Louise Ann Theissen

December 23, 1939 — December 9, 2022

North Mankato, MN

Louise Ann Theissen, age 82, of North Mankato, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Friday, December 9, 2022 at Ecumen Pathstone Living, Mankato after being briefly admitted to hospice care.

Memorial Mass will be at 11 a.m. on Friday, December 23, 2022 (her 83rd birthday) at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Mankato with visitation one hour prior to the service. Private family interment will be in Calvary Cemetery, Mankato. Northview – North Mankato Mortuary is assisting the family with arrangements.

Louise was born December 23, 1939 in Minneapolis, Minnesota to Sylvester and Rose (Scholz) Feeser. She graduated from Good Counsel Academy. On August 9, 1958 she married Donald L. Theissen at St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church in Mankato. Don & Louise made their home in North Mankato and raised their family of 5 children there. Louise was employed for 43 years at Ophthalmology Associates, where she met many people and made countless friends with her warm smile and caring ways.

Louise was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who will be deeply missed by her family and friends.  Louise loved spending time with her family and friends – cooking for them, laughing and always had the coffee on and fresh baked treats. She enjoyed spending time in her flower garden and watching the birds. Holidays were always the highlight of her year when she was surrounded by her loved ones. Louise was an avid walker around North Mankato and Spring Lake Park until Parkinson’s Disease took control of her life.

Louise is survived by daughter, Jennifer (Michael) Kelley; sons, Steven (Kären) Theissen, Michael (Marna) Theissen, David (Victor) Theissen, and Andrew (Tori) Theissen; along with many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, sisters, sisters-in-law, and a brother-in-law.

Louise was preceded in death by her husband, parents, granddaughter, sister, sisters-in-law, and brothers-in-law.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

A special thanks and gratitude to the staff at Ecumen Pathstone Living who became Louise’s caregivers and friends for almost 3 ½ years. Thank you to Ecumen Hospice for their care and comfort.
