Jennifer Dalen, 42, Minot, passed away Tuesday, April 12, 2022, in a Minot hospital surrounded by her loving family.

Jennifer was born October 26, 1979, in Minot, ND to John and Debbie (Carlson) Pangrac. She grew up in Minot and was a graduate of Des Lacs Burlington High School in 1998. Jen was blessed to be a mother to Gavin and Caralina and to be loved in her life by a large family that included a bonus mom and dad, Bonnie and Dan.

Jen married Paul Dalen August 12, 2006, at Augustana Lutheran Church in Minot, where they would also make their home. Jen spent her entire working life in service to others in the ‘Magic City.’ She was a telemarketer, fast food worker, photographer, insurance secretary and a mixologist.

Jen was an avid sports fan, faithfully supporting the Bears and Bengals her entire life no matter their respective records or quarterbacks. Paul and Jen enjoyed spending time with their fur babies Ramsey, Zelda and Violet (aka, Fatty.) She was the self-proclaimed ‘Facebook Queen’ and passed the time with episodes of Friends and Survivor until she needed to dominate a game of candy crush. She will be missed deeply by all who shared in her life.

Jen is survived by her children Gavin (Didi Copeland) Edmund and Caralina Edmund and their father Steven Edmund, all of Minot; boyfriend Reed Kuhnhenn, Minot; parents John (Bonnie) Pangrac and Daniel Meschke, both of Minot; grandparents Sharon Morey and Verlane Carlson, both of Minot; siblings Tyler (FaLynn Reiswig) Meschke, Nicole (Jay) Pedie, Samantha Brandt and Jordyn Meschke, all of Minot; nieces and nephews Colton, Aleah, Kenlie, Jaymison, Elliott and Ella along with numerous aunts, uncles and to many friends to count.
