Luann Hennes

August 2, 1976 - May 14, 2023

Luann L. Hennes, age 46, of Lonsdale, died unexpectedly at her home on Sunday, May 14, 2023. Luann was born on August 2, 1976 in Shakopee to Gerald E. and Barbara L. (Kreuser) Hennes. She grew up in New Prague, graduating from New Prague High School, and attaining an associate arts degree from South Central Community College in Faribault. Luann worked as a rural mail carrier for the Northfield branch of the US Postal Service for many years. Her three children were the center of her world and there was nothing she wouldn’t do for them. She was a loving, caring single mom, sister, and daughter, putting the needs of others before her own. She was also a force to be reckoned with, with her fiery, sassy personality that served her well because there was no do-it-yourself task that she wouldn’t take on! Her favorite environment was the outdoors. She enjoyed gardening and, just like her own mother, had an amazing green thumb that could bring back even plants that appeared dead. She was an avid animal lover, with a special love for horses. Any extra down time could find Luann reading a good mystery, doing puzzles, or cross-stitching.

Luann is survived by her children, Hannah & Hayley Hennes of Lonsdale, and Garrett Hennes of Faribault; father, Jerry Hennes of New Prague; siblings, Michelle Hennes of Cohasset, Jeff (Jennifer) Hennes of Jordan, Renae (Marc Hallin) of New Prague, Jessica (Brady) Pavek of New Prague. She is preceded in death by her mother, Barb Hennes.

Private family services will be held.

God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow,
sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day,
comfort for tears, and light for the way.

I am so sorry and so sad about Luann’s passing. I grew up with Luann at St. Wenceslaus and then we were “locker neighbors” in high school. She was fun, sassy and wasn’t afraid to be herself. May she rest in eternal peace. My heart is with the Hennes family.
