Vieth, Luana Polly

Last Updated: 2021

Luana Vieth, 75, died May 19, 2021, shortly after having suffered a stroke, in Jacksonville, FL, where she most recently resided, having formerly lived in Bartow, Maine and Lake Wales. She graduated from the Bartow Summerlin Institute Class of '63. Her professional career spanned many years in various secretarial and office administrative positions. For enjoyment she did crafting, which items she loved to share. She was quite the jokester, always targeting her family and friends. A lot of family memories will be lost due to her death because she had a great recall of the past and its events. She was born June 29, 1945 to Willard and Mattie Vieth, in Norwalk, WI, who predeceased her in death, together with her sister, Linda, and brother, Karl. She is survived by her daughters, Karen Mathis and Lori Murphy; sisters, Betty Rehberg, Patty Alexander, brother, Kurtis Vieth; and her greatest joys, her grandchildren, Amber, Marty and Ryan, as well as two great-grandsons, Anuel and Aziel. Some of her ashes will be buried at Wildwood Cemetery, while others will be flown and scattered over Cuenca, Ecuador at a later date, where she dreamed of living one day due to the year-round good weather, low cost of living, and being far from what she felt, the hustle and bustle (she checked the weather there every day). There will be a celebration of her life and reception on Sunday, November 14th, from 1:30 - 3 at the venue, Nest 160, 160 S. Wilson Avenue, Bartow.

Please keep Luana's family in your thoughts and prayers.
