Leonard “Lenny” McNab – Battle Lake, MN

Leonard “Lenny” McNab, 84, of Battle Lake, MN, died on Tuesday, June 14, 2022 at PioneerCare in Fergus Falls. Leonard (Lenny) Joseph McNab was born May 3, 1938 at his parent’s farm home near Brewster, Minnesota. He was baptized at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Brewster and attended Brewster Public School through ninth grade. He then transferred to St. John’s Prep School in Collegeville, Minnesota. After graduation, he attended St. Mary’s College in Winona, earning a Bachelor’s Degree in 1960. He then returned to Collegeville and entered St. John’s Seminary. After completing his theological studies, he was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Winona May 25, 1964. As a priest, he served as a full- time teacher of religion classes in Catholic High Schools and assisted with parish duties in Winona and Rochester, Minnesota in 1974. In 1976, he petitioned the Vatican in Rome for laicization. His petition was granted by Pope Paul VI and February 26, 1977 he and Eileen Mary Hoffmann were married at St. Mary’s Church in Sleepy Eye, Minnesota. Len-ny then returned to school, earned his R.N. degree and worked as a nurse on a psychiatric unit in St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester, Minnesota until he and Eileen retired and moved to their lake home on Silver Lake near Battle Lake, Minnesota. Because Lenny grew up on a farm, it is not surprising that he enjoyed outdoor activities throughout his life. These included hunting and fishing, camping and gardening.

He along with Eileen have also been very active in their local parish, Our Lady of the Lake Church in Battle Lake.
