Evelyn H.  “Evy” Gruendemann passed away Thursday, February 8, 2024, at Ivy Manor in West Bend at age of 93.


The former Evelyn H.

Gruendemann at Trinity Ev. Lutheran Church in Manitowoc, he preceded her in death on August 2, 1994.


Prior to her marriage Evy worked at Mirro Aluminum Company and the Manitowoc Herald Times.  Evy was a stay-at-home mom while her girls were young and later worked at the West Bend Hotel, retiring in 1991.  She was a member of St. Lucas Ev. Lutheran Church in Kewaskum and later a member of Good Shepherd Ev. Lutheran Church in West Bend.  Evy was a talented seamstress, sewing her own wedding dress.  She enjoyed knitting and crocheting, making many stocking caps, baby blankets, & afghans that her family will continue to cherish.   Our mom was beautiful, sweet, kind, and generous and we will miss her dearly.
