KarinEJonesColorKarin Elizabeth (Winter) Jones, age 45, from Stillwater, Minnesota, passed away peacefully on February 20, 2014 after a battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.  She was predeceased by her brother, David Winter.  She is survived by her husband of nearly 19 years, Dave, and daughter, Adia, parents Dr. Robert and Jane Winter, sisters Cathy Winter (Gerry Dehkes), and Dr. Sarah Winter Boyer (Mike Boyer), brother Andrew Winter (Emily Winter), and sister-in-law Terry Winter.  She was adored by her many nieces and nephews—Olivia, Abby, Peter, Kirsten, Sarah, Erik, Alec, Lucas, Dena, Evan, Caleb and Noel.

Karin graduated from Henry Sibley High School, West St. Paul and the University of Minnesota.  She worked in various medical and insurance positions, most recently at Student Assurance Services, Stillwater.

Karin’s love was her family, especially her daughter.  She enjoyed her dogs, long walks, time with her friends and cherished summertime at the family cabin in northern Wisconsin.  Her culinary skills were widely appreciated by her large family and friends.  She will be greatly missed by all who had the opportunity to know and love her.

Visitation will be on Friday, February 28 from 5 to 7 p.m. A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, March 1 at 11 a.m. Both will take place at the First Presbyterian Church of Stillwater, 6201 Osgood Avenue North, Stillwater, MN.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made toward further education for Adia (Adia Jones donation trust at Wells Fargo Bank) or to the University of Minnesota Foundation (Dr. Bruce Peterson’s Lymphoma Research Fund, Med292 Q12636).
