Laverne Berndt was born on Thursday, April 2, 1925 to Jacob and Paulene (Hoffman) Fischer in Delmont, South Dakota. She attended Delmont country school through the 8th grade. On February 4, 1944, Laverne was united in marriage to Arnold Berndt at Danzig Baptist Church in Avon. Together they made their home near Avon on a farm where Arnold farmed and Laverne helped him as a caring farmwife. Throughout the years, Laverne also helped cleaning for St. Michael’s Hospital and the Good Samaritan Society of Tyndall. In 1998, they retired and made their new home in Tyndall. Laverne loved baking, cooking, gardening, quilting, and playing games and cards with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren who she loved dearly.
Laverne passed away on Sunday, September 20, 2015 at St. Michael’s Hospital Avera in Tyndall having attained the age of 90 years, 5 months, and 18 days.
Laverne is survived and remembered by her son Gregory (Kim) Berndt of Tyndall; daughter Beth Fender of Tyndall; grandchildren: Casey (Erin) Berndt of Winner, Travis Berndt of Tyndall, and Brian (Katy) Cihak of Tyndall; great-grandchildren: Brody Cihak, Jacob Cihak, Sam Cihak, and Teegan Berndt; and step-great-grandchild Autumn Harris.
She was preceded in death by her husband Arnold Berndt in 2011, her parents, two sisters, and three brothers.

So sorry for your loss, I remember her well when I use to spend time with Beth and her family. I loved her cookies and fried chicken.
