Jeanette (Claeys) Hoberg was born in Taunton on October 29, 1935 to Emil and Sophie Claeys and passed away due to ongoing health issues at Avera Marshall on March 3, 2021. She attended Minneota high school where she was active in band and 4H (gardening, sewing, cooking and equestrian interests). After graduation she worked as clerk in the Register of Deeds office in Marshall until her marriage to Donald Hoberg in 1959. They moved to a farm in Lake Benton, started a family and moved back to Minneota in 1968. After her children graduated, she worked at the Minneota Medical Center for 24 years, retiring in 2006. Following that, she became a member of the Minneota Senior Citizens, where she enjoyed playing cards and bingo and serving on the board. She was a member of St. Edward Catholic Church in Minneota where she served six years on the Parish Council. She also participated in the St. Joan of Arc Society where she served in various positions including treasurer and International Affairs Commission. She also had been a lifetime member of the church choir, starting at age seven. Following health issues, she moved to Madison Avenue apartments. Her greatest joy was visiting with her kids and grandkids and she never missed a birthday without acknowledging with a card or call.
She is survived by her children: Paul Hoberg from Minneota; Darla Frost of Le Sueur; Karen (Brad) Otremba of Inver Grove Heights; Deann (Craig) Holland of Marshall; and Julie (Craig) Snyder of Austin; grandchildren Evan Frost, Emily Otremba, Elliot Holland, Josie Holland, Kyle Snyder, Niki Snyder and Chloe Snyder; and sister-in-law Marilyn Claeys. She was preceded in death by her parents Emil and Sophie Claeys, her husband Don, siblings Marie Janssen, Bertha Tholkes, Evelyn Millard, Joe Claeys, and Andrew Claeys; and son-in-law Paul Frost.
