She taught third grade in Michigan, and later moved to Florham Park and Chatham, New Jersey, where she worked as a substitute teacher. In her later years, she worked for two law firms as a proofreader and conflict clerk. She returned to her family home in Bennington, New Hampshire, in 2009 and spent the rest of her life there. Lani was predeceased by her husband, Sheldon B. McCullough, in 2001; her brother, Bruce Hutchinson, in 2002; and both her parents.

She is survived by her daughter, Martha D. Munro, and her husband, Keith G. Munro; her granddaughter, Rebecca L. Munro; and Rebecca's fiancé, Matthew J. Burbridge.
