Jolene and Alan enjoyed traveling each year to the Southwest and attending the WestFest country music festivals. She loved collecting Native American art and pottery.

She is survived by her sister Jeanette and husband Doyle Buckalew of Alleman; a brother-in-law Gary Johnston and wife Lucretia of Coon Rapids; and by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
