February 9, 1962 - August 2, 2019

Renee was born February 9, 1963 in Rockford, Illinois to Richard and Patricia (Ostern).  She graduated from the Spring Grove High School in 1981 where she was active in sports, especially basketball and softball.  She worked in road construction for a short time, then with the family business Larson Well Drilling, and Service Master before starting her own cleaning business “Stellar Cleaning”.  On July 3, 2010 she married Roger Lanswerk at their home in Mabel. Renee enjoyed spending time with family especially her grandchildren. She also enjoyed sports, working on her yard and garden, and just being outside. Baking and cooking for friends and family brought her, almost, as much pleasure as those who got to enjoy it.

Renee passed away Friday, August 2, 2019 at her home surrounded by family at the age of 56. 

Renee is survived by her husband Roger Lanswerk of Mabel; a daughter Amanda (Mervin) Lambright of Mabel; step-son Jake; grandsons Keaton and Kaleb; her mother Pat Blagsvedt of Spring Grove; step-mother Marcia Larson of Mabel; a brother Russell (Karen) Larson of Mabel; niece and nephews Hayley, Jordan, and Tyler. She was preceded in death by her father, Richard; a brother, Rick “Julio”; and step-father Kenny “K.B” Blagsvedt.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Renee and Roger’s house, 42971 104th Street, Mabel, MN on Saturday, August 10, 2019 starting with a prayer at 2 p.m. and continuing throughout the day.  Lunch will be served. Arrangements are entrusted to the Mengis Funeral Home in Mabel.
