The youngest of six children, she was born in Axtell, Kan., on March 23, 1922, to Frank and Hilma (Olson) Lann.

She attended Bethany College in Lindsborg, Kan., and transferred to the University of Minnesota to pursue a degree in nursing, which she received in 1945. Marie worked for 10 years as a public health nurse in Kansas and Poughkeepsie, N.Y., before marrying Leonard C.

In their later years they wintered in Jensen Beach, Fla., which Marie continued to enjoy after Len’s passing in 1990.
