Mary Lou Strande was born on September 24, 1936, to Coleman and Luella (Grindahl) Strande in Brooten, MN. She graduated from Brooten High School and continued her education in Minneapolis, graduating as a medical laboratory technician. She was recruited by Dr. Clifford Myre’s clinic in Paynesville in 1957. After working as a lab technician she was promoted to receptionist and business office manager of the Paynesville Clinic. Later she became a nursing assistant to Dr. Ray Lindeman, a position she held until his retirement in 1994. The clinic relocated to the Paynesville Hospital, where Mary Lou worked as a secretary until her retirement in 1995.
On February 16, 2001, she married Dr. Ray at Paynesville Lutheran Church. She was an active member of the church, especially in the senior choir and the altar guild. Her hobbies included an incredible talent for knitting and needlework. Sharing her beautiful personality and quiet ways were special gifts to everyone she came in contact with. Alzheimer’s affected her ability to communicate for the final three years of her life, but her peaceful composure and continued her death.
Mary Lou was preceded in death by her parents; three brothers, Alworth, Earle, and Delano Strande; her sister, Norma Mueller, and her niece, Deborah Strande.
Left to cherish her memory are her husband, Dr. Ray Lindeman; nephews, Gene (Mary Jo), David (Kim), Duane, and Steve (Dawn) Strande, and their families, as well as her husband’s five children and families.
The family wishes to thank the staff of the Koronis Manor for their kindness, compassion, and loving care of Mary Lou.
