In Memory of Mary K. Wollan, RN, BAN, ONC
It is with great sadness that the NAON family announces the sudden passing of Mary K Wollan, RN, BAN, ONC on March 10, 2018. Mary K was elected to the NAON Board as Director and then 29th President 2008-2009. Her theme of Uniting the World of Orthopaedics was her mantra not only during her presidency but throughout her career as she brought the orthopaedic team together to serve patients. She was the chair of the 30th anniversary committee for NAON and continued this work until the present by organizing NAON memorabilia and writing the history pages on the website. Locally she was the president and mainstay of the Twin Cities Chapter of NAON. Known as one of the longest running orthopaedic nursing conferences in the country Mary K chaired their well known annual meeting for many years. 

Mary K graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter Minnesota. Her work history included time working at the University of Minnesota Medical Center, Santa Clara California Hospital and Hennepin County Medical Center. In her role as Orthopaedic Clinic Manager at Hennepin her love of orthopaedics and the orthopaedic patient was well known to the medical staff and patients. She was a true patient advocate and was well respected by the medical staff for her advocacy. After her retirement she continued to serve as an active volunteer at Hennepin on a variety of projects and the Hennepin Medical Center History Center.

In her retirement Mary K enjoyed traveling all over the world. She shared her most recent trip to Scotland and the Canary Islands for the holidays with many of us on the web. She was an avid rubber stamper and knitting enthusiast and gifted many with her beautiful personal cards. Mary K also enjoyed delving into her Norwegian heritage.

Her family includes first cousins Sue Gans and Pat Gans from Minnesota. They and her mother, who preceded her, were well known to NAON as they supported Mary K through her presidency.

Donations in her memory can be made to the Hennepin Health Foundation.
