Jeanie, age 72, passed away on Jan 24, 2020, at St. Cloud Hospital. She was taken much too soon and will be forever missed. Jeanie was born to Paul and Amelia Hansen on Mar 25, 1947, in Plymouth, MN. She received her bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in hospital administration at the Univ. of MN, going on to spend many successful years in the field. Her work took her out west, where she developed a passion for arrowhead and fossil hunting. She spent many of her adult summers at a family lake house and served as president of the Horseshoe Lake Association, working diligently to help preserve the integrity of the lake. Her house in the Pequot Lakes area was her haven. She loved nature and wildlife and adored spending her time in the midst of it all. Jeanie was an avid reader, adored her pets and loved to garden and landscape. Jeanie is survived by her daughter Mindy (Shawn) Sanders; her grandchildren Jessica (Quin) Kamaka, and Alex Johnston; and her step-grandson Spencer Sanders; her great-grandson Keanu Kamaka; her brother Paul (Kim) Hansen, Jr.; and her nephews and niece Tim (Lisa), Corey (Meni), and Jennifer.
Mom, you were my rock, and my world will not be the same without you in it.
