Jeanette Ann Hegg

Jeanette Ann Hegg was born on December 19, 1957, in Rapid City, SD, to Russell and Edith (Furst) Hegg. Due to Russell’s military service, the family moved to many communities until settling in Canby in 1971. They later moved to rural Minneota. Jeanette attended school in Minneota and graduated from Minneota High School. She then lived in Mankato for a time before returning to Minneota in 1987. She lived with her mother until her death in 1999. Jeanette then moved to the Marshall Square Apartments in Marshall. She worked for Advanced Opportunities in Marshall. Jeanette loved animals and babies, especially her nieces and nephews. She was very talented with crafts and enjoyed knitting and crochet. In 2007, she converted to the Catholic Faith and received her Sacraments at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church. She belonged to the Order of the Secular Franciscans. She moved to the Minneota Manor in August, 2016, due to health reasons. Jeanette died on Sunday, December 25, 2016, at the Minneota Manor in Minneota. She is survived by her siblings Susan (and Chad) Bagley of Minneota, Sandra (and Rodney) Kolhei of Cottonwood, Bonnie (and Chad) Treloar of Boise, ID, Tammy Mercie (and Leonard Bronstad) of Tracy, MN, Cindy (and Adam) Cavazos of Marshall, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, brothers-in-law Jeff Mercie and Ben Fox, and fiancé, Ron Kack. Memorials preferred to Prairie Home Hospice of Marshall, or Holy Redeemer Catholic Church

Our sympathy and prayers to the family of Jeanette. What a wonderful, sweet lady. We have always enjoyed her smile, generosity, and honesty. For many years we have been the recipient of numerous greeting cards, and of course - a special Christmas card. We were just admiring the beautiful snow globe nativity that was a gift from Jeanette (in 1999). Jeanette enjoyed being part of the Marshall Square Apartments community. She loved to dress up for special events and socializing. She expressed faith as her strength. She so loved her family and shared news and stories. We are grateful to have known her. May she rest in peace.

I was honored to be able to get to know Jeanette thru my job at H.S.I. She was such a sweet heart. She always wanted everyone to be happy and love one another. Her smile melted hearts, and would light up the room to those that knew her and complete strangers. Jeanette was one of the sweetest ladies I ever supported. She was so talented with making crafts, she loved everyone, and smiled all the time. Even when she did not feel well she smiled. Her family meant the world to her. She will be greatly missed. Blessed be her memory.
