Jeffrey Allen Sveen

January 18, 1960 ~ August 14, 2012 (age 52)

Jeffrey Allen Sveen, 52, of Stewartville, died Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2012, at Saint Marys Hospital Emergency Room in Rochester. He was born Jan 18, 1960, in La Crosse, Wis., to Melvin G. and Muriel (Hildestad) Sveen. Jeff grew up in the Rushford/ Peterson area, and was a 1979 graduate of Rushford High School. Jeffrey was a farmer. Jeff was a friendly, talkative and extremely happy fellow who easily made friends and loved to make people laugh. Jeff liked to tell jokes, be silly and tease people, which made him very happy. Jeff especially loved working in his garden and was never selfish when it came to handing out his veggies to people in his support team, people at the REM office, and the nurses at OMC as well as sharing them with his roommates at home. Most of all, Jeff loved his brother, John and his family always talking about what everyone was up to, telling about his recent visits with John and how much he appreciated all the things John helped him with. Jeff will be missed. Jeff is survived by one brother, John (Rhonda) Sveen of Fountain; a sister Julie Sveen of Rushford; and nieces and nephew, Rachel of Stewartville, Cheyenne of Rochester and Isaac of Fountain. He was preceded in death by his parents. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 17, at the Fountain Lutheran Church, with Rev. Paul Forde officiating. Visitation will be one hour prior to the services at the church. Riley Funeral home in Chatfield is in charge of arrangements. (507) 867-4310.
