Louann was born on June 7, 1942 in Braham MN to Clarence and Ruth (Moline) Thunberg. She grew up on the family farm in Grasston, and attended school locally. She met Gilbert Lucht; they married on February 7, 1958. To this union three sons were born – Laurel, Lane and Lonny. The Lucht family made their home in Braham and later Grasston.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear that Louann passed away. She was my Sunday Scool teacher and later took me under her wing when I started working at Sunsine Villa as a nursing assistant. She and another nurse were so kind and helpful to me. I don’t know if I would have made it if they had not cared enough to guide me. I share with others how kind she was to me and it also reminds me to be kind to other as they learn. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

  2. I am so lost. I was Louanns visiting angel and later became her good friend, she was like a mother I never had.. We were gonna meet for lunch this past Wednesday and I was gonna give her are wedding picture she was waiting for.. I am gonna miss her so very much. She became my kids grandma and mentor. I hope she’s in heaven next to everet who she missed so much. I will always have memory’s and cherish them dearly… My heart truly hurts.. I just hope she has the beat wings ever up stairs… Yours truly Valerie… Fly high louann.. You deserve it. Gone but will NEVER be forgotten

  3. My deepest sympathy to all the family and friends. My heart was very saddened when I heard of the passing of Louann from Judy and Joe Paulson. Louann was one of the sweetest most kind woman I knew, many many fond memories and they will never be forgotten. I know Everett and Louann are now sitting together enjoying each other once again.

  4. Thinking of you, Lane, and all of your family, during this difficult time. Much love from Sweden, Julie
