Alvin "Pete" Jaeger

Alvin “Pete” Jaeger, age 90, a lifelong Mapleton area resident, died at home on Sunday, February 28, 2021. 

A Memorial Service will be held in the summer of 2021 on a date to be announced later.  Private family interment will be in Beauford Oak Hill Cemetery, Beauford.  Mankato Mortuary is in charge of arrangements.

Pete was born March 11, 1930 in the family farmhouse in rural Mapleton to Alvin Sr. and Lillian (Bleck) Jaeger.  He graduated from Mapleton High School in 1947.   Pete married Joan Sellers on November 24, 1949 at the United Brethren Church in Beauford.

Pete farmed all his life and was a member of the Grace Baptist Church in Mankato.  He enjoyed traveling with family and friends to fish “up north” including many trips to Lake of the Woods.  He loved music, especially gospel music, attending many concerts and events.  Pete and Joan often sang in church and at numerous weddings and funerals over the years - and he sang hymns at home in his final months and weeks in this life before joining his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, in heaven. 

Pete is survived by his wife of 71 years, Joan; three sons, Nicky (Gail), Tom (Mary), and Lynn (Linda); eight grandchildren, Christopher (Julia) Jaeger, Ben (Jen) Jaeger, Stefanie (Noah) Stock, Corey (Stephanie) Jaeger, Zach (Danielle) Jaeger, Andy (Karina) Jaeger, Tori (Ron) Chausse, and Kristin Jaeger; seventeen great-grandchildren (with more on the way!); sister, Virginia Schneider; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Gary and Ivy Sellers; nieces, nephews, and extended family.
