Obituary

Vernon  H.  Amundsen, age 82 of Clear Lake, WI, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, May 14, 2021 at his home. 

 

Vernon Harold Amundsen was born on December 8, 1938 in Amery,  WI  the son of Harold and Marjorie (Kimball) Amundsen.  He grew up in Black Brook Township, attended country school there and graduated from Clear Lake High School in 1957.   Vernon was married to Phyllis Austinson at Immanuel Lutheran Church in rural Clayton on September 19, 1959.  Together they made their home in rural Clear Lake and raised three children,  Kimberly, Keith, & Michael.       During this time Vernon drove a milk route for the Junkans  and later operated the family dairy farm for many years.   He and Phyllis moved to the village of Clear Lake after his retirement, but Vernon never passed up the opportunity to hop onto a tractor, mow lawn, plow snow, or take drives in the country to view the farms.   He was also a member of East Immanuel Lutheran Church and will be sorely missed by his family and friends. 

 

He is preceded in death by his parents, Harold and Marjorie Amundsen;  brother, Harvey Amundsen,

& son in law,  Timothy Smith;  in laws, Edward & Grace Austinson; & sister in law; Beverly Raymond.
