She was preceded in death by her mother, Alice Kluck, grandparents, Nancy and Phillip Thompson, and Evelyn and Wallace Kluck.

Janelle was born on January 6, 1971 in Minneapolis, MN to Alice and Roger Kluck. She spent her early childhood in Washburn, ND, before the family relocated to Blaine, MN, where she graduated from Blaine High School. Shortly after High School, Janelle began her career as an employee of the United States Postal Service that lasted more than 20 years.

Janelle's greatest pride and joy was her daughter, Crystal. Crystal and Janelle spent many happy times together including Girls Scouts with Janelle as a Troop Leader. They also shared a love of dogs and even ran a dog sitting service together for over 15 years.

Relationships were very important to Janelle, she loved her daughter, family and friends and enjoyed spending time with them whenever she could. She was very sentimental, keeping correspondence and memorabilia and treasuring the memories they brought her of the events and relationships she loved. Janelle is also remembered for her motorcycle, her collection of angels, music and her precious dog, Gracie.

Janelle was good at being a friend; a good listener, empathizing and reaching out to those going through difficult times. She will be missed by those who knew and loved her.

Due to covid, a funeral is being planned for a later date with details to follow.

"I have known Janelle 31 years, so many many memory's to share. One very fun one that her and I still talk and laugh about to this day. When she lived in Blaine, I was 18 she was 17, we cruised Anoka every weekend with her Omni stick shift. They lived at the end of the street in the circle. We would sneak out and push that omni out of the circle until we were far enough away where Dad wouldn't hear her start it, and we snuck out on our way. Sorry Roger, just had to share that memory. :) I want to remember her that way, fun, laughing, and spunk that her and I shared. That was just one of many good fun memory's. I recently had more good ones in the past 2-3 years. She was there for me when I needed her the most, she was a caring person. I can't begin to explain how much I will miss her, the phone calls, the text messages, our laughs. My prayers are with all of the Kluck family!!! She is out of the pain that I know she was in for the past year or more. Rest in Paradise my friend!! With Love Patti & Chaise Ellingboe"
