Obituary: Carol J. Stever

Carol J. Stever, age 82, of Brillion, passed away peacefully on Saturday, October 22, 2022 at Ascension St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton surrounded by her family.


Carol was born on July 9, 1940 in Green Bay, daughter of the late Wilmer and Lillian (Treichel) Klug. She was a graduate of Brillion High School, class of 1958. On June 27, 1959, she married Virgil Stever at Zion Lutheran Church in Morrison. Carol was employed at Zander Press for over 30 years before her retirement. Carol and Virgil loved to travel up north to their cabin in Conover, WI. There she would spend many hours with family, do girls weekends, and play various games. She also enjoyed casino trips. Carol enjoyed and was a part of the women’s bowling league for a number of years. She was an avid sports fan, always watching the Brewers, Packers, and any other sports for that matter. The most important thing to Carol was family. She absolutely loved all of her grandchildren and spending time with her family. Carol’s faith and Trinity Ev. Lutheran Church were also so very important to her, and when her time was ending here on earth, she prayed to our Lord with Pastor Henzi, and knew she was ready for whatever the Lord had planned for her.
