LaVerne Lloyd Astin
LaVerne Lloyd Astin, born August 24, 1927, entered eternal life Tuesday morning April 15, 2014 with the confidence of forgiveness of his sins through the death and resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ. His body now waits for the great resurrection day when Jesus will return and unite again his soul and body to live forever in heaven where there is no more sickness or death.
Vern worked for many years on the dairy farm of Wilmer and Ardelle Suhr near Hustisford. He considered them his mom and dad. Their family, Sandy and Allen Fiene, Mary and Charles Stellbrink, Pastor Jeffrey and Lorinda Suhr and their families were part of his family.
Also part of Vern’s family are the loving and caring neighbors, members of Bethany Ev. Lutheran Church of Hustisford and the faculty and students of Luther Preparatory School of Watertown.
Vern farmed his entire life on the farms of Wilmer and Ardelle Suhr and later on the farm of Art Schlesner of Helenville. Vern lived with Ronald Pieper in rural Neosho for the past 20 years.
In his retirement Vern enjoyed the activities at Luther Prep; the concerts, the plays and especially the sports, football, basketball and baseball. He tried to make all of the events. He encouraged the young men to study for the pastoral ministry. Vern was a faithful member of Bethany Evangelical Lutheran Church in Hustisford, WI.
The funeral service for Vern will be held on Saturday April 19, 2014 at 11 a.m. at the Chapel at Luther Preparatory School in Watertown. Visitation will be at the chapel on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. until the time of the service. Burial will be in the Hustisford Cemetery.
