Passed away peacefully on February 27, 2021 in the presence of her daughters. Born July 15, 1928, she grew up with nine brothers and sisters on the family farm in Hector, MN. She married Robert Dowdy Lauerman, and together they had four daughters Linda, Nancy, Mary (deceased) and Ina. Mary Jane always had a smile on her face, and a great sense of humor. She loved working in downtown Minneapolis, and spending time at the family lake cabin in Wisconsin. She also enjoyed the Minnesota State Fair. Mary Jane cherished her nine grandchildren. She will be deeply missed by all who know her. A celebration of her life will take place this summer, her favorite season.
