Anne Hazlehurst Munholland, 88, died July 1, 2023. She succumbed to her brief battle with leukemia.

Anne was born in Columbus, Ohio, to Lt. Dorr Hazlehurst and Mildred Baker Hazlehurst. Early in her life, Anne lived with her family in the Philippines, where her father was stationed. The majority of her formative years were spent in Long Beach, California.

Anne graduated from University of California–Berkeley. During her college years, a courtship with former high school classmate John Kim Munholland flourished. They married on June 20, 1956.

The couple lived in Texas and Nebraska during Kim’s Air Force service. Anne received a master of liberal arts in political science from the University of Nebraska. During Kim’s graduate time at Princeton, Anne worked as a research assistant.

They moved to Minnesota when Kim joined the faculty of the History Department at the University of Minnesota. They developed a close community of dear friends and colleagues in St. Anthony Park.

Kim’s research offered Anne the opportunity to live and raise their family in Paris.

A true francophone, Anne loved to share her passion for Paris with friends either in France or in the Twin Cities. She was active in Alliance Francaise and la Liason Francaise. In Paris, she raised funds for a scholarship for students to attend college in the States, on behalf of the American Women’s Group.

She worked with the International Design Center and as a docent at the Walker Art Center.

Anne is survived by her brother,
Leighton Hazlehurst; son Chris (Krissy); daughter Sophie (John) Porter); and three grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years, Kim; her parents; and sister, Jean Mead (Bob).

The family is planning a celebration of life for early fall.
