Obituary for Jennifer Wilkens

Age 61 of Minnetonka passed away suddenly Aug 30, 2021.

Jen was born July 12, 1960, in Minneapolis. She is peacefully at home at the Rainbow Bridge with her favorite companions Dobie, Rosco, Taffy and many others.

Preceded in death by parents William and Geraldine (Gisselbeck).

Survived by special friend/husband/companion Fredrick S. Mulvany of Minnetonka; sisters Cynthia Benjamin (Alan), Deborah Kartak, Elizabeth Krajniak (Michael); many nieces, nephews and cousins; lifelong friends Amanda and Kim from Park Center HS; and many others from years working at Wells Fargo, ING and Supervalu.

Jen grew up in Brooklyn Center where she graduated from HS in 1978. She spent most of her 35+ year career working in data security. Jen loved to cook and was great at it. She further refined those skills at culinary school. One of her favorites was to bake 100s of Christmas cookies, which filled many tins and trays to share and bring joy to others. Jen had many passions, from the love of animals, grey boys at the pony track, to golfing on vacation, Vegas and Ft. Myers for spring training.

In lieu of flowers, donations preferred to Animal Humane Society and American Cancer Society.
