Mary R. Lausten was a loving wife, caring mother and a thoughtful friend. Our dear, sweet Mary entered into heaven peacefully on Oct. 14, 2010, in Lakeport, Calif.


Born July 4, 1939 in Mangum, Okla., to Joseph and Ola Burden, she was the youngest sister of eight siblings.


Mary worked in banking locally for over 30 years. She made many, many dear friends during her years in banking and will always be remembered for her bright smile and infectious personality.


She was a member of the Beta Sigma Phi and the Business and Professional Woman's Association. She enjoyed shopping, camping, playing bunkos and especially bowling.


Mary was a very social person and loved gathering with family and friends. There was always a place for everyone in Mary's heart as well as in her home. She cared deeply for many.


She will be dearly missed by her loving husband of 32 years, Pete Lausten of Lakeport; sons, Phillip Colwell of Sacramento and Douglas Colwell of Tacoma, Wash.; daughters, Janet Colwell-Nolan and her husband Mark Nolan of Penryn, Calif., and Pamela Lausten-Kane and her husband Dan Kane of Lakeport.


She also is survived by her sister, Pauline Mitchell of Houston; brothers, Dale Burden of Muleshoe, Texas, and BJ Burden of Cooper, Texas; eight grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and many friends.


Donations in honor of Mary may be made to the Lakeport Volunteer Firefighters Association, 445 N Main St., Lakeport, CA 95453.


A graveside service will be held at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 20, at the Maxwell Cemetery in Maxwell, Calif.
