Obituary of Marian Janet Lankas

Marian Janet Lankas passed away peacefully on June 13, 2022 at the age of
80.  She was the loving daughter of James and Elsie (Medinger) Schall.

Marian was born in Omaha, NE on September 7th, 1941 where she grew up in a
large family with 8 siblings.  She attended St. Cecilia Cathedral High
School and eventually made her way to Minnesota becoming an entrepreneur and starting several businesses.  One of her proudest achievements was launching and running American Realty.

She was happiest when spending time with her children and grandchildren
whom she adored.  She delighted in decorating for the holidays, cheering for
her Minnesota Vikings, bird watching and crafting.  Every day, our hearts
will miss her bright light and humor.  She leaves us with countless memories
and endless stories that will keep us all laughing.

Marian was preceded in death by her parents and siblings Jack Schall, Geri
Bihler, Margie Bishop, Shirley Mitchell and Robert Schall.

She is survived by her children Marian (Wayne) Sletten, John (Karla) Lankas and
Wendy (Bruce) Baumann; grandchildren Victoria (Jake) Ferguson, Derek
Sletten, Grace Lankas, Bryce Baumann and Blair (Aaron) Picha; brothers and sister Jim Schall, Rosemary Branigan and Tom (Joyce) Schall; sisters-in-law Peggy Schall and Elaine Schall.
