Janice Diane (Samuelson) Berg, Grand Rapids, MN
Simply known as Jan, she was a joy on earth, went to meet Jesus on May 13, 2019 at the age of 79. Jan has gone to be with her husband David, her parents, sister Lorraine and former husband Joe Arsenault. She leaves behind many who loved her. Four children and their spouses: Debbie (Dale) Peterson, Cindy (Randy) Luoma, Cheri (Dode) Steinhart and Mark (Bethy Whiteford) Arsenault. She will be missed by grandsons Joe and August Arsenault. And fondly remembered by niece and nephews: Kathy, Larry and Bruce Nelson and their families. Also missing her is Charlie, her latest adopted dog.
Jan retired from the Itasca County Health and Human Services after 27 years. She was a long standing and active member of the Grand Rapids Eagles Club.
Jan was known to some as the Stubborn Swede and to many as a helpful friend when there was a need. She loved to drive, not to ride, if she was in a car she was behind the wheel. Jan loved dogs, enjoyed crossword puzzles, and always had mini Reese’s peanut butter cups on hand.
Please join family and friends in remembering Jan. Share a story and a smile or a hug and a tear. We will gather at the Eagles Club in Grand Rapids, MN on June 23, 2019 from 12:00 to 2:00.
