Lynn ‘LeBeck’ Laatsch

Lynn “LeBeck” Laatsch was born June 22, 1960 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, a surprise four minutes after her twin sister, Lori. She passed away unexpectedly Dec. 23, 2018 at her home in Winter Haven, Florida. Lynn will be remembered by so many as fun, generous, creative, resourceful and hard working. She had many dear friends, but was also able to strike up a conversation with anyone she met.

She struggled financially for most of her life, but shared everything she had. She lived life her own way and left a trail of smiles behind her. Everyone who knew her has a song (or two) that will forever remind them of Lynn.

Lynn was preceded in death by her father, Jerome LeBeck, and brother, Lenny LeBeck. She is survived by her fiancé, Tim Cone; mother, Beverly (Dave Nuske) LeBeck; sister, Lori (Terry) Pease; daughter, Jessie (Dave) Summerfield; granddaughters, Casey, London and Gigi; nieces, Jen (Josh) Mundt and Katie (Mike) Croninger; sister-in-law, Kathy Seelow; nephews, Chanse, Landon and Jeramy LeBeck; numerous aunts, uncles and cousins; and countless friends.

A private memorial service will be held with family and close friends at Heartland Christian Church in Sebring, Florida.
