Arlene J. Eggers
Arlene J. Eggers, 95, of Minneapolis, Minnesota, and formerly of DeWitt and Teeds Grove, passed away surrounded by family at home. Services will begin at 10 a.m. Tuesday, July 25, at First Congregational United Church of Christ in DeWitt.

Arlene was born Oct. 15, 1921, in Teeds Grove, the daughter of Carl and Minnie Heldt Thomsen. She married Virgil Eggers on June 13, 1944, in Del Rio, Texas.

Arlene was well known throughout the community. She enjoyed acting in the local theater troupe, The Ol'Majestic Players. Arlene had a great love for her family, friends, and especially children. Arlene also loved to dance, travel, and garden, and she had a penchant for collecting owls. Most of all she enjoyed helping others and always saw the best in each person she knew. Her enduring, kind spirit lasted throughout her final days, with her fond smile a constant presence.

Survivors include a son, David (Vickie) Eggers of Teeds Grove; and three grandchildren, Jason (Buffy) Monahan of Michigan, Christopher (Holly) Monahan of Minneapolis, and Frances (Tyler) Owen of Victoria, Kansas.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Virgil; her parents; two daughters, Carlyn Monahan and Janet Ryder; and a sister, Lois Thomsen.
