OBITUARY: Elaine (Tikalsky) Stueber

Elaine (Tikalsky) Stueber, age 82, longtime Whitelaw resident, and more recently a resident of Felician Village, Manitowoc, passed away peacefully on Monday, March 26, 2018 at the Aurora BayCare Medical Center in Green Bay.

Elaine was born on August 29, 1935 in Brillion, daughter of the late Ed and Lucy Tikalsky. She married Al Stueber, the love of her life, at St. Michael’s Catholic Church, Whitelaw, on September 3, 1955. Elaine and Al spent the next 49 years together raising a loving family, building a successful business, and taking care of each other in good times and bad. Al preceded Elaine in death in 2004.

Elaine’s first job out of high school was in the office at the Brillion Iron Works. After getting married and moving to Whitelaw, Elaine served as the village clerk for many years. She also used her accounting skills to help her husband Al with the bookkeeping at the Whitelaw Sausage Company. By far her favorite career, and greatest passion, was as an antiques dealer and collector, which she pursued with unbridled enthusiasm for over 50 years.

Elaine had a strong Catholic faith and was a lifelong member of St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Whitelaw where she was a member of the Christian Mothers and where she will be laid to rest next to her beloved husband, son and grandson.
