Yvonne “Jeanne” (Hale) Duchscher Apr. 16, 1952 – Oct. 10, 2020 Yvonne “Jeanne” (Hale) Duchscher, age 68 of Buf- falo, MN passed away Oc- tober 10, 2020. She was born on April 16, 1952 in Ghent, West Virginia to Billie Ralph Hale, Sr and Dora Bog- gess. She was raised in Rugby, North Dakota by her aunts, Jean and Alma Hale. Jeanne attended high school in Rugby, and graduated with the class of 1970. She furthered her education by briefly at- tending college in Minot. On March 6, 1971, Jeanne was united in mar- riage to Timothy Duchscher in their home- town. The two had met when Tim returned home from serving with the Un- ited States Marine Corps. Following their marriage, they moved to Flint, Michigan where their daughter, Cindy was born. Their son, Chris was born not long after in 1974. The family then moved back to North Dakota in 1975, and made a few more moves to other cities in North Dakota and South Dakota before they even- tually settled in Buffalo, MN in 2016 to be closer to family. Jeanne had worked as the city finance officer in Parker, South Dakota until her retirement in 2016. She was quite proud to be the 2013 President of the South Dakota Municipal Government association. In her free time, she loved baking delicious treats for friends and fam- ily, crocheting and knit- ting scarves, afghans and hats for presents, hosting dinner parties, and was an avid card player. Jeanne loved Christmas, and made it special for every- one. She’d go all out with her festive decorations and create her own winter wonderland in the house. She was a very proud Ma- rine wife and a constant supporter of the Minneso- ta Vikings. She had a bubbly and outgoing personality, and loved a good laugh and conversation. She espe- cially cherished spending time with her family creating special memories. Jeanne is preceded in death by her father and aunts. She is survived by her loving husband, Tim; children, Chris (Joey) and Cindy; grandson, Jackson; pet, Buddy; and many other relatives and friends. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for dona- tions to the American Cancer Society be made in her memory.
