Sharyn J. Eulert (nee Cypher), of Eulert Accounting in West Bend, passed away Friday, April 23, 2010, at Waukesha Memorial Hospital after a short battle with cancer.

Sharyn was born to the late Paul and Inez (nee Iams) Cypher of West Bend on Nov. 1, 1946. She graduated from West Bend High School in 1964 and went on to study accounting at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, where she met her husband, Vernon Eulert. Sharyn graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Whitewater in 1968 and began her career as a field auditor with the Wisconsin Department of Revenue.

On Aug. 12, 1972, Sharyn was united in marriage to the love of her life, Vernon Eulert. That same year, she started her own accounting and tax firm in West Bend. In 1981, she was joined in her business by her husband and together they organized Eulert Accounting in West Bend. She had a passion for her tax and accounting business, which she enjoyed operating with her husband up until her passing.

Sharyn passed the IRS Enrolled Agent Exam in 1980. She was a member of the National Association of Enrolled Agents and the Wisconsin Society of Enrolled Agents and a prior member of the National Association of Tax Preparers.

She enjoyed flowers, gardening, growing pumpkins, and gourds. She also enjoyed traveling with her husband and good friends Dan and Judy Eudaly of Germantown.

She is further survived by her very special employees and "adopted children," Margaret Jorasz, Barbara Klumpyan, Susan Klumb, and Sharon Walter, as well as her cat, Lucky.
