Betty Jane Mueller, age 87, longtime town of Meeme resident, passed away Wednesday, Sept. 10, 2014, at the Pine Haven Christian Community in Sheboygan Falls, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born Feb. 13, 1927, on the Wesener Homestead in the town of Meeme, a daughter of the late William and Clara (Scheib) Wesener. Betty attended Taylor School in the town of Meeme, and graduated from Sheboygan Central High School in 1945.

On May 17, 1947, Betty was united in marriage to Clyde A. Mueller at St. Paul’s U.C.C. in town Mosel. Together Betty and Clyde farmed on the Wesener Homestead in town Meeme, retiring from active farming in 1986. The couple enjoyed over 67 years together.

Betty had a strong faith, and was active in the church. She had been a member of the former St. Paul’s United Church of Christ in town Mosel and later was active with the congregation of St. John’s United Church of Christ in Schwartzwald, where she had been active with the Women’s Guild and the choir.

In addition, Betty was a member of the Edwards Homemakers and a volunteer for Meals on Wheels over 20 years.

Clyde and Betty enjoyed traveling throughout the United States, and playing cards with numerous card clubs over 50 years. Betty was also active for many years in the Tuesday Ladies Bowling League at Klemme’s Lanes (now JB’s Lanes). She cherished the visits, and puppy sitting, of her family’s dogs, Quincy and Grover.

Surviving Betty are her loving husband, Clyde; two sons, Russell (Lisa) of Kiel and Scott (Tamara) of Lone Rock, Wis.; and three grandchildren, Stephanie (Kyle) Heim, Daniel Mueller and Amanda Mueller; and one brother-in-law, Harold Henschel.

In addition to her parents, Betty was also preceded in death by two infant children, her brother, Elroy Wesener and her sister, Marion Henschel.

A funeral service was conducted for Betty on Sunday afternoon, Sept. 14, at St. John’s United Church of Christ, Schwartzwald (town of Herman), with the Rev. Melinda Feller, pastor, officiating. Private interment services were held at St. Paul’s Cemetery in the town of Mosel.

A memorial fund has been established to Meals on Wheels and St. John’s U.C.C., Schwartzwald.

Betty’s family wishes to thank the nurses and staff at Pine Haven, Hospice Advantage and Rev. Melinda Feller for the loving care she received. Thanks also to Mark Zimmer and the staff of Zimmer Westview.
