Mary Jo Jansen

Mary Jo Jansen (Loons), age 46 of Blaine.  Another one of the strongest women this world has seen was tragically taken from us on February 8, 2019, the evening of our mother’s funeral.  Mary was the epitome of the word beautiful.  She was tough yet tender, strong yet caring.  Mary loved her children, family and friends.  She made sure everyone had whatever they needed before thinking of herself.  Mary was gorgeous inside and out.  Always quick witted with a joke or one liner to make you laugh.  She was a proud member of the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa and loved spending time up north.  Mary was fun loving and enjoyed good times especially on a beach, at a lake or around a campfire.  Preceded in death by mother, Sharon Loons; grandparents, Herbert and Lorraine Langner and Ben and Julia Loons; as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins.  Survived by children, Bradley, his girlfriend Nicole, and Emma; father, Richard Loons; siblings, Steve Bolander, Chris Bolander, Beth (PJ) Johnson and Ben (Shannon) Loons; sister-in-law, Shelley (John) Rowley; many nieces, nephews, cousins and countless friends. We will all miss you very much.  “IT’S NOT GOOD BYE, BUT SEE YOU LATER.”  A further service will be held in the future at Holy Family Church in Cloquet.

O Loving Father and Savior, send your angels to carry the soul of your servant from this earth to the heavenly place of eternal and everlasting life.
