Janet Stenberg
Janet Jensen “Jan” Stenberg died peacefully on August 26, 2017 surrounded by her family following a long battle with Parkinson’s disease.

Memorial services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, September 2 at First Congregational United Church of Christ. Inurnment will be in the Church Columbarium. A visitation will be held from 9:00- 10:45, Saturday at the Church. The Egelhof, Siegert & Casper Westview Funeral Home and Crematory, 2659 John F. Kennedy Road is assisting the family.

She was born to N Peter Jensen and Maude Markham Jensen in Dickenson, ND on November 4, 1942. Her family moved to Rochester MN where she attended elementary school. The family moved to Minneapolis MN in 1953 where she completed elementary school and Southwest High School graduating in 1960. After graduation she attended the University of Minnesota, in Minneapolis and then at the Morris MN campus. In 1961 she entered St. Barnabas School of Nursing receiving her RN in 1964. She worked as a nurse at Eitel Hospital in Minneapolis until 1967. She married Michael Stenberg, her high school sweetheart, on March 19, 1966 and began the adventure of being a Navy wife, "the hardest job in the Navy." While Mike served in the Navy and after his retirement from the Navy in 1990, they visited all fifty states and many foreign countries.
Jan was artistic. She achieved her teaching shingle in the Kofu School of Ikebana, made several Japanese dolls and silk paintings while they were stationed in Japan 1973-1979. After returning to the USA she became an avid quilter and created many beautiful quilts and wall hangings.

Jan and Mike were active in the churches they joined as they moved from place to place and have been active members of 1st Congregational UCC Church of Dubuque for twenty years.

She is survived by her loving and devoted husband Michael Stenberg; her daughters, Carolyn [Steven] Yaden and Elizabeth “Beth” [Ronald] Cooksley; 3 grandchildren: Amanda Yaden, Sarah Yaden, and Michael Cooksley; her brother, Mark [Liane] Jensen; and her sister, Jane [Marvin] Maas.

She was predeceased by her parents.

Her family wants to thank the Doctors, Nurses and staff at Mercy Hospital, and Medical Associates for their care over the past few years. We also want to thank the staff at Luther Manor, and Hospice of Dubuque. In lieu of flowers, people may donate to Hospice of Dubuque, 1st Congregational UCC Church of Dubuque, or Parkinson's disease Research.
