Evelyn M. “Evie” Goelzer, age 84 yrs., of Waubeka, town of Fredonia, Wisconsin passed away unexpectedly at her home on Monday, July 26, 2021.
She was born on October 25, 1936 in the town of Scott, Sheboygan County, Wisconsin to Henry and Elsie Kuhn Seil.
After graduating from Waldo High School in 1954, Evie worked at the Marshal and Ilsley (M&I) Bank in Milwaukee for five years.

She liked working outdoors. Evie loved to do lots of canning and freezing of her vegetables grown in the garden. She enjoyed making jam from her berries, often sharing with family, friends and neighbors as gifts. Her yard was expertly guarded by her beautiful flower beds with field stone all around. She was quite crafty and artistic in nature. Also known for her baking skills, Evie was always busy and will be remembered for her generosity and always thinking of others.
