Mabel Jean Amundson, age 94, of Bloomington, MN died peacefully on February 11, 2024 after a fall at Amira Choice.

Born May 5, 1929 to Loyd Thomas & Alice Martha Jane Eubanks in East St. Louis, IL. Longtime Bloomington resident.

Preceded in death by husband, Harold "Hal" Amundson; daughter, Kathy Clausen; and son, Kenneth Amundson.

Survived by son, Thomas (Lori) Amundson and daughter, Susan (Neal) Dietsche; daughter-in-law, Gail Kind Amundson; son-in-law, Richard (Marjean) Clausen; grandchildren, Scott (Kate) Clausen, Nathan (Carrie) Clausen, Rachel Clausen, Robert (Erica) Amundson, Jacob (Emily) Amundson, Joshua (Ellie) Dietsche and Michael (Jenna) Dietsche; 11 great-grandchildren; sisters, Adell (Tom) Fulford and Linda Jo Petty; and her cherished friend and companion, Dennis Weiss.

Mabel was briefly an Obstetrics RN, but became a wonderful full-time stay-at-home Mom: a healer of wounds, wardrobe seamstress, teacher of life skills, vivid storyteller, merciful forgiver, gardener, actress, singer of hymns, exquisite baker ("Life is sweet-eat dessert first"), "Mrs. scrupulously- clean-and-orderly", faithful servant in ministry to Lutheran Church of the Redemption, Jesus People Church, Cedar Ridge and Cedar Valley Churches; Stalwart Prayer Warrior and Host to many Bible Study and Prayer Groups. Her sweet smile, evangelical zeal, and gift of hospitality touched and blessed countless lives.

We deeply feel her absence.
