Obituary for Bette Skodsholm Lacher

Bette Skodsholm Lacher, age 81, a longtime resident of Naperville, passed away peacefully on November 13, 2018 at her Naperville home after battling Parkinson’s Disease for nearly 30 years.

She was born June 17, 1937 in Grand Rapids, MI to the late Adalyn and Otto Skodsholm.

Bette is survived by her husband of 57 years, Robert R. Lacher; children David Lacher, of Phoenix, AZ and Susan (Owen) Schlaug of Oconomowoc, WI; grandchildren Christine Schlaug of Boston, MA and Michael Schlaug of Oconomowoc, WI.

She graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in journalism before doing graduate work at Northwestern University. She went on to teach college prep English in several school districts. She also was the editor of the Marshall Field’s newspaper “Fieldglass” in the early 1960’s and rejoined Marshall Field’s in the early 1990’s as the department manager of their gourmet gift design. While living in Ohio, Bette became president of the Defiance Hospital Auxillary. She was also the catering director of three different companies. Bette was a dedicated member of Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church since 1974. In 1977, Bette and the children moved to northern England near Manchester to live with Robert who was on assignment there and they all returned to Naperville a year later. She will be deeply missed.
