Janice Pulkrabek

July 19, 1935 ~ January 8, 2022 (age 86)


Janice Pulkrabek, 86, of Warren, MN, formerly of Euclid, MN, passed away Saturday evening, January 8, 2022 at Altru Hospital in Grand Forks, ND with her family by her side.

Janice Rae Hanson was born on July 29, 1935 in Warren, the daughter of Albert and Ruth (Kvikstad) Hanson. The second of four daughters, Janice enjoyed the closeness of family, community and church, all of which she was actively involved in her entire life. Janice married her soulmate, Jimmy Pulkrabek on April 24, 1954 at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Warren. They made their home in Keystone Township, Polk County, MN where they farmed. Their first child, Jody, was born on August of 1955. In July of 1957, their first son, Jay, was born, who died 3 months later of SIDS. Two years later, twin boys, Joel and James, surprised their parents. No one knew, not even her doctor, that Janice was carrying twins. James and Janice moved into Warren in 2018. Jim died on March 23, 2019.

Janice led a busy farmer's wife life. Participating in Homemakers, bowling leagues, gardening and preserving, having an active family life, attending grand kid's activities and being with her high school classmates were some of her favorite ways of spending her time. She and Jim thoroughly enjoyed high school class reunions, spending time at Pelican Lake, traveling to visit family and friends and mowing their beautiful farm lawn.

Left to mourn her passing are her daughter, Jody (Jim) Owens of Cottonwood, AZ and twin sons, James (Judy) Pulkrabek of Grand Forks, ND and Joel (Jody) Pulkrabek of Euclid, MN; four grandchildren, Jamie (Kaelin) Kyllo, Jenna Pulkrabek (Aaron Berg), Jameson (Brianna) Pulkrabek and Jordan (Samantha) Pulkrabek; great-grandchildren, Jax Kyllo and Savanna and Ada James Pulkrabek; siblings, Carol (Verl) Schuft, JoAnn Skunes, Nancy Abrahamson and Pete (Virlynn) Hanson and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Albert and Ruth Hanson; infant son, Jay Walter and her beloved husband of 65 years, Jimmy.
