Mae was born in Hamilton County, IA on May 27, 1930, the daughter of Hosea Guy Land and Hazel Marie (Harris) Land. Mae worked in Boone as a waitress for many years at the Boone Golf and Country Club and other local restaurants. Mae was considered by many to be the best waitress in Boone and taught many young women how to properly wait tables. These women became life long friends.

Mae had a true love of socializing and was always planning the next party. Mae had an outfit for every occasion and always had the best decorated party tables for every occurrence of the year.

Mae’s family always came first. She is survived by her three children, Allan (Barbara) of Houston, TX, Terry and Marty, both of Boone; 6 grandchildren, who called her “GG” Grandma Great, Lisa (DeVore) and Matt Veatch of Overland Park, KS, Aime' (DeVore) and Peter Lenz of Leawood, KS, Kelly (Dannatt) and Matt Nordby of Charlotte, NC, Kaci Dannatt (Geoff Eikmann) of St. Louis, MO, Jason and Amber Dannatt of Magnolia, TX, and Chris and Jennifer Dannatt of Cypress, TX; 10 great-grandchildren. Also survived by her sisters, Ruby Riley of CA and Janet Land of CO; and brother, Larry (Linda) Land of FL.

Mae was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Ivan “Red” Dannatt; three sisters, Wanda, Arlie, and Rita; and one brother, Paul.

Mae was very proud that all of her children and grandchildren graduated from college, 2 with Master’s Degrees. Mae was also very proud that she received her honorary high school diploma at the tender age of 90.

Mae’s Legacy continues not only with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, but in the countless number of hearts in those whose lives she touched. She will be dearly missed by all who were blessed enough to know her.
