Jean Marie Landholm was born September 20, 1943 to Paul and Viola (Kahland) Hugo in West Point. She attended Guardian Angels School and graduated in 1961. After graduation, Jean worked at Grain States for two years as a bookkeeper. On June 23, 1962, she married Larry Landholm at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. The couple farmed southeast of West Point where Jean was an active farm wife.
Jean was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Guild, Christian Mothers, and Catholic Daughters. She was devoted to her faith and was a proud CCD teacher for many years. She enjoyed making rosaries for family and friends, doing jig saw puzzles, and attending the grandkid’s sporting events. Jean was famous for her potato salad and other family favorite recipes. She loved when her family and friends called her 'Mean Jean' – even though she was anything but.
