Mary Jane Nordlund, was born on May 3, 1939 and passed away on Tuesday, December 29, 2020 at the Essentia Health- St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Brainerd, MN. She was 81 years old.
She was a loving mother, grandmother, wife, girlfriend, and daughter. Mary was one of those souls that blessed everyone she came into contact with no matter how you knew her. I guarantee you received an unforgettable memory of her.
Mary lit up the room. She was kind, and it’s that kindness and forgiving nature you don’t see very often. She was protective, that only comes from instinct. She was a wise lady and she would “figure it out” as she would often say.
She was very loving and would welcome you and almost anyone in with open arms, whether it would be a friend or significant others, she had a heart made of pure gold. Mary loved her porcelain dolls; many would tell you how she had a room dedicated just for them. She loved flowers, animals, and most of all her family. Anyone who knew Mary would consider themselves lucky. She had a one of a kind personality that you just couldn’t forget.
Today we say goodbye to Mary lifts off with the Angels of her sons, George, Scott and Allen and daughters Terry and France. We will miss her and see her soon enough, I’m sure she’s looking down on us right now smiling.
Mary is preceded in death by her parents, sons George, Allen and Scott LeBlanc, daughters France LeBlanc and Terry Limper.
She is survived by her children Paul Davidson, Christine Clark, John LeBlanc, Duane LeBlanc and Tracy DeVries and 19 grandchildren.
