Lylise LaRue Gernert
With a prayer request and a blessing on October 27, 2020, Lylise entered into eternal rest, joining her loving husband, Bob Gernert; their daughter, Christine Parks; her parents, sister, brothers and other lost loved ones. She was born October 14, 1927 in La Crosse, Wisconsin to William and Josephine Pierce. Lylise passed peacefully under the compassionate care of the staff at Dalistan Care Home in Ukiah, CA.
Lylise treasured her large family. She and Bob enjoyed RV travel with friends and living in Yuma, AZ following retirement from Safeway. She was active with St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Lakeport and guided by her faith in God.
Lylise is survived by her daughter, Cheryl Shepherd and Herb of Oakdale, CA; son, Bob Gernert and Trudi of Ukiah, CA; son, Gary Gernert and Patti of Santa Rosa, CA; daughter, Kelli Holder and Bob of Sonora, CA; son in law, Alan Parks of Mulino, OR.
