Carmen L. (Hoppe) Lannue
Carmen L. (Hoppe) Lannue, age 88, entered the presence of the Lord in heaven on January 13, 2023. On October 27, 1934, Carmen was born in Sleepy Eye, MN, to Albert Hoppe and Lola (Krienke) Hoppe. After spending her childhood in MN and CA, Carmen settled in White Bear Lake, MN, to raise her family. Following a successful career at First State Bank of White Bear Lake, Carmen moved to Sequim, Washington, to enjoy retirement with her beloved husband, Gerald Lannue. Carmen returned to MN in her later years and was happy to call The Waters of White Bear Lake her home.
Carmen is survived by her brothers, Gary (Rebecca) Hoppe and Scott Hoppe; sister, Darlene Heffron; sons, Craig (Theresa) Thoresen and Richard (Julie) Thoresen; grandchildren, Kelly (Brett) Isselhardt, Jay (Melissa) Thoresen, Kyle (Kim) Thoresen and Bradley (Kristine) Thoresen; along with eleven great-grandchildren.
Preceding her in death was her father, Albert Hoppe; mother, Lola (Krienke) Heffron; sisters, LaMonne (Hoppe) Chapman and Cheryle (Hoppe) Kohn; and her dear husband, Gerald Lannue.
Carmen firmly believed that the Bible is the Word of God. She rested in the promise that her eternal salvation was provided by God's grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
A private family interment will be held in Sequim, Washington, to celebrate Carmen's life.
