Arlis Jean Rustand was born January 21, 1932 at the family home near Wendell, MN to Mads and Ottina (Dybdal) Rustand. She attended school in Elbow Lake, MN, graduating from Elbow Lake High School in 1950. Jean was united in marriage to Albert Blasing on July 6, 1953 in Wendell, MN. Albert and Jean made their home in Herman, MN before moving to Wheaton, MN where they lived out the remainder of their lives. Jean served as the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church secretary and the superintendent secretary for Wheaton Public Schools. Jean volunteered at the Traverse Care Center, Meals on Wheels, Wheaton Merton Dale American Legion Ladies Auxiliary, and was very active at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. She enjoyed baking (sugar cookies and flat bread were always in demand) and cooking (her homemade noodles were coveted by all). She enjoyed her time at the Lake Traverse cabin (cocktail cruises on the pontoon, sitting on the deck, and sunsets by the fire pit), morning coffee with the ladies at the Corner Café, playing cards, bowling and golfing, and listening to "the choir". Most of all, she enjoyed time spent with family.
Jean is survived by her children: Mike (Cindy) Blasing of Wheaton; Laurie (Larry) Luebke of Albert Lea, MN; Sara (John) Blasing of Richfield, MN; Kathy (Bruce) Anderson of Eagle River, AK; grandchildren: Jessica (Adam) Wilson of Wheaton; Jenny (Aaron) Julson of Sanford, FL; Tim (Laura) Luebke of Eagle River, AK; Adam (Heather) Luebke of St. Louis Park, MN; Derek (Annie) Anderson of Eagle River, AK; Annah Anderson of Eagle River, AK; great-grandchildren: Nolan, Zoey and Piper Wilson; Landon and Brynn Luebke; Bodi, Bram and Enzee Anderson; and Zachary, Nora and Levi Julson; Emalyn, Jovie, and Thaddea Arlis Anderson; two sisters: Patty Linnes of Albert Lea, MN; and Carol (Bobby) Richards of Herman, MN.
