Obituary of Lucille Emma Nottestad
Lucille “Lucy” E. Nottestad, 96, of Cambridge passed away on Sunday, September 1, 2019.
Lucy was born on August 20, 1923 in Farmington, Wisconsin to Herb and Meta (Biederman) Staude. Lucy married Howard Nottestad on June 20,1948. She had various jobs throughout her life but enjoyed working on the family farm the most.
Lucy enjoyed watching her sons, grandsons and great-grandson race cars at local tracks. She followed the Milwaukee Brewers and Bucks. She traveled to many places in her lifetime, attended various Nascar races and went river rafting in Idaho numerous times. Lucy loved her farm and especially mowing lawn. She was always involved with family and loved her family time. She was proud of playing the bass fiddle and singing on the radio with her sisters. Lucy bowled until the age of 92 and was the past president of various leagues. She was always eager to play a game of euchre. Although it’s hard to guess how many games she played, we would roughly guess at least 10,000.
Lucy is survived by her children, Ron (Deanna) Nottestad of Cambridge, Rhonda (Matt) Christianson of Glidden, WI, Roger (Betsy) Nottestad of Salmon, ID, Randy (Linda) Nottestad of Cambridge; grandchildren, Scott (Ann)Nottestad , Brent (Stephanie) Nottestad, Justin (Julie) Nottestad, Dale (Nicole) Nottestad, Kim Nottestad, Kyle (Jen) Christianson, Kelly Christianson, Maggie (Ian) Secrest, Andy (Kim) Nottestad; great-grandchildren, Jacob, Emma, Kylie, Cade, Cal, Sam, Audra, Cieara, Blake, Jordyn, Camden, Kendall, Meta, Wren; siblings, Loretta Winkelman, Herb (Ione) Staude, Lyla (Pete) Westermeyer; many nieces, nephews and friends.
