Mark James Miesen

August 10, 1951 ~ April 17, 2021 (age 69)


Mark Miesen, age 69 of St. Paul Park, passed away April 17, 2021.

Mark James Miesen was born August 10, 1951 in St. Paul Minnesota to Adolph and Alida (Lindbeck) Miesen.  Mark graduated from Murray High School in 1969 and went on to serve in the 775th Quartermaster Company of the Army Reserves.  During those years, Mark also worked as a manager with Red Owl Stores in the St. Paul area over the next several years.

Mark met the love of his life, Marcelline Kostelecky and they were married on April 21, 1978 at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church.  In 1980, Mark joined his brothers in the family business, Miesen Roofing, and was still actively involved.

Mark loved baseball and was an avid Twins fan.  He was an accomplished organist and he took pride in making his yard and the gardens around his house look beautiful.  Mark had a great sense of humor and looked forward to celebrating St. Patrick’s Day every year.  He touched many lives and he will be truly  missed.

He is survived by his wife Marcelline; daughter Alexandra Alida (Derek) Nelson; grandson Philip Miles Nelson; brothers Karl (Barbara), John (Julie) and Eric (Terry) as well as nieces and nephews.  He is preceded in death by his parents; brother Paul; sister Alida and his “special brother” Pauly.
