Virginia 'Jenny' Landstrom

BLOOMINGTON — Virginia “Jenny” Landstrom, 82, of Bloomington, passed on to join her husband in Heaven Sunday (June 9, 2019) at OSF HealthCare St. Joseph Medical Center, Bloomington.

Jenny was born April 12, 1937, in Bloomington, to Lee B. and Elizabeth C. Sprague. Jenny married Duane Walter Landstrom on Nov. 20, 1955; he preceded her in death in 2013.

She is survived by her five children, Patricia (Timothy) Collier, Bloomington; Michael “Bull” Landstrom, Roberts; Jeanette “Kathy” Kessinger, Waupaca, Wis.; Jennifer “Bama” “Oscar” Thrasher, Wetumpka, Ala.; and Yvonne “Kris” Stroleny, Bloomington. She is also survived by nine grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband and two great-granddaughters.

Jenny was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was a domestic engineer and farm assistant to her husband. She fiercely loved her family and enjoyed spending time with them and had a wild and wicked sense of humor.

A celebration of life will be from 2 to 4 p.m. Thursday at Calvert & Metzler Memorial Home, Bloomington. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to their Relay for Life team, Landstrom's Warriors, https:/secure.acsevents.org/sitePageServer?pagename=relay_donate_now; the Roberts Fire Department or Bloomington Fire Department.

In the words of our mom: “Have a good day, and eat all your worms.”
