Obituary

Jean Ann Gallas, 72 of Winona, died peacefully with her family by her side on Tuesday, July 14, 2020 at Gundersen Health System.
Jean was born January 23, 1948 in Eau Claire to Donald and Mary (Heald) Nyseth. She was raised in Winona and graduated from Cotter Senior High. On June 7, 1985, Jean married Jerry Gallas and they recently celebrated their 35th Anniversary.
Jean worked as a credit manager at Watkins for many years until her retirement. She loved to dance and her and Jerry spent many Saturday nights dancing the night away. Her family was her true pride and she loved spending time with them - especially her grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Tom Nyseth and nephew, Mike Kierlin.
