Evelyn Jean Schuelke

Evelyn Jean Schuelke, age 94, of Manawa, went to her heavenly home on Wednesday, February 1, 2023 at Theda Care Hospital in Waupaca.

On October 27, 1950 she was united in marriage to Harold D. Schuelke at St. Mark Lutheran Church in Symco. He preceded her in death on January 13, 1991. Evelyn was a life-long lover of horses which influenced her to help in establishing the rodeo in Manawa in the late 1950's. In all the years of the rodeo, she only missed a few performances. She was also a founding member of the Rodeo City Riders. She was the number 1 fan of the Sons of the Pioneers and was a special friend of Trail Boss Tommy Nallie and other members of the Pioneers. Another hobby of Evelyn's was her leather work - making wallets, purses and belts. She was a member of Faith Community Church in Waupaca.

She is survived by her children: Donald H. (Deborah) Schuelke, David L. (Cheryl) Schuelke, Carol J. (John) Mauser; grandchildren: David R. (Tamara) Schuelke, Daniel L. (Janessa) Schuelke, Shannon D. Bullard, Mike Mauser; great-grandchildren: Aleia Price, Mark Mauser, Madison Mauser; great-great-grandchild Marshall Mauser. She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
