Yuldine Bellmore1931 - 2020
Yuldine M. Bellmore, age 89 of Rogers City went to be with her Lord and Savior on June 13, 2020. She passed away peacefully of natural causes at Medilodge of
Rogers City, filled with love from her family.
Born on January 28, 1931 to the late Stanley and Mary (Matwiyoff) Jachcik, she was raised on First Street along with five siblings, often visiting the family business, Stan’s Service. As a high school gal, she took pride in being involved with the RCHS school paper and being a proofreader for the Advance. She also worked at the popular Cozy Corner during her teenage years. She graduated from Rogers City High School in 1949. She married Leslie (Pete) Bellmore on a summer’s day, July 15, 1950 at 9am at St Ignatius Church with her cousin, the late Bishop Kenneth Povish officiating. They celebrated with an evening reception at Greka’s Hall, complete with violin playing. Together they had five children and she was the ultimate stay at home mom, like many of her friends whose husbands sailed the Great Lakes. They enjoyed 47 years of marriage and he preceded her in death on November 8, 1997. Being a faithful letter writer, she was able to meet her lifelong pen pal from Canada. As a snowbird in Florida, she faithfully kept in touch with her grandchildren and often their classmates and teachers. She also enjoyed the many sporting events her grandchildren were involved in. She wielded her camera wherever she went and shared her many photos with family and friends. Her family will always have great memories of picnics at Ocqueoc Falls and Grand Lake cottage. She was a devout member of St. Ignatius Catholic Church and a member of their Rosary Society. A special thank you to Medilodge of Rogers City, The Brook of Cheboygan and Hospice of Michigan.
