LaVerne E. Flagel

July 10, 1927 — July 6, 2023

Wausau

LaVerne E. Flagel, 95, of Wausau, passed away 4 days shy of her 96th birthday.
 
She was born July 10, 1927, in Wausau, to the late Alfred and Luella (Bartell) Draeger.  She married Duane "Fritzi" Flagel on January 29, 1949 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church.
 
Her greatest joy in life were babies.  It did not matter if it was one that she was taking care of or just one in a store.  Her face would light up and she would have the biggest smile.  LaVerne loved taking care of children and watching them grow.  She also enjoyed working at Prange Way for many, many years.
 
LaVerne was preceded in death by her husband Fritzi and her twin sisters Doris (Wallace) Smith and Delores Gantner.  She is survived by many nieces and nephews and a very dear friend (granddaughter) Jessica.
 
Visitation will be held on Friday, July 14, 2023 at 10:00 am with a funeral following at 11:00 am at Helke Funeral Home, followed by entombment at Restlawn Memorial Park Mausoleum.
