Dr. Mary Landin was a longstanding, tireless UDC member, serving in the Vicksburg 77 Chapter for many years. Among her many talents, she earned a doctorate in Forest Resources at MS State, was a published author, and possessed a remarkable wit. She loved watching MS State sports, and wanted members of the football team to be pallbearers because she said her Bulldogs could always reliably let her down! Dr. Landin will be sorely missed.
