Lillian Venita McLaughlin was born July 19, 1925, at Dodge, the daughter of Charles and Rose (Roseau) McLaughlin. She was the second youngest of a family of seven.
She spent her childhood on a rented farm near dodge. After her father found work with the highway department, the family moved to Dickinson before she began high school at Dickinson High School, where she graduated in 1943.
Lillian went on to attend Dickinson State Teachers College to pursue a teaching degree, paying for college by teaching in the one-room schoolhouses in the country surrounding Dickinson and Killdeer. Following graduation, she began a teaching career which included schools in Bismarck, Turtle Lake, Fallon, Mont., and finally Rock Lake.
