To this union, two daughters were born, Beverly and Debra. LaVern was a busy mother and spouse. She helped on the farm with raking hay, milking cows, raising chickens and had a large garden for canning. LaVern baked the best pies and caramel rolls you could ever eat. She was a member of the friendly Golden Rods Club, a 4-H leader and was a member of Zion Lutheran Church and its ladies aid, holding offices for many years. She always helped on Fridays to get the bulletins ready for Sunday services and helped serve food for many bazaars and funeral dinners. The Lord gives and the Lord takes away, blessed be the name of the Lord. Bev and Deb give thanks to God for giving them such a wonderful mother. Survivors include two daughters, Beverly (Dick) Schumacher of Kearney and Debra (Fred) Gleason of McCook; four grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her spouse, Victor; her parents, Edwin and Mary; a brother, Lloyd; and numerous brother and sister-in-laws. Organist will be Dottie Ahlers.
