Marian Jeanette Lamprecht was born Feburary 26, 1923 to Arthur and Mabel (Abel) Millam in Mudgett Township, Mille Lacs County, MN. She was the ninth of eleven children. She was united in marriage to Alvin Lamprecht on November 4, 1944 at Zion Lutheran Church in Milaca. Marian and Al worked together on the farm seven miles south of Bock. In the 1960’s they lived in and operated the Milaca Hotel for a year. They then moved above Millam Brothers Implement. This is when Marian started working for Paul Reiman at Paul’s Bakery in Milaca. She was an excellent cook and baker. In 1964, Marian and her sister, Edna, opened the White Tower Cafe. It was small with only ten stools and one booth. They were known for their home cooked meals and delicious pies. Marian’s true love was music. Marian and Al loved to go to old time dances. Marian taught her girls to dance around the kitchen table. On Saturday night, they were usually at Ann Lake dancing. Marian’s other love was playing cards. She loved playing 500 and was very competitive. Marian also loved the outdoors. She loved skiing, snowmobiling and ice fishing, especially with her grandsons. Al and Marian loved to travel. They went to Germany to visit her brother, Lester, and to the State of Washington to visit her brother, Bob. They also loved going to the Black Hills and the trip they made to Hawaii with relatives. In 1979, they brought thirty relatives on a school bus to Florida for Christmas, playing 500 all they way down and back. After Al passed away in 1996, she remained very active and took many trips with her daughters. They went to Australia where she took a hot air balloon ride over Ayers Rock. They traveled to Alaska and went horseback riding, white water rafting and took a helicopter ride to see Mount McKinley. They also went to Hawaii twice, a cruise to Aruba, and just three years ago they took a road trip to Bozeman, MT to see family. For the last five years, Marian has lived independently at Country Meadows in Milaca. Here she made many friends with residents and staff. In April 2017, she moved to Sterling Pointe in Princeton, where she passed away on Saturday, July 8, 2017.
