Jessieca Lynn Buettner, the daughter of Rick and Sharon Kolsrud Buettner, was born Aug. 19, 1981, in Algona. Her family moved to Dixon, Calif., when she was two weeks old to live with her grandparents. They later moved to West Palm Beach, Fla., where she received her early education. When she was in second grade, they moved to Marathon, where she finished her education at Laurens-Marathon Schools.
During her adult life, she worked for a short time as a waitress, until her failing health prevented her from working.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Sharon Buettner; her grandfather, Eugene Urban; her uncle, Danny Buettner; two aunts; and her Grandma Kolsrud.
Jessieca is survived by her grandmother, Donna Urban of Spencer; her father, Rick Buettner of Des Moines; her brother, Jereamy Buettner of Spencer; her children: Desiree Buettner of Estherville, Tyrome and Audria Launderville of Alta, and Danelle Siefer of Alta; and a very special friend, Betsy Johnson of Spencer.
