Mae Lorraine Anderson was born on August 30, 1923 in Bagley, Minnesota to parents Martin and Laura Strand Anderson. She graduated from Grand Forks Deaconess School of Nursing in 1944. She was a member of the Cadet Nurse Corp, in which she vowed to remain in nursing for the duration of World War II.

After graduation, Mae went to California where she was employed by the Medical Department of Standard Oil Company of California (which is now Chevron) until her retirement in 1984. It was there that she met her husband, Harold. During her employment she was active in the American, Western, California, and Northern California Association of Occupational Health Nurses, in which she held many offices. In 1996 she and her husband moved to Mesa, Arizona where she enjoyed entertaining the many winter visitors from Minnesota and other states who wintered there. Mae and Harold moved back to Fosston in July of 2014. Harold passed away on March 6, 2017.
