Yvonne "Vonnie" Lewitzke Obituary
Lewitzke, Yvonne "Vonnie"

Yvonne "Vonnie" M. Lewitzke, 83, Kronenwetter, died Tuesday, June 12, 2012 at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.

Vonnie was born in Wausau at her parents home on December 15, 1928. She attended Wausau Senior High School and graduated in 1947. She then attended Luther School of Nursing in Eau Claire, WI and graduated as an R.N. Following graduation she worked in the Emergency Room and in various other departments of the Wausau Memorial Hospital and also St. Mary's Hospital in Wausau.

She married Harlan Lewitzke on February 10, 1951. Vonnie and Harlan purchased an electrical business, now L & S Electric. She was of great help in developing the business, doing clerical and other administrative duties.

Vonnie was the mother of two boys, Alan and Bradley and was the grandmother of two grandsons, Justin and Jeremy.

When her children were young and into their teen years, she enjoyed many family camping trips in Wisconsin and other areas throughout the USA. After the children were grown up, she did many trips throughout the world and only missed being in one continent.

Her great love was all young children. She assisted teachers at Evergreen School in Kronenwetter and especially enjoyed helping the young people to read. She enjoyed all of the neighborhood children and always had special non-sweet treats for Halloween. She loved working in her yard at home and took special joy in raking pine cones. Vonnie maintained a relationship with her nursing friends and had many happy luncheons with them. She also belonged to a "Card Club" of close friends and relatives that she thoroughly enjoyed. Vonnie was a member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church where she participated in many activities, and her faith was an inspiration to all those around her.

Survivors include her husband, Harlan; two sons: Alan Lewitzke, Mosinee, and Bradley (Sandy) Lewitzke, Weston; two grandsons Justin (Sammantha)Lewitzke and Jeremy (fiance' Lindsey)Lewitzke.

She was preceded in death by her parents Arnold and Estelle (Barter) Uecker and a brother, Dr. Ronald Uecker.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, June 15, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 1901 Kowalski Road, Kronenwetter. Rev. Frank Conner will officiate. Visitation will be held from 9:00 a.m. until the time of services at the church. Brainard Funeral Home - Everest Chapel, 5712 Memorial Court, Weston is assisting the family with arrangements.
