Addie was born on December 20, 1930 to Rudolph and Frances (Holthaus) Pelzer in Pearl Lake. She married Harvey Laudenbach on October 19, 1950 at St. Mary Help of Christians Church. Together they raised 13 children. They lived in St. Augusta for most of their lives on a farm that is now called River Bluffs Regional Park.

She was a member of St. Mary Help of Christians Church, Night Worship Group, St. Anne’s Christian Women, Daughters of Isabella, Housewives Group, Cruiser Apostleship, St. Augusta American Legion Substation 621 and Card Group for 50 years.
Addie loved gardening and growing raspberries and blackberries to make her delicious jam. She enjoyed bowling, cribbage, prayer, EWTN, trips to the casino, Keno, the game show network, and private visits with friends and family. She found great joy in giving gifts at Christmas to all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She liked to make homemade rosaries and donated them. Addie was a special woman who was strong in her beliefs and compassionate like no other. She was a woman of prayer and faith and taught her 13 children to do the same.
