Vernon Jellum of Oak Park Heights, long time resident of Scandia, died July 2, 2020. He was 84.
Beloved husband and best friend of Beverly, loving father of Linda and Dave Grant, Greg and Ellen Jellum, Susan and Rob Ward, very special grandpa of Brian and Brittany Grant, Amy and Peter Awker, Brad and Matthew Jellum, great-grandpa of Easton Awker, and adored by his faithful four legged companion Kirby.
Vern loved life, his family, his horses, his job for 43 years with McGough Construction as well as too many hobbies to name. He will be dearly missed.
A Celebration of Life will be June 27 at the Scandia Community Center, 14727 209th Street North, Scandia 55073. Visitation will be at 1 p.m., service at 2 p.m. followed by lunch.
In lieu of flowers, memorials in Vern’s name can be made to the Salvation Army, an organization that meant so much to him. The family requests that those who have not been fully vaccinated wear a mask for the protection of others – especially those who are not able to be vaccinated and those caring for them.
