Iva B Hohler, age 84, of Hudson, formerly of Clayton, WI, died on March 13, 2012 at the Lutheran Home of River Falls. This comes after a long time battle with Huntington’s Disease.
Iva was born on August 15, 1927 to Gilbert and Ella (Johnson) Torgerson in Clayton, Wisconsin. She grew up in Clayton and graduated from Clayton High School. Upon graduation, Iva was united in marriage to Henry Hohler. This marriage would be blessed with four children: David, Randy, Steve and Linda. The Hohler family would eventually move to Hudson and Iva would find work as a waitress at the Oasis in Stillwater, Minnesota. She would work at the Oasis until her retirement in 1984. It was in 1994 that Henry passed away. Iva would remain in Hudson, close to her friends and family.
Iva was a dedicated Green Bay Packer fan as well as a frequent NASCAR watcher. She enjoyed picnicking, loved chicken, and you could always count on her to order a pizza or two when friends were over. Her favorite times were those spent with her family and friends and she was always excited to have company over for a visit.
Iva is survived by her; sons, David (Lynn Colburn) Hohler of Hudson, Randy (Cinda) Hohler of Hudson, and Steve (Audrey Parrish) of Farmington; daughter, Linda Hohler of Hudson, WI; grandchildren, Steve (Lisa) Hohler, Amy (Brad) Briggs, Torie (Jason) Andrea, Stacy (fiancée Josh) Hohler, Angela (brent) Snomion, Heather Hohler, Jesse Hohler, Kimberly Hohler and Jeremy (fiancée Jess) Hohler; sister, Ruby Springer of Clayton, WI, many great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and dear friends.
She is preceded in death by her; first husband, Henry; companion, Vern; sister, Fern and brother, Milton.
