; Katie Brown; Lindsay Zambardino and her husband, Mark; Jordan Randolph and his fiancé, Kaitlynn Duplechin; Lewis Dougher; Caroline Dougher; and Clint Dougher; great-grandchildren, Logan Zambardino, Madison Zambardino, Evelyn Dougher, Wesley Dougher, and Isabella Dougher.

There are no words to say, except that I truly adored you. You lived life to the fullest till the very end. I’m grateful to have not only known you but to have been included in your life. Laure, Sherry, Pat and Tim (that’s how she called your names out to me) I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for entrusting me with your special gift that you called “Mom”. She will forever be in my heart.

Jeanne was one of the sweetest ladies I had ever met. She always had a smile on her face and gave the best hugs. She will be greatly missed by all, but she is dancing in the clouds and on the best dance floor anyone could ask for.

To all the Dougher family, my thoughts are with you at this time. What a true blessing your mother was. She was not just an incredibly beautiful woman, she was talented, loving and as full of life as anybody I have ever known. The many days and nights I spent in your home growing up are part of my most cherished memories. Jeanne Always had a smile on her face and open arms to greet people who came to your home. How lucky were you to have had such an incredible woman to call Mom. I was just as lucky to have known her as well. Your dad was certainly waiting for her at Heaven’s gate, ready to take his beautiful bride back into his arms as they both continue to look down on you all. In such pride as to the legacy they left behind. Keep on dancing Jeanne, the angels will love learning your dance moves for sure.
