Alicia was born in Northfield on November 21, 1983, the daughter of Curt and Patricia (Greene) Swenson.  From a young age, Alicia spent much of her time at the ice arena with her four older brothers who all participated in boy’s hockey.  She participated in figure skating and in 9th grade, she followed in her brother’s footsteps and began playing girls hockey for Northfield High School.  Alicia graduated in 2002.  She then attended Dakota County Technical College in Rosemount where she studied interior design.  Her first job was working for Aveda Corporation at the Mall of America.  She then began a career as a sales manager for Sephora at the Mall of America and had an integral role of making it one of the top sales location in the nation.  In recognition of her dedication and hard work, Alicia won many awards and a trip to France.  She was promoted to Sephora at the Rosedale Mall.

 

Alicia was very fashion conscious and took a lot of pride in how she dressed and in her appearance.  Alicia had a strong will to succeed and do her very best in her job and became very successful in her career.  She had a take charge attitude and was a hard worker.  In her spare time, she enjoyed vegetable gardening and raising chickens.  She had a beautiful smile and a loving soul.  She will be dearly missed by all that loved and knew her.
Survivors include her parents, Curt and Patricia Swenson of Northfield, four brothers, Eric (Rachel) of Woodbury, Andrew (Laura) of Isanti, Ryan (Jessica) of Elk River, Brad (Leah) of Columbus, nine nieces and nephews and her grandmother, Alice Greene of Northfield.  She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Carl and Evelyn Swenson and Thomas Greene.

    I knew Alicia through Sephora, we had worked together since 2011. She was always so kind and friendly at work, always smiling and so pleasant. She was well-liked by our clients too, it was not unusual for regulars to come in and ask for her by name. She will be dearly missed. I will be praying for your family and loved ones.
