Becky Ann Nielsen of Mora MN passed away peacefully at her home on the morning of November 7th, 2021. She was 61 years old.
Becky was the 3rd child of Ronald and Betty (Moody) Mortenson. She came into this world August 3rd 1960, a happy healthy beautiful baby girl. Shortly after her birth her family moved to Blaine MN where she spent her childhood tormenting her younger brothers through school, egging on the nosey neighbor’s while smoking candy cigarettes as she walked passed their windows, and her teenage years hanging out at Woolworth’s (wink) with friends.
After graduating from Blaine Senior High in 1978, she married Edwin “Rick” Steffy they had a daughter Kristy together. In 1985 she married a second time to Todd Nielsen having 2 more children Jennifer “Nifer”, and Christopher. After tried and failed attempts, her children took her main focus.
In 1998 following her parents (she always was a daddy’s girl) she moved her family to Mora to get on with small town life. After the move to Mora she continued to work at DSI in Arden Hills for a few more years. She also got a weekend job at Coborns. She was usually the blonde with the bright smile on register 1 (she always said it was cause she was the fastest cashier in the land!) Eventually the drive to Arden Hills got to be too much, and that’s when she found her new home (job) at Advanced Telemetry Services in Isanti. She loved every last one of her work family. They made the time she couldn’t spend with her grandkids bearable.
After her kids were grown and moved away, she gave herself to her grandkids. The adventures they had, and the memories made will last them a lifetime.
Becky is one of the most genuine, fun loving, generous, thoughtful people you will ever have had the pleasure of meeting. Please remember her.

She is survived by her mother Betty Mortenson; brothers, Greg and Dan Mortenson; children, Kristy and Christopher Nielsen; grandchildren, Taytum, Levi, Kennedy Klink, and Amya, Simon Nielsen as well as many other family and friends.
