Maryann (Mlinar) Langlais
Langlais (Mlinar), Maryann Age 85, of NE Minneapolis, MN passed away peacefully on March 7th, 2020. Her final days were made comfortable by the staff at Our Lady of Peace Home in St. Paul where she was receiving hospice care for pancreatic cancer. While there she enjoyed many laughs and warm moments with family, friends and the wonderful staff. She also enjoyed visits from the in-house therapy dogs and ice cream from the 2pm snack cart. Maryann was preceded in death by and is now reunited with father Peter and mother Anna Mlinar (Miterko); brothers Peter and Al "John" Mlinar; son-in-law, Ian Moore; and grandson, Nicholas Moore. She is survived by husband, Earl; children, Laura (Mitzi), Paul (Betsy), Nancy (Bradley), Marybeth (Dan), Bradley (Tadd), and Peter (Tim); grandchildren, Natalie (Bobby), Matthew, Carly, Jackson, Michael, Tom, Meghan, and Ray (Claire); great-grandchildren Nicholas, Gemma, and Robby; and sisters Irene "Penny" Wojciak and Helen "Babs" Stroinski. Maryann was born in Milaca, MN on March 23rd, 1934. She grew up in the Logan Park neighborhood of NE Minneapolis and was raised in her beloved Orthodox Faith at St. Mary's Orthodox Cathedral. She studied cosmetology at Vocational High School and worked as a beautician at her older sister Penny's beauty shop with their younger sister Babs. On her daily bus ride to the beauty shop she'd frequently see a handsome young Korean War vet on crutches and eventually learn that his name was Earl Langlais. Earl and Maryann wed on September 1st, 1956 and raised their first four children, Laura, Paul, Nancy and Marybeth in Maryann's childhood home which they'd bought from Maryann's parents. In the late-60's the family moved to the still rural suburb of Plymouth, MN where fraternal twin boys Bradley & Peter were added to the family. NE Minneapolis drew the family back in the mid-70's. This time to the "Russian Hill" neighborhood north of Columbia Golf Course where many dear family friends from her St. Mary's parish lived. Her final years were spent back in her Logan Park neighborhood, across the street from her church in a 55+ living community in which both of her sisters, sister-in-law Betty, and many dear friends from her life also had condos of their own.
