Lynette Vendella Sundeen, the daughter of Theodore and Lillian (Nelson) Sundeen, was born June 7, 1926 at Albert City, Iowa. As a child, Lynette made her home with her family in Albert City and Minnesota before moving to Humboldt. She received her education at Humboldt where she excelled at singing and was selected for the Belcanta Choir during her freshman year of High School. On June 24, 1942, she was united in marriage to Richard Steven Davis on the farm near Albert City that had been homesteaded by her great-great grandparents. The couple farmed south of Humboldt until 1951 when they moved to Fort Dodge. Lynette worked in retail for over 40 years including Wretmans Toys, Charles A. Brown Clothing, and the Kids Cottage. In 1995, she and Richard moved to Humboldt. Richard passed away in 1996 and in 1997, Lynette returned to Fort Dodge.

In later years, Lynette was active in Congregate Meals. She was a member of Rolling Hills Community Church. She enjoyed attending her grandchildren’s activities, playing cards, and loved to sing for weddings and funerals. She especially loved children and took great pride in being a Foster Grandma at Cooper Elementary in Fort Dodge.
