Rebecca “Jane” Griesy


R. Jane Griesy, 68, passed away December 1, 2021 at Saint Luke’s Hospital with her loving husband of 41 years by her side. She was born May 17, 1953 in Iowa City, IA to Carl and Rebecca Griesy.

Jane was full of kindness, joy, life, and a little bit of mischief. She enjoyed time with her family, especially her grandchildren, traveling with her husband, attending services at United Church in Two Harbors, and singing in the church choir. She spoiled her grandchildren unabashedly, loved her kids with her whole heart and gave loyalty, kindness, love, support, and passion to her husband who doted on her in return.

For the majority of her career, Jane worked at Lakeview Hospital in the business office where she gained many friends, spread positivity and welcome, and helped numerous community members.

She was preceded in death by her parents Carl and Rebecca. She is survived by her husband Tom, son, David (Megan), daughter, Sarah (Dan), and her grandchildren Ethan, Sawyer, Iris, Graham, and Sadie. She is also survived by siblings Kay (Mick), Paul (Kathy), Carl, Mary (Greg), Phil, Jon (Pam), Emily, and many other family members and friends who will miss her dearly.

A celebration of life will be held for Jane in the new year at the United Church of Two Harbors. In lieu of flowers, please send memorials to Calico Kids at UCC (1407 W 18th St, Sioux City, IA 51103) or United Church of Two Harbors (531 3rd Avenue, Two Harbors, MN 55616).
