Jacqueline Castelbuono

December 18, 1919 — April 22, 2016

Jacqueline Cinquemani Castelbuono, 96, of Berrien Springs, died April 22, 2016, at Jenny’s Place in Berrien Springs.

She was born December 18, 1919, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the daughter of Paul and Nancy Cinquemani. Her only sibling, Roy Cinquemani, was killed at the age of 26 in a plane crash while serving in the United States Air Force. Jacqueline married Anthony Castelbuono on June 30, 1940, in Chicago, Illinois. They celebrated 55 years of marriage. Anthony passed away in May 1996.

Not only was Jacqueline a supportive partner in her husband’s pastoral ministry spanning four decades, she also lovingly cared for her two children, Marilyn and Roy, and developed a successful career as an elementary educator. During her last decade of teaching, Jacqueline taught reading, writing, and mathematics in the adult education program in Benton Harbor, and often spoke of those years as her most rewarding years as a teacher.

She was a faithful member for 51 years at Pioneer Memorial Church on the campus of Andrews University, her alma mater for both Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees.

Jacqueline is survived by her daughter, Marilyn, of St. Joseph; her son, Roy, and his wife, Audrey, of St. Joseph; three grandsons and their wives: Anthony (Michelle) Castelbuono of Nashville, Tennessee, Andre (Jennifer) Castelbuono of Knoxville, Tennessee, and Michael (Erin) Castelbuono of Dayton, Ohio; and two great-grandsons, Anthony and Andrew Castelbuono of Nashville.
