LaVerne was born on April 10, 1936, in Milwaukee, Wis. 

She graduated from Pulaski High School with the Class of 1954.  

LaVerne married the love of her life, Bernie. 

LaVerne was deeply religious and lived her faith in service and involvement.  LaVerne was a pillar of her Catholic parish, where she volunteered her time. She was president of the Women’s Guild, a Eucharistic minister and sang in the church choir.  

She was a leader for both the Boy Scouts and the Girl Scouts and promoted youth fundraising and volunteering.

She loved giving back to her community and making and providing meals to those in need. She was also involved in many volunteer activities with the Cedarburg Women’s Club.

LaVerne was a hard-working mother and grandmother. In the early years of her career, she worked at Wisconsin Bell and retired from Kohl’s food store in Thiensville, Wis.  

She treasured her time with her grandchildren that she loved and cared for and enjoyed planning and participating in their fun activities.  

LaVerne loved to travel and she loved to fish. Many times while fishing with Bernie, she enjoyed catching the “big fish” of the trip. She especially enjoyed the fishing in Canada, Lake Erie and the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska.  

LaVerne is survived by her loving husband of 67 years, Bernhard “Bernie” Kreienbrink. She was the loving mother of Donald (Kathy Kuta) Kreienbrink, Randal (James) Brink, Kerry (Bill) Reynolds and Kristi (Steve) Reidy and adored grandmother of Heather, Eric, Kristin, Kimberly, Alex, Rachael, Rebecca, William and Nicole.  

She is further survived by her brother-in-law, sisters-in-laws, nieces, nephews and friends. 

LaVerne was preceded in death by her parents and sister Jeanette Labant.

Mueller Funeral Home, Cedarburg, handled the arrangements.
