Lana Jean Lundt was born Nov. 7, 1951 in Mapleton, to Dale and Madaleine (Steckelberg) Campbell.  Growing up as a tomboy, Lana was athletic and a good softball and 6-on-6 basketball player. She graduated from Maple Valley High School, then attended two years at Morningside College.

She was united in marriage to Marc Lundt on March 26, 1977 at the United Church of Christ in Mapleton. They made their home on their farm near Cushing where they raised their two children, Marshall and Kayla. Lana worked as a bookkeeper at Wilson Trailer early in her career, then at the Cushing Elevator and Feed Store, and was currently employed at the Correctionville Building Center.

Lana was an integral member of St. John Lutheran Church in Cushing where she was a 30 plus year treasurer and served on the church council. She was also on the task force which helped organize and work funerals and other church events. Little was done in the church without Lana having a hand in it. In the community, she volunteered on the Cushing Fire and Rescue as an EMT, retiring in 2020, and belonged to the Cherokee Quilters Guild as well as helping at the Cushing American Legion.

In her free time, Lana enjoyed quilting, shop hopping and quilt retreats with friends. She was an avid card player, loved to volunteer, and previously enjoyed bowling league, Stampin’ Up!, and making angel and sports pins. She loved attending her children and grandchildren’s events. Every year, she made a trip to house sit her friend Neice’s home in Florida with her lifelong best friend Belinda Bartels. Lana was a very social person who enjoyed laughing and joking. She always wore a smile and often greeted you with a hug.
