Obituary

Nina Larimore Roseland, 82, died December 13, 2011 at Iowa Methodist Hospital after a courageous battle with Scleroderma.

Nina was born June 7, 1929 in New Orleans, Louisiana to Dr. Ogilvie M. Larimore, a renowned cancer research doctor at Johns Hopkins, and Gertrude Gardenhire Larimore.

She was raised in Moorhead, Minnesota and Des Moines, Iowa. Nina graduated from Roosevelt High School, where she was a champion swimmer, having set many school records. She attended University of Iowa, meeting the love of her life Robert (Bob) Roseland. Married for 62 years, they had 3 children, Craig (Cathy) Roseland of Sartell, MN, Anne (Mike) Thompson of Irvine, CA and Kurt Roseland, and 2 grandchildren, Kate and Robert.

Nina was a vibrant, fun-loving sportswoman. She was an excellent tennis player, golfer and was famous for always landing the largest walleyes at the family cabin on Lake Vermilion in northern Minnesota. She loved art, the outdoors, good books, her family and friends and the Iowa Hawkeyes! She was a class act!

She was preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Louise, and son, Kurt.
