|Laverne M. Pomplun|
May 6, 1928 - Oct. 31, 2013
On Oct. 31, 2013, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grand- mother and friend was called to put down her cares and burdens to rest in eternity with her Lord and Savior.
LaVerne graduated from Westfield High School in 1946 and pursued her dream of being a teacher at Waushara County Teacher’s College graduating in 1948 and later also graduating from UW-Stevens Point in 1968. She taught for 30 years in schools in the Wautoma area, finishing her teaching at Dafoe Elementary School, though she never really finished teaching.
On July 3, 1948 LaVerne married the love of her life, Arden Pomplun, and together they created a wonderful life for themselves and their four children. Her greatest joy was seeing her family grow.
LaVerne spent her life caring for others and giving herself in countless ways by being involved with and very active in Hope Lutheran Church, Orphan Grain Train organization, Wautoma Kiwanis, Department of Aging and Habitat for Humanity.
She gave herself to all who needed her. Now it is time to lay down her work and rest in her Lord. She will be missed by all that knew and loved her.
