Laverne was a former employee of Allstate Insurance and the Kohler Company. She enjoyed golf, playing cards and water aerobics. She was a very active member at St. Paulís Lutheran Church in Sheboygan Falls. We would especially like to thank Lori from Aurora at Home Hospice for her care and compassion in helping our mother through this difficult time and for the love and support she gave to our family. Also, our appreciation to the staff at Lake Country Landing for the tender loving care given toward our mom in her last days and for making it a place where she felt at home for these last five months. A special thank-you to Pastor Dan Helwig for being her friend and for his visits this past week.
