Maryanne Bailey Nosler passed away gracefully in her home July 24 with her family by her side. She was 71.
Maryanne, known as "Mimi" to her family and their friends, was born Oct. 9, 1947 to Preston J. and Irene Feely Bailey in Portland, Ore. She attended Fernwood Grade School and moved to Lake Oswego in 1959.
Maryanne graduated from St.Helen's Hall (now Oregon Episcopal School) in 1966.
She was a Los Angeles-based flight attendant for Western Airlines when she married Henrik Johansen and daughter Kisa was born. She continued flying until 1972 when son Jamie arrived. In 1973, Maryanne divorced and returned to Lake Oswego to raise her children.
In 1980, she married Michael Nosler. Mike adopted the children and they were happily married for 35 years until he died in 2013.
Maryanne was known for her beauty and grace, and love for her family. She and her daughter Kisa were best friends and were together every day. Her grandchildren were her greatest blessing, and she spent all of her time loving and supporting them. She enjoyed living on the lake, her pots of flowers, snow and water skiing in earlier years, and time on Maui with her family. Maryanne was a past member of Oswego Lake Country Club and enjoyed many years and treasured friendships with Tournament Golf, Inc. Maryanne is survived by her daughter Kisa and beloved son-in-law Brad Nantz of Lake Oswego; three grandchildren Taylor Nantz of Tacoma Wash., and Morgan Nantz Kjemhus (Chad) and
