Myron B. Poweleit, age 90, of Plymouth, passed away Thursday, June 19, 2014, at Rocky Knoll Health Care Center, where he has been a resident the past six years.

He was born Oct. 12, 1923, in Milwaukee, Wis., a son of the late Fredrick and Augusta (Richards) Poweleit. Myron attended Paul Binner and Lincoln High School in Milwaukee.

From little on, Myron worked in his father’s bakeries in Milwaukee. He would spend the summer in Elkhart Lake helping his father the baker at Schwartz Hotel. He met his future wife, Myrtie, in Elkhart Lake during those summers. Myron’s career was working at Square D in Milwaukee for 44 years until retiring in 1986.

He was united in marriage May 16, 1953, to Myrtie Tauscher in Milwaukee. Myron and Myrtie or M & M, as they were lovingly known, made their home in Milwaukee, Long Lake and for the past 25-plus years in Plymouth. Myrtie preceded him in death March 31, 2013.

Myron was a kind, gentle, quiet man. He played the accordion in his younger years, and he had it sitting in his room at Rocky Knoll. Myron loved to fish and go up north to St. Germain and trips to Cheboygan, Mich. He had a special place in his heart for all their poodles. Myron was an experienced dog walker and will be especially missed by his special friend Mattie.

He was a member of St. Mark Lutheran Church in Sheboygan.

Survivors include his brothers, Frederick (Donna) Poweleit, Watertown and Wayne (Barbara) Poweleit of Hot Springs Village, Ark.; sister-in-law, Ruth Tauscher, Kiel; as well as nieces and nephews.
