Rose Mary Baune was born on November 20, 1949, in Redwood Falls, Minnesota, to Clarence and Marie Baune and was raised in Wabasso. She was baptized and confirmed and was a life-long Catholic. As the youngest, she enjoyed being an aunt from a young age.

 

She married Harlan Petersen and raised their children. They lived in the Wabasso area for most of their 21 years of marriage. She later married Terry Nelson of Spicer and moved to the Spicer area. When that marriage ended, she moved to several locations in Kandiyohi and Willmar.

 

After graduating from St. Anne’s high school, she worked at Loretto Hospital in New Ulm, and then at Control Data. After the birth of her first three children, she began as housekeeping at the Nursing Home, and then as a Nursing assistant. After her move to the Willmar area, she did factory work before returning to being a nursing assistant and long-term care facilities and then at group homes. She loved serving others.

 

She was a woman of great compassion, quiet prayer, and fierce independence. Many called her Ma Rose. She loved so many and was loved by many more. She had so many hobbies: reading, writing poetry, baking, sewing, embroidery, games, thrift stores, laughing. She found joy in caring for others. She was a loving friend and managed a number of deep friendships.

 

She is survived by her four children, Tim Petersen, Fr. Todd Petersen, Rachel Petersen, Amanda Petersen; grandchildren Kayla and Ethan Dallmann, Airianna and Gaige Knuteson, and Madison; siblings, Elaine and Alf Jenniges, Theresa Buechner and Sy Baune, besides many nieces and nephews.

 

She was preceded in death by her parents, siblings and in-laws Virginia and Thomas Condon, Dolores and Leslie Schroeder, Alvin Baune, Gerald and Jean Baune and later Barb, James Buechner, Bernard and Cathy Baune, and Barb Baune.
