Karon A. Langer of Diamond Bluff, WI passed away on October 4th, 2016 at the age of 76 in a loving embrace of her husband Vic.
Karon was born in Cloquet, MN. Her adventurous spirit brought her to the big city, where she earned her LPN at University of Minnesota. After traveling and chasing her dreams, she returned to Minneapolis. Shortly after she met the love of her life, Vic. Eight months later they married and have been married for 54 years.
Much of Vic and Karon’s bond was their shared spirit of adventure. This has been carried through all aspects of their life from the time they were newlyweds, raising children and into their retirement years. She and Vic raised their 4 children in Pewaukee, WI. She was a loving wife, mother, friend and aunt and an inspiration to all that knew her.
After staying home with their four children, she entered the insurance industry. She had a successful career at Cyganiak Planning, working with small business owners in the Milwaukee area. In her retirement years, she and Vic lived in Diamond Bluff, WI on the Mississippi River where they enjoyed many more adventures.
Karon (Mimi) loved every one of her 10 grandchildren, showing them exactly how to live life to the fullest. Her positive spirit and love of life will carry on in her children and grandchildren.
Karon is survived by her spouse Vic Langer, her 4 children Tim (Kelly) Langer, Rick (Cindy) Langer, Kris (John) Fjellman and Teresa (Jarrett) Ruppenthal, 10 grandchildren Mitch Langer, Nick Langer, Maria Langer, Shelby Langer, TJ Langer, Ella Fjellman, Derek Fjellman, Sydney Ruppenthal, Ciara Ruppenthal and Ahna Ruppenthal, sister Patricia Meisner along with many other family and friends.
