The correct email address is: [email protected] Glenn Beaubaire, 98, of Minneapolis, died peacefully in his sleep on February 16th at Jones-Harrison Residence. He would have been 99 in two months on his birthday, April 12th. He was preceded in death by his wife of 72 1/2 years, Helen T. Beaubaire; his parents, Nathan and Ida Cohen; his sister, Esther Blender; and his eldest daughter, Nancy A. Beaubaire (Steve Cohen). He is survived by his children, Susan (Lenny Lichtblau), Bonnie (Kevin Lorensen) and Thomas (Liz Bardon); as well as his grandchildren, Alanna and Lauren Beaubaire and Jay and Nolan Bloyer. Glenn is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews and others whose hearts he touched. He was a devoted and loving husband, father and grandfather with his family always being the top priority in his life. Glenn was born in St. Paul but was raised in Danbury, WI. He received a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Minnesota, although his education was interrupted for over three years by World War II. During the war, Glenn served honorably in both Okinawa, Japan and in Korea and ended his military service as a Sergeant in the Signal Corps. While at the University, Glenn was an active member of Sigma Alpha Mu fraternity where he met the love of his life, Helen. He spent thirty-five years as a food broker in the Twin Cities and was very well respected for his enthusiasm, integrity and his professionalism. Glenn was a beloved son, husband, father, grandfather, father-in law, uncle and a friend to all who knew him in his personal and professional life. He was honest and honorable, good natured and witty. Most of all Glenn was both strong and gentle. The family wants to thank all the devoted staff in Devon Court at Jones-Harrison Residence for the kind-hearted and compassionate care they provided to Glenn and Helen Beaubaire during the final years of their lives. We also want to similarly thank everyone at Interim HealthCare Hospice who worked with Dad these last few weeks to insure his comfort. In the last two years, Glenn lost his wife and his eldest daughter and spent the last eleven months of his life essentially in isolation because of COVID.
