Mavis was born June 16, 1923 to Bernard and Susan (Armstrong) Dahl in Bricelyn, and according to her mother, was a fussy baby! She grew up in Bricelyn, participated in cheerleading and other school activities while in high school, and graduated from Bricelyn.

On March 18, 1944 Mavis married Lester H. Egeness and together raised their two children on the family farm south of Frost.

A dedicated wife and mother, she enjoyed the farm life and raising her children, and in the late 1960’s Mavis began working at St. Luke’s as a member of the catering staff in the dining room.

In her later years, Mavis enjoyed counted cross stitch as her main hobby; her work has been viewed and enjoyed by many. She will be remembered for her large and beautiful garden of hybrid-gladiolus.

She is survived by her husband of 72 years, Lester; children, Carol Arndt, of Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania and Paul Egeness, of Frost; and many nieces and nephews.
