Jennifer Lee

Posted in Lanesboro Obituaries

Jennifer Yvonne Lee, 41, of Lanesboro, and formerly of Crosby, died peacefully at her home surrounded by her family on Sunday, September 18, 2016.

Jennifer was born September 17, 1975 in Crosby to Michael and LeOra (Zenke) Lind. She graduated from Crosby-Ironton High School. She met the love of her life, Mitch Lee, at a country music festival that neither were supposed to be at. It was love at first sight, and less than a month passed between their chance encounter and Jennifer selling her house and moving to Seymour, Iowa, where Mitch was a high school English teacher, to start a life together. Jennifer found a job as a home health aide for Wayne County, and she absolutely loved it. She eventually went back to school, attending Indian Hills Community College and earning her LPN, and took a job as a nurse. Mitch and Jen loved their life in Seymour, but both felt the pull to return closer to home. Six years ago, they moved to the family farm of Mitch’s childhood south of Peterson, Minn., to watch over Mitch’s aging parents. They built a house, got married and had their son, Brogan. Mitch got a teaching job at Chatfield High School, and Jennifer worked as a nurse in Rushford and then Winona until she was diagnosed in January of 2014 with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

Although a city girl by birth, Jennifer truly loved the country life and all of the animals on the farm. She made many new friends, but always maintained strong ties with those from her younger years. If you became her friend, you were her friend for life. Her doctors and nurses became a second family that loved her just as fervently as everyone her life touched. She often spoke fondly about “her girls” on the 6th floor. Jennifer always put everyone else first, and never wanted anyone to make a fuss over her. Her son, Brogan was the beacon that kept the darkness of her pain and suffering from swallowing her. She loved him fiercely and unconditionally and fought through unbelievable odds to stay by his side as long as she could. She will be forever loved and missed by so many.

She is survived by her husband, Mitch; her son, Brogan; her parents, Michael (Rene) Lind and LeOra (Larry) Erickson; two sisters, Amy (Joe) Eberly and Jack Kalvser; parents-in-law Barbara and David Lee; brothers-in-law Mark (Courtney) Lee and Michael (Melissa) Lee; sister-in-law Monica Lee-Ball; nieces and nephews Trinity, Madalyn and Kody Eberly, Gibson Kalvser, Marley Ga .....
