Minna J. Laitinen, 50, of Reedsburg, WI, passed away Thursday August 19th, 2021, at her residence. Minna was born April 13th, 1971 in Finland, the daughter of Maija-Liisa Laitinen (mother) and Lauri Laitinen (father).
Minna was a loving daughter, wonderful sister to Tuula Keinonen (sister), and Markku Laitinen (brother); and a very loved aunt. Minna was preceded in death by her father.
She will be greatly missed by her family and so many friends that came to know and love her. It would be impossible to mention all the wonderful friends she made here in the United States. But know that each and every one of you are in her heart.
Minna, loved spending time traveling, her favorite place to go was South Dakota and Door County. But as many of you know no state was ever out of the question. She traveled to Tennessee, Texas, Pennsylvania, Missouri, and Montana, just to mention a few. And every-where she went so did Jose her stuffed animal, as you saw from her many face book posts. Jose was also laid to rest with her.
To quote her father “when we do it, let’s do it properly” and she did. Everything she did was with gusto and compassion. Minna loved her job at Wizard Quest and all her co-workers. As Minna sits in heaven with her coffee cup and Jose by her side, I am sure that she is already behind the wheel heading out on her next adventure.
A celebration of life service for Minna will be held at 11:30 A.M. on Tuesday, September 7, 2021 at the Farber Funeral Home in Reedsburg. Rev. Steve Keller, Pastor of United Presbyterian Church of Wisconsin Dells will officiate. Visitation will be from 9:30 until the time of the service.
The family requests everyone to bring in a favorite picture of Minna that can be sent back to her family in Finland with her.
