Jane Mary (Hamerlinck) Louwagie was born on December 16, 1937, in Minneota to Alfonce and Elsie (Geurs) Hamerlinck. She was baptized and received her sacraments at St. Edward Catholic Church in Minneota. Jane graduated from Minneota High School in 1955. Following high school, she worked at the bank in Minneota. On February 13, 1957, she married the love of her life, Ernie Louwagie. The couple farmed and raised their family near Green Valley. They shared 61 years together. In 2015, they moved to a condo in Marshall. Jane was an active member of St. Clotilde Catholic Church in Green Valley and sang in the choir. After her children were grown, she worked at the Cottonwood Golf Course & Country Club, Cooks Clothing in Marshall, and for many years worked as a supervisor at Hardeeâs in Marshall and Granite Falls. Jane enjoyed baking, shopping, travelling, and playing cards. She was very social and belonged to a couples and ladies card group. Jane was happiest spending time with her family and friends and âsister timeâ always made her life complete. She also enjoyed going to her grandchildrenâs activities as she was so proud of all of them.

Despite being disabled for the past few years, she seldom complained and continued to love life. Each day she looked forward to visitors. The family would especially like to thank Janeâs family and friends who visited her and helped to make her quality of life so meaningful and special. She filled our lives with kindness, laughter, and love and her passing will leave a tremendous void. Blessed be her memory.
The family requests that your presence and prayers of the Rosary be your gift.
