Lucille Viola Harmening, the daughter of Paul and Viola (Schroeder) Harmening, was born on November 9, 1927 at the family home in rural Courtland. She attended country school and later New Ulm High School. On October 24, 1946 Lucille was united in marriage to Vernon Mack at the St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church in New Ulm. After marriage they farmed in Cottonwood Township, Brown County and were still living on the farm today. Lucille loved to fish, bake, taking trips, bowling, where she was inducted into the Bowling Hall of Fame in 2003 and mushroom hunting. But above all she loved spending time with her family; they came first in her life. Lucille was a member of the St. Paul's, Evangelical Lutheran Church in New Ulm.
The family prefers memorials to either the St. Paul's Lutheran Church, the New Ulm Hospice Home Health Care or to the donor's choice.
