Madison- Anna Jo Sandra Mickelson, age 31, passed away in her home on Sunday June 9th, 2013.

Anna Jo was born on November 13th 1981 in Madison. She graduated from DeForest high school in 2001. AJ was an amazing young lady with a love of life so strong it made everyone around her a better person. AJ was a little lady with a very large personality. Anyone who crossed her path not only noticed her immediately but wanted to know her better. AJ had a very kind soul that could make the worst day brighter than anyone would have thought possible. She loved to laugh at all times and enjoyed teasing those around her affectionately. AJ had an ability to make you laugh until you cried and a love for music that often ended in dancing and singing. She changed the lives of everyone around her for the better and will be greatly missed by anyone who encountered her. Life will certainly be a little less bright without our favorite little star.

She is survived by her parents, Tony and Victoria Cornelius; as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Funeral Services will be held on Friday, June 14, 2013 at RYAN FUNERAL HOME, 6924 Lake Road, in DeForest, at 11:30 a.m. with visitation from 10:00 a.m. until the time of service.
