Lucille D. Schewe, age 95 of Caroline, passed away early Wednesday morning, August 9, 2017 at Atrium Post Acute Care at Birch Hill, Shawano.
The former Lucille Dorothy Wollin was born May 10, 1922 in the Town of Underhill to Edward & Laura (Bistoff) Wollin. She was baptized and confirmed at Christ Lutheran Church in Underhill, WI. Lucille grew up on the family farm and attended a one-room country school. For a couple of years during World War II, she lived and worked in Milwaukee at Cutler and Hammer. On July 7, 1943 she was united in marriage to Herbert Schewe in Shawano. After Herb was discharged from the Navy in 1945, they lived for a short time in Underhill on the farm where she grew up. Lucille and Herb later moved to Caroline where they spent the remainder of their lives together. She later worked doing in-home child care and was a part-time postal clerk at the Caroline Post Office for many years. When she was able, Lucille liked to garden and bake. Most of all, she liked to take care of and be around her grandchildren when they were growing up. More recently, two great-grandchildren were added to the family which gave her great joy whenever she would see them. Lucille was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in the Township of Grant; she always loved to bake her lemon pies for the church’s bake sale during the fall Caroline Colorama.
Survivors include her two children: Judy Sousek, Leopolis & Ron (Ruth) Schewe, Sherwood
Grandchildren: Tim Sousek & Scott (Mandy) Schewe
Great-grandchildren: Kendall & Brynn Schewe
