Von was a talented musician and in her youth was a member of the Little Chute Drum and Bugle Corps. She gave accordion and piano lessons to many learning musicians. Von enjoyed the family trips to northern Wisconsin every summer and golfing regularly. Ed and Von traveled by car all over the U.S. and Canada for 13 years after they retired. She was a great mother and grandmother. She traveled to Minneapolis often to attend grandchildren’s activities and special occasions and never missed a birthday.
