Lanna Rumppe

Lanna Rumppe, age 77 of Viroqua, died Sunday, November 18, 2018.

Sample ImageLanna was born in Viroqua, WI on January 10, 1941 to Gordon and Olive (Paulson) Olson. After graduating from high school Lanna received her teachers certificate from the Normal School of Teaching. Lanna then married Dale Eddie Rumppe on April 22, 1961 and together they raised three wonderful children.


Lanna worked through nearly all departments before retiring from NCR. Then she worked for Magic Cabin Dolls and finally at the Flower Garden at Nelson’s Agri-Center. Lanna loved all flowers but especially those in her garden. She loved quilting, particularly with the church ladies quilting group, who often times donated their quilts to expecting mothers-to-be or other families in need. Lanna loved her Christmas season above all holidays. This time of year would begin her ‘Christmas Tree’ decorating of different Christmas trees in each room of her house, some staying up just long enough to stretch the holiday. Lanna will be greatly missed.


Lanna is survived by; her husband of 57 years Dale, her children Christopher (d. Ellen), Patti Jo (Jose Miranda) Rumppe, and Paula (Wayne) Lee; her grandchildren Erin (Adam) Wallin, Jose Jr., Nicholas, and Isabella Miranda, and Anthony, Brenda, Jaylin and Chloe Lee; and her great-grandchildren Madison and Claire Wallin. Also surviving are her brothers and sisters; Patricia (Donald) Olson, Noreen (Keith) Yahn, Gayle (Lynn) Olson, Mark (Bonnie) Olson, Edward (Barbara) Olson, Matthew Olson and many nieces, nephews, and friends.
