Magdalene Marie, daughter of William and Mary Tess (Durbin) Haman was born on April 4, 1959, at Devils Lake ND. She grew up on the family farm at Crary ND, attended school in Crary and graduated from Crary High School with the class of 1977. She moved to Minneapolis MN to attend school to be a Dental Assistant. She worked in the dental field for 37 years in Devils Lake. Lynn was united in marriage to Steve Waldo on October 13, 1984, at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Devils Lake. They established their home on the family farm by Warwick, where they lived and raised their family. Lynn's entire life was spent serving her Lord, family, friends, community and working to help the farm succeed. She loved the outdoors and playing in the yard and gardening. The saying that your children are the rainbow in your life and your grandchildren are the pot of gold is so very true. God so blessed Lynn with such a wonderful family. They kept her on her knees praying and brought her endless joy.
