June 8, 1928 — March 22, 2024

Cottage Grove

Lillian Viere, age 95, of Cottage Grove and formerly  of Cannon Falls, died Friday, March 22, 2024 in Hastings.

Lillian T. Viere was born June 8, 1928 in Spring Hill, MN, the daughter of Peter and Margaretha (Jaeger) Gruber. She married Fredinand Viere October 14, 1947. He passed away  in 1998. Lillian and Nandy Lived in South St. Paul for 61 years prior to moving to Cannon Falls, MN.  Following the death of her husband, Lillian moved to Cottage Grove and shared a loving and caring home with her daughter, Karen, for 21 years. She worked at Sterling Packaging and at Southview Acres nursing home. 

Her biggest passions were her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Other things she loved were listening to polka music, watching nature shows, and sitting outside watching deer, birds and squirrels by the pond. We shall miss her toe tapping while watching Polka Spotlight on TV. She loved her potato pancakes, raspberries, cherry tomatoes and anything lemon.  She had a dry sense of humor and wit. She always reminded us to lock our doors in the evening.  Mom doors are locked and I hope you and Dad have your dancing shoes on.

Survivors include her children, Marlene Kazmierczak, Gloria (George) Sirbasku, Karen Viere, and Janet (Craig)Jaworski; nine grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews. Lillian was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Nandy, her son James, and her son-in-law Larry.
