Lyla Mae Westermeyer (Staude), 83 of Watertown, passed away peacefully in her home with her husband and other family by her side on May 3, 2023.

Lyla Westermeyer was born January 28, 1940, the daughter of Herbert and Meta (Biederman) Staude. She was one of 6 siblings who all grew up on the Staude farm in Johnson Creek, WI.  On May 26, 1962, Lyla was united in marriage with Peter Westermeyer at Immanuel Ev. Lutheran Church of Farmington. Lyla was a pioneer in establishing the first women’s softball league and first girl’s ponytail league in Watertown, WI. She enjoyed spending time with her husband Peter and watching her family grow up at their cottage in central Wisconsin on Fish Lake which they had for over 30 years. Lyla also showed her love for the community by volunteering over 20 years at Twice is Nice in Jefferson, WI. Lyla was an avid sports fan and loved watching all of her Wisconsin sports. Lyla will forever be remembered for her strong faith, the love she had for her family, and her strong will and determination.

Lyla is survived by: her husband of 60 years Peter; children Barbara (Scott) Krueger, Daniel (Holly) Westermeyer, Shari (Jeff) McGuire and Matthew (Heather) Westermeyer; grandchildren Tara (Steve), Broc, Josh (Rachel), Justin, Jenna (Keith), and Maddex; great-grandchildren Maverick, Brayden, Elena, Daniel, Gavin, Max, Kora, and Ofelia; and brother Herbert (Ione) Staude. Lyla is also survived by a number of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

Lyla is preceded in death by her parents, 4 sisters, and great-grandson John Peter.
