OSWEGO, NY – Jessie A. (Beginski) Nearbin, 81, a lifelong resident of Oswego, passed away Thursday morning March 19, 2015, at her home.
She was born in Oswego and was the daughter of the late Albert and Jessie (Charlotte) Andrews Beginski.

Jessie was well-known in Oswego for her culinary skills that she began at the age of 16 and continued until she retired her apron.
None will remember her culinary skills more than her family who always gathered to enjoy grandma’s famous mashed potatoes and when the table was cleared and the dishes done, the adults would spend many hours playing mom’s favorite card game, pinochle.
