Issue Date: May 22, 2019
LaVerne Ann (Pashek) Tedtman, 76, of Suring, passed away Friday, May 17, 2019 at St. Vincent Hospital.
Born June 11, 1942, she was raised by Lake Ucil in Pound with her parents and sister. She lived in Suring, where she owned and operated LaVerne and Gail's Diner for 34 years with her best friend, Gail Madison. She was a member of Mount Olive Lutheran Church.
She loved her daughters, but her grandchildren were her pride and joy. She was happy when she was bragging about her grandchildren, cooking for them or friends in the diner and tending to her flowers and hummingbirds. Many will miss her homemade potato salad. She enjoyed reading her weekly magazine or even a cookbook. With a fun-loving sense of humor, she was a practical joker.
Survivors include two daughters, Lori Stuart and Lynn (Dave) Kuchenbecker; four grandchildren; two great-grandchildren and on the way; a brother-in-law, Herb Fischer and nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Donald and Helen (Johnson) Pashek and a sister, Judy Fischer.
Visitation will be held at Gruetzmacher Funeral Home in Suring on Saturday, May 25 from 9 a.m. until time of a funeral service at noon with Pastor Michael Paholke officiating.
