Nancy Lee Lauer

March 16, 1952 — May 25, 2023

Combined Locks

Nancy Lauer, 71, passed away suddenly on Thursday, May 25, 2023, surrounded by prayer and the love of her family and friends.  She was born on March 16, 1952, in Appleton, the daughter of Jerome and Audrey (Bevers) Schmidt.  Nancy was united in marriage to Dennis Lauer on June 14, 1974, at St. Francis Catholic Church, Hollandtown.  Nancy graduated from St. Norbert College in 1995 with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education.  She enjoyed family, the Brewers and trips to the family cottage.  Nancy will be remembered mostly for her love of her grandbabies and cherished family vacations.  She strived to attend all her children and grandchildren’s events over the years.  Nancy was the best supporter you could ever want.  She was a second mother to many, serving grilled cheese sandwiches and listening endlessly.  Nancy had a way of making anyone feel loved when she was around them.  She was funny with a quick wit and good sense of humor; she needed it with our family. 

Nancy is survived by her husband: Denny; 3 daughters: Laura (Larry Koch) Bell, Jenny (Nick) Brautigam, and Katie (Jon) Fuller; 10 grandchildren: Lexi, Tyler, Rylynn, Isaiah, Drew, Benjamin, Lukas, Fin, Soren, and Laynie; her siblings: Mike (Michelle), Dan (Ria), Karen (Pat), Barb, LuAnn (Mark), Steve (Robin), Bob (Janice), Amy (Jeff), and Lynn (Gary); brothers- and sisters-in-law: Marcia (Mike), Dave, Dick, Kathy, Karen (Dan), Lynn (Frank), MaryBeth (Leon), Bob (Joannie), and Sara (Greg); many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and special friends.

Nancy was preceded in death by her parents; father- and mother-in-law: Art and Betty Lauer; a sister-in-law: Terri; and her best friend: Carol Sanderfoot.

Funeral Liturgy will be held at 11:00 am, on Saturday, June 3, 2023, at St. Katharine Drexel Parish, ST. FRANCIS SITE, 433 County Rd CE, Kaukauna. Visitation will be from 4:00 to 7:00 pm, on Friday at the Wichmann Funeral Home, Tri-County Chapel, 1592 Oneida St., Menasha with a prayer service at 7:00 pm. Visitation will continue on Saturday at the church from 9:00 am to 10:45 am.

Nancy’s family would like to express a heartfelt thank you to the staff at ThedaCare Regional Medical Center, Appleton, especially Dr. Lauren Barlow and Nurse Kassie, for their care, compassion, and kindness.
