Laverne Wolvert

June 20, 1939 ~ July 28, 2020 (age 81)


Laverne Wolvert, age 81, of Brainerd, passed away on Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at Good Samaritan Society – Bethany.

 Laverne was born to Leo and Mabel (Hromatka) Klingelhoets on June 20, 1939 in Foley. She was very kind with a sprinkle of sass. She loved her family in her own unique way and was a dedicated grandma. Although she wasn’t an award winning cook, everybody looked forward to enjoying one of her flat cinnamon rolls. Her hobbies included quilting, reading Danielle Steele, gambling games, and sneaking a sweet treat. The highlight of her day was taking drives with her husband, Jerry and dog April to their special spot at the lake. Laverne was never afraid to speak her mind, and her wit will be missed dearly by many.

Laverne is survived by her husband of over 20 years, Jerry Wolvert; children, Michelle Pixley, Mike (Margo) Pixley, Cindy (Russ) Rich, Joe (Jacci Magnuson) Pixley and Dawn Kroll; grandchildren, Samantha, Brent, Jessica, Stephanie, Jonathan, Emily, Cody, Garrett, Michaela, Morgan, Kara, Taylor and Kayla; 19 great grandchildren; siblings, Darlene (Dick) Bongers, Ken (Barb) Nelson, Gene Klingelhoets; special niece, Charlene Osvold and her family; and her four-legged fur baby, April.

She is preceded in death by her parents; sister, Marlene Meyer; brother, Joseph Klingelhoets and nephew, Joseph Osvold; and granddaughter Danielle Dawn Kroll.
