Lanora Louise Barthel, of Monticello, Minnesota (formerly of Rogers, MN) passed peacefully Sunday, May 29, 2016 at the beautiful age of 95 years, 4 months and 21 days old. She is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Leander, her parents, Katie and John Otten, three brothers, Don, Andy and Ray Otten and son in law, Gary Nelson. She is survived by children Lynnea Nelson, Lavonne (Victor) Praught, Dennis (Jennifer) Barthel, Mary (Rick) Swanson, twelve grandchildren, 33 great grandchildren, and nieces and nephews.

Lanora was a woman of great faith, she was a kind, sweet, caring and gentle woman. But if she had something to say she didn’t hold back. She loved her family with all her heart and soul and prayed for all of us daily. Anyone who met this special woman or spent time with her, loved her and she loved you right back. She would always say “I love you and I’m praying for you, pray for me”. There was always a rosary either in her hands or close by for all those prayers. Lanora touched the lives of so many throughout her time with us and that amazing faith, love and memories will live with each of us. True to her amazing faith and love she said goodby with “I love you and I will see you in Heaven”. We are blessed to call her Mom, Grandma, Aunt and friend.
