Jane Marie Boettger was born August 22, 1944, in New Ulm to Ralph and Virginia (Hauer) Boettger. She was a 1962 graduate from Cathedral High School in New Ulm. On July 9, 1966, Jane was united in marriage to Gary Grundmeyer. This union blessed the couple with a son and a daughter whom together they raised in New Ulm where Jane worked at Minnesota Valley Testing Labs and Supersweet Foods as a Lab Technician. From early in her life, Jane did not act like most other girls her age. Instead of working in the kitchen, she dearly loved getting to spend time with her dad working in the fields with the men. This attitude stayed with her for her entire life as she gained a love for fast cars, Harley Davidson Motorcycles, and fishing. She was also never afraid to pull out her tool box and repair things around her house as well. Jane always enjoyed a good trip to Jackpot Junction casino with friends and family. Many laughs were shared with her dear friends over countless rounds of cards in card club over the years as well. Jane was a lover of animals, but always had a special place in her heart for cats. She was a member of the Legion Riders and the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in New Ulm. These memories and so many more will forever stay in the minds of all who knew and loved her. Blessed be those memories.
