Jean loved to entertain. Whether it was with her piano playing or in having friends over for a meal, Jean enjoyed cooking and pulling out all the stops for her guests.

May God Bless the Memory of Jean Laudal.</span></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="font-size:18px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;"><em>In lieu of Flowers Memorials may be directed in Memory of Jean to:<br /> Valley Senior Living on Columbia<br /> 2900 14th Ave South<br /> Grand Forks, ND 58201</em></span></span></p> <p><br /> <span style="font-size:18px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;"><strong>FUNERAL SERVICE: Thursday, August 6, 2020, at 11:00 AM, in Stephen Cemetery, Stephen, MN.<br /> Note: If desired, please bring your own chair: Please also wear colorful clothing as Jean would want us to while celebrating her beautiful life.</strong></span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:18px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;"><strong>VISITATION: At the Cemetery, starting at 10:30 AM.<br /> INTERMENT: Stephen Cemetery, Stephen, MN.</strong></span></span></p>
