Obituary for Connie Louise Jansen

Connie L. Jansen was born on September 12, 1942, in Lake Park, IA, the daughter of Wilbur and June (Schlapkohl) Thomsen. She grew up in Round Lake, MN and graduated from Round Lake High School in 1960. Connie married Delbert Wickstrom and they had two children, Pam & Dean. She was a homemaker up until 1977. After her divorce, she began working for Prudential Insurance. She then went on to earn her liberal arts degree graduating with honors from Worthington Community College in 1982. In 1987, Connie married James Jansen and they later divorced. Her greatest accomplishments in life were being a mother and later becoming a grandmother. Her grandchildren were the most important part of her life, and she devoted most of her time to caring for them. Connie was known to her grandchildren as “Rama Honey”.
Connie enjoyed reading V. C. Andrews and Stephen King books, fishing at Indian Lake catching bullheads, playing Bingo, and going to the Casino with her best friend Kathy. She also enjoyed watching Tiger Woods playing golf and the Minnesota Twins "Twinkies" on TV. Connie was Elvis Presley’s number one fan. She loved collecting anything Garfield. Connie spent her days putting together puzzles, playing cards, board games, bird watching and of course feeding them. The friends that she made along the way were more than just friends - they were her family. Connie passed away on Saturday, December 7, 2019, at the age of 77, at Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls, SD.
Connie is survived by her brother, Rollie (Jolene) Thomsen of Round Lake, MN; sister, Jeanne (Denny) Rutzen of Pequot Lakes, MN; daughter, Pam (Bob) Trobec of Sartell, MN; son, Dean (Sarah) Wickstrom of Worthington, MN; grandchildren, Heather, Jenn, Erika, Jordan, Dylan, Tyler, Joe, Peyton, Breanna, Mariah, and Brandon, and great grandchildren, Salena, Khloe, Cruz, James, Sammy, Liliana, Kane, and one on the way. She was preceded in death by her parents, Wilbur and June Thomsen.
Memorial services will be held on Saturday, December 14, 2019, at 2:00 p.m., at the First Presbyterian Church in Round Lake, MN, with Pastor Robert Bartlett officiating. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service at the church. Burial will be held in the Round Lake Cemetery.
