GREEN BAY – A Wisconsin woman who began listening to radio broadcasts of Green Bay Packers games in the 1940s has been named to the team’s fan hall of fame.
Vivian Scherf-Laabs of Cedarburg was inducted as the 16th member of the hall of fame in a Wednesday ceremony at Lambeau Field. Scherf-Laabs was nominated by her twin brother, Stewart; they were born on the same day as former Packers quarterback and coach Bart Starr. Scherf-Laabs traveled to Miami to watch the Packers win in Super Bowl II and attended many other games at Lambeau Field and Milwaukee County Stadium.
As a Packers FAN Hall of Fame inductee, Scherf-Laabs will receive four club seats to a 2014 Packers home game, a trip to a 2014 Packers road game, a $500 gift certificate to the Packers Pro Shop and a one-year subscription to Packer Plus. Her name will be permanently displayed in the Packers Hall of Fame.
Scherf-Laabs was chosen from among 10 finalists.
