Janyce Ann Nestrud, of Mora, Minnesota, passed away on September 2nd, 2013 peacefully in her home. She was 55 years old.
Janyce was born March 27, 1958 in San Bernardino, California to Richard and Virginia (Spear) Marshall. Janyce graduated from Forest Lake High School in 1976. After high school she earned her two year degree and eventually her four year degree from St. Paul T.V.I. becoming a Medical Laboratory Assistant.
She met Steve Nestrud and they married May 28, 1977, at Grasston Baptist Church. To this union three children were born. Janyce and Steve have resided in and around Mora for 36 years. Janyce was employed at Kanabec Hospital for her career as a Laboratory Technician. Janyce was an active member in Emmanuel Baptist Church of Mora where she took on the responsibility of leading a variety of children’s ministry activities. Her hobbies included reading, flower gardening, and “Sunday” driving. The family spent many years of camping weekends and vacations. She loved her husband and family very much and enjoyed spending every moment she could with her grandson.
Janyce always put her faith first in life, through all her trials with cancer, chemo treatments, and numerous doctor visits. Her trust in the Lord never wavered. She always said “I’m living proof that God exists, I am a miracle”. There is no other way to explain the extra time she was given here with us on earth. Janyce was a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother. She will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her.
She was preceded in death by her parents, and brother David Olson (Ann).
Janyce is survived by her husband Steve Nestrud of Mora; children James Nestrud, Ginny Klaers (Derrick), and Heather Marie Nestrud; grandchild Dakota Klaers; brothers Jeff Schmitz (Gail), John Schmitz; sisters Laurie Occhino (Scott), and Julianne Walcheski; as well as many nieces and nephews.
