James G. Beery DDS, age 87 of the Town of Crescent, passed away Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018, at his residence, under the care of Ascension Health at Home Hospice and his family. Jim was born in Omaha, Nebraska on Thursday, Aug. 13, 1931, the son of Harvey and Irene (Boul) Beery.

The Beery family moved to Burbank, California where Jim attended elementary school and where he graduated from high school. He proudly served his country in the United States Air Force during the Korean War. He then attended Marquette University and was accepted into their dental school.

The couple married on Nov. 24, 1962 at Church of the Gesu in Milwaukee. The couple moved to Rhinelander where Jim opened his own dental practice. After two years Jim returned to Marquette University where he earned his degree in orthodontics. He then became an orthodontics instructor for four years at Loyola University in Chicago. The family moved back to Rhinelander where Jim had his own orthodontics practice. He retired from orthodontics in 2005.

Lucy, you are in my thoughts. Always felt bad we lost touch. I send prayers since we all know how this feels. You just have to get through it.
