Jamie Gunderson

May 7, 1977 — June 17, 2021

Julé Ballinger will officiate the services. Burial will be in St John’s Cemetery (rural Galchutt) following the memorial service.  A live stream of her service will be available on the funeral home’s website.  Arrangements are entrusted to Vertin-Munson Funeral Home.

On May 7, 1977, Jamie was born in Breckenridge, MN to John and Peggy Carlson. She was the most perfect baby with eyes that took the world in. Jamie spent her entire life as an amazing caregiver to the young, old, and dying. She always had a way with making anyone she met feel loved and at peace.
