Norman E. Scheunemann, 85

Norman E. Scheunemann, 85, a loving husband and father, lost his valiant fight to cancer Wednesday, June 1, 2016, at Maritime Gardens in Manitowoc.

He was born Oct. 25, 1930, the only child of Anton and Theresa (Wendt) Scheunemann of West Bend. He lived in and around the West Bend area most of his life, first working on the family farm and later for several small companies in the West Bend area. On Oct. 6, 1951, he married the former Delores Race of the Saukville area. He was a kind, gentle soul who loved his family and doing things with and for them. He also loved to garden and work in his yard, but his biggest passion was meeting new people through his real estate career. Upon his retirement from the Gehl Co., he continued on in real estate. Norm and Delores took many trips to Phoenix to visit their oldest daughter, Joan. Six years ago, he and Delores moved to Manitowoc to be closer to their youngest daughter, June, and her husband, Mike Bemsdorf. He loved going to June’s farm and helping with anything and everything.

Survivors include his wife of 64 years, Delores Scheunemann of Manitowoc, and two daughters, Joan Scheunemann of Phoenix and June Scheunemann and her husband, Mike Bemsdorf, of Reedsville. Also surviving are many family and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Anton and Theresa Scheunemann.
