Brigitte immigrated to the United States when she was in her early twenties. She felt that the United States was more like “home” than any other country she had been through.

Brigitte’s family immigrated to Chicago, Illinois where she met her husband. She worked at Jordan’s Nursing Home in Bridgman for thirty-five years and drove for Three Oaks Ambulance for sixteen years. She cherished her family and her grandkids meant the world to her. She loved to laugh, bowl, and play pinochle. Brigitte loved people and had a compassionate nature. She was famous for her apple pies. She was always able to find the positives and never let anything bring her down.

Pacovsky of South Bend, Indiana, Ingrid Marie Pacovsky of Three Oaks; three grandchildren, Courtney Adkins, Morgan (Daniel Crowel) Adkins, Zachary Adkins, all of Three Oaks; one brother, Edward Quint of Canada; and a host of nieces and nephews.
