It is with immense sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our precious mom, grandmother, sister, and friend, Lavern Martha Schueneman.
Lavern was born the middle child of three daughters to Charles and Martha Diebel on March 18, 1919. She married Lawrence Schuenemann on Dec. 31, 1936. She passed from this world on Feb. 24, 2016, a mere three weeks before her 97th birthday.
Lavern lived her life surrounded by those she loved, entertaining them often with her quick wit and warm sense of humor. She especially loved teaching German phrases to those that gathered around her, later testing them to see if they remembered her earlier teachings. She loved cooking, gardening, playing dominoes, and spending time with her family and her dog, BeBe.
Lavern is preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Lawrence Schueneman; her son, Larry Schuenemann; her sister, Audrey Dornburg; and her parents, Charles and Martha Diebel.
