Jean Elizabeth Wojciehowski passed away at her home in Badger, MN on Tuesday, November 17th due to complications from diabetes.

Jean was born on March 14th, 1952 to Alder and Adeline Pederson at Budd Hospital in Roseau, MN.   She graduated from Roseau High School On May 28th, 1970.  She worked as a secretary at Polaris Industries in Roseau where she met her husband.  She was married to Kenneth J Wojciehowski on June 19th, 1971. She then became a homemaker mother to her first of three children in 1974.  

She returned to work at Polaris Industries working on the line and in the sewing department. She then worked at Hartz Grocery in Roseau, until her daughter's cancer treatment required her full attention. In 1994 she returned to Polaris working as a secretary in the maintenance department until retiring in 2010.

Jean had a deep love for Christmas, collecting ornaments and all things Christmas.  Her homes were always full of beautifully decorated trees, christmas villages and decorations.  She loved to read, sew, knit, crochet and be in her gardens.  Visiting and staying in touch with friends and family was always made a priority. She and Kenny loved to fix up and renovate houses, and were always doing some home improvement project to make their home more beautiful and unique.  She loved pugs, and seldom had an empty lap when she sat down at the end of the day.

Jean is survived by her husband Kenneth Wojciehowski of Greenbush; children Justin (Amber) Wojciehowski of Badger, Tiffany Wojciehowski of Grand Forks, and David (Gail) Wojciehowski of Roseau; 7 grandchildren, James, Destiny, Lexie, Dawson, Madison, Caden, and Chance; Siblings, Allan (Barb) Pederson of AZ, Joanne (Keith) Olson of WI, Jodi (Dale) Jaenicke of WI, and Eric (Melody) Pederson of Roseau, also many beloved nieces and nephews.
