LaVern Colesta Waldeisen Obituary
Lavern Colesta Waldeisen of Boulder died August 12, 2013 at Frasier Meadows. She was 89. She was born June 9, 1924 on the "old homeplace" in Porter, NM to Tom and Lanora Terry.
LaVern was proud to tell how her family came to New Mexico in a covered wagon from Oklahoma. Originally they lived in a sod house, eventually building their home and raising ten children on the farm. It was a hard life but there was love and many many descendants, and fascinating stories.
After World War II, she met and married Robert Waldeisen. They raised a family of four in Barbours, PA. It was an active home with a vast array of wild animals, which LaVern took in stride (more fascinating stories).
Her daughter Gail preceded her in death. Survivors include Steve (Janis) Fought, Bob (Teresa) Waldeisen, and Terry (Joe) Turnbow, grandchildren Stephen and Wayne Fought, Kelli Williams, Max and Lars Waldeisen, and Dillon Turnbow. There are ten great grandchildren and she has hopes for more! She also has been a wonderful aunt to many nieces and nephews, and a caring friend to special people in her life. She will be greatly missed by us all!
A memorial service was held Friday, 8/16, at Crist Mortuary, Boulder, CO.
