Jeanne Walters Sayers, 62, of Golden Valley, passed away unexpectedly Sept. 21, 2013, due to complications of lung cancer, according to an online obituary.
She was a lawyer and an insurance professional, but first of all, she was a cowgirl. A graduate of the University of Minnesota and William Mitchell College of Law, Sayers practiced law for 10 years and then joined her father at his independent insurance agency, Rockford Metro West, states the obituary.
She was warm, caring, generous, spontaneous and stubborn. Her passion was riding horses, particularly her Arabian, Phar. She was a wonderful wife, sister, daughter, and friend to so many, according to Legacy.com.
