Jeanne B. Kedrowski (nee Saugstad and formerly Nelson), 76, formerly of Stillwater, passed away unexpectedly at her home on Thursday, July 28, 2017. Jeanne was born July 26, 1941, in Crookston and graduated from Crookston High School in 1959.
Jeanne was a very social person who had a smile for everyone she met. She liked to cook and especially loved baking. There were many events hosted at her home so she could try out new recipes from her huge collection of cookbooks. Jeanne loved to dance, teach dance and travel.
She also liked her quiet time, gardening and reading. Jeanne was an ambassador and enjoyed being involved with many aspects of the St. Paul Winter Carnival. Family and friends were very important to Jeanne and she always made time for them. The family especially witnessed this as she lovingly cared for Richard for many years before his death. Jeanne’s kind and generous heart will be dearly missed.
