Richard R. Meverden, 86, of Wausau, entered into rest on August 8, 2021 at Cedar Creek Manor in Kronenwetter, WI.
Richard was born to the late Reinhardt and Eleanor (Kunst) Meverden on May 14, 1935 in Wittenberg. He joined and served proudly in the United States Navy right after graduating high school. He married Nancy Lutzke on September 15, 1956. She precedes him in death. Richard worked at Weyerhaeuser Paper Company in Rothschild for 34 years, retiring in 1998. After retirement, he and Nancy traveled the United States in their motorhome, visiting or passing through 48 states. More than anything, Richard enjoyed spending time with family. We will miss him dearly.
Richard is survived by sons Randal (Mary Krueger) Meverden and Ronald Meverden; daughter-in-law Terese Meverden-Morris (Paul); grandchildren Josh (Janel), Travis (Shari), Corey, Kimberly and Kelly Meverden, and Margo (Billy) Sherer; 6 great-grandchildren; siblings Ella Grosskreutz, Shirley Reiter, David Meverden, and Jeanette Pesavento; as well as many extended family and friends. He is preceded in death by his wife Nancy; son Richard D. Meverden; and brother George Meverden.
A Funeral Mass will be held Thursday, August 12, 2021 at 11:00 am at Holy Name of Jesus Parish, 1104 S 9th Avenue, Wausau. Visitation will be from 10:00 am until the time of service. Burial at Pine Grove Cemetery will follow. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Holy Name Church or the Alzheimer’s Association.
The family wishes to thank the entire staff at Cedar Creek Manor for their wonderful care for both Richard and Nancy as well as Aspirus Hospice.
