Lavern P. Monyette

March 26, 1934 — January 3, 2014

Lavern Pritzl Monyette died early Thursday morning, January 2, 2014 at a Milwaukee area care center. Lavern was born March 26, 1934, daughter of the late Robert and Elizabeth (Gresl) Pritzl. On May 10, 1957, she married Donald Monyette at Sacred Heart Church in Appleton; Don preceded her in death in the fall of 2010.

In her younger years, Lavern enjoyed sewing and knitting, and later grew to love to take walks and bake. For many years she worked as a secretary at a variety of businesses. Don and Lavern loved to travel, and visited many states including Hawaii and Alaska. They also visited Canada, Aruba, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Scotland, England, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, France, Italy, Germany, and Czechoslovakia.

As much as anything, she enjoyed the move she and Don made to their retirement home on the shores of Green Bay in 1999. There she loved to relax and spend time with loved ones and friends.

Lavern is survived by her four loving children: Cheryl (Chuck) D'Amico of Mequon and their children Stephen and Lauren; Michelle (Brian) Sweetland of Mequon and their children Maria, Christopher, and Jared; Mark (Sarah) Monyette of Atlanta and their children Alain, Russell, and Seth; and Tom (Melissa) Monyette of York, South Carolina and their children Elyse, Joselle, and E.B.

She also leaves behind her brothers and sisters: Lucille Pritzl OSF of St. Francis; George (Joan) Pritzl of Appleton; Victor (Donna) Pritzl of Darboy; Marie (Ron) Jezerc of Appleton; Harold (Dolly) Pritzl of Appleton; and a brother-in-law: Merl Meier of Springfield, Illinois. Lavern was preceded in death by her parents, husband Don, and siblings Julius (Isabel) Pritzl, Bob (Bernice) Pritzl, Ray (Ardina) Pritzl, Bernice Meier, and Eldora Jamenez.
