Lori A. Rohde

Lori A. Rohde, age 57 of Beaver Dam, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, January 29, 2017 at Columbus Community Hospital.

Lori was born on April 29, 1959 in Waupun, the daughter of Donald J. and Marjorie (Gerretson) Harper. She was united in marriage to James "Jim" Rohde on December 9, 1974 in Waupun. She worked at the parts counter at NAPA Auto Parts for several years. She enjoyed doing crossword and jigsaw puzzles, playing cards, landscaping and tending to her flowers, along with spoiling her grandchildren, thrift shopping and gambling with Mary. Lori always had a smile on her face, and along with her elaborate Easter egg hunts, her infectious smile and laugh will never be forgotten.

Lori will be deeply missed by her husband, Jim of Beaver Dam; her children, Stacy (Adam) Griswold, Kevin (Mary) Rohde and Derrick (Amanda) Rohde, all of Beaver Dam; her grandchildren, Ryan and Tyler Griswold, Jayden, Lizzy "McLou", Carter, Carly and Carson Rohde; her mother, Marjorie Harper of Waupun; her brother, Kurt Harper of Waupun; her father-in-law, Ken Rohde of Beaver Dam; her special friend, Mary North; and further survived by aunts, uncles, cousins, niece, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her father, Donald Harper; her son, James Jr.; her sister, Lonny Harper; her grandparents, Bill and Edna Gerretson and Harriet Henken; her mother-in-law, Annelore Rohde and other relatives.

Visitation for Lori will be held on Saturday, February 4, 2017 at Cornerstone Funeral & Cremation Services, 135 Keller Blvd., Beaver Dam from 10:00 a.m. until the time of the funeral service at 2:00 p.m. Burial will take place at Highland Memory Gardens, town of Trenton. Casual attire is requested.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the doctors and nurses at Columbus Community Hospital.
