LaVerne Catherine Meyer, age 84, passed away peacefully at Caring Hands Assisted Living in New Holstein, WI, on Saturday, July 1, 2017.

She was born on March 7, 1933, in Brillion, WI, the daughter of the late Steve and Cora (VanderLoop) Wittmann.

LaVerne was a 1950 graduate of Brillion High School.  On November 24,1955 she married the love of her life, Jerome (Jerry) Aloysius Meyer, at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Askeaton, WI.  Jerry preceded her in joining their heavenly father on September 29, 2012.  As the years went by, LaVerne missed Jerry immensely and has now been reunited with him at their final resting place in heaven. In their life together, they lived in Sheboygan Falls, WI, for 35 years, and then upon their retirement, moved to Kiel, WI, to be closer to their immediate family.  They enjoyed gardening together, and Jerry would often bring her flowers from their gardens.

LaVerne was employed at Tecumseh in Sheboygan Falls, WI, as an inspector prior to her retirement in 1995.  She was a member of the Kiel VFW Auxiliary.  With her strong faith, she was an active member of Ss. Peter & Paul Parish in Kiel, WI, belonged to their Christian Mothers group, and ushered mass services with her husband.  She loved baking with her grandchildren, especially when they were little, as she often laughed at how “artistic” they could be with frosting the cookies.  She enjoyed golfing and was in a golf league for about 10 years.  She thoroughly enjoyed playing card games.  She loved collecting plates and bells. She always looked forward to their annual vacations in Golf Shores, AL, over the winter months during their retirement years.  

The family wishes to extend their appreciation to the staff at Caring Hands Assisted Living in New Holstein, WI, and to the staff at Heartland Hospice in Fond du Lac, WI, for their compassionate care of LaVerne.

Survivors include: a daughter, Cheryl (Tom) Graff of Elkhart Lake, WI; a son, Daniel (Vickie) Meyer of Howards Grove, WI; 4 grandchildren: Jennifer (Christopher) Wray, nee Graff of Waukesha, WI, Jeremy (Rachel) Graff of Sheboygan Falls, WI, Becky (Jake) Murray, nee Meyer of Bloomington, MN, and Sarah (Patrick) Costello, nee Meyer of Shakopee, MN; 3 great grandchildren: Allison and Madelyn Wray of Waukesha, WI, and Henry Murray of Bloomington, MN; 2 sisters: Arlene Fink of Kaukauna, WI, and Dorothy (Allan) Zahn of Brillion, WI, 1 brother, Marvin Wittmann of Little Chute, WI, and 1 sister-in-law, Verdayne Meyer of Sheboygan Falls, WI.

Along with her loving husband, she was preceded in death by her immediate family of two sisters: Rita Lau and Gloria Steinfest along with several other brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.

Funeral service will be held on Saturday, July 8 at 12:00 p.m. at Ss. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, (413 Fremont St.) Kiel, WI. Friends may call at the church on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. The Wieting Funeral Home in Chilton, WI, is assisting the family with arrangements.  For online condolences and additional information please visit www.wietingfuneralhome.com. 

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established in LaVerne’s name for The Dementia Society of America.
Cheryl and Dan - your parents were friends many years with my parents, Ralph and Dorothy Koffarnus. I remember you brought your Mom to my Mom's funeral. Your Mom was a very nice lady. Thinking of you at this sad time. My sympathy to you and your families.
