Janet Claire Anfinsen
October 12, 1937 – February 2, 2021
83 of Victoria, MN passed away peacefully on February 2, 2021.
Born on October 12, 1937 to June Claire and Ernest Jenson, she is survived by her loving husband Don; children, Steve (Danette) Kittleson, Julie Claire Kittleson, and Jeff (Jamie) Kittleson; grandchildren, Adam, Kiara Claire, Ben, and Jacob; and step-grandchildren, Lizzie and Sam.
Jan was preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Margorie Maynard; and her mother and father-in-law, Gertrude and Joseph Anfinsen, who loved her like a daughter.
Jan’s love for life came through in so many ways. Animals were always a part of her life, starting with the family farm, and it seems she was never without a dog or two (or three.) She loved orchids, cardinals, so many quilts, needlepoint, Christmas cookies, snowmen, lefse, the Twins, friends, boating, cooking, her church, a good hymn, and the music of Dolly Parton, Elvis and so many more. Most of all, she loved her family. Whether she was at one of the grandchildren’s many activities, concerts, or games, or hosting large family get-togethers, or just catching up on a quick call, you always felt the love of Jan.
In lieu of flowers, please send memorials to the Minnesota Humane Society.
Celebration of Jan will be June 27th at Faith Lutheran Church in Waconia, MN.
