Verle E. Gee

February 1, 2018

Verle E Gee, 89, from Eau Claire, passed away peacefully on February 1, 2018, at Grace Foundation, Prairie Pointe with his family by his side.

Verle Everett Gee, son of Forrest and Gladys (Teigen) Gee was born on September 4. 1928 in Eau Claire.  His family lived on a farm in Eau Claire County where he was raised with his 2 sisters, Francis and Beverly.

Verle met Lorraine Stelter at Fourniers Ballroom in Eau Claire.  They were married on July 30, 1949, at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church.  They made their home in Eau Claire where they raised their 3 children, Dennis, Diane and Daryl.

Verle opened his own business, Earl & Verles Alignment in 1958 with a friend Earl Kline.  They relocated to Fairfax Ave in Altoona in 1964.  In later years Earl retired and Verle ran the business with his boys until he retired because of having open heart surgery at 60 at which time the boys took it over.

During the winter months Verle and Lorraine traveled to somewhere warm.  They did that for a lot of years and loved it!  When not at work he loved to be at the cottage in Chetek.  He loved to boat, fish and play 500.  He loved to have his family and friends around, their doors were always open!  He loved to tease..especially the grandchildren and great grand children.  They had 6 grandchildren, Angie, Ryan, Desirae, Danielle, Denae, and Brandon and 12 great grandchildren.  They were all very special to him and they will all miss him very much!

He is survived by his children Dennis (Donna), Diane (Ron) Foster, and Daryl (Christine Connor).

He is preceded in death by his wife Lorraine, infant son Jerald, his parents Forrest and Gladys Gee, in-laws Lawrence and Anna Stelter, sisters nd brother-in-laws, Richard and Francis Johnson and Orville and Bererly Brott, brother-in-law Bernard Stelter, nephews Leland and Jerome Johnson.
