Beverly Mae Schuster, age 71 of the town of Hilbert, passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 9, 2016 at her daughter’s home in Beaver Dam.
Beverly was born on May 16, 1945 in Hustisford, WI, the daughter of Harvey and Doris (Karnitz) Krueger. She grew up in Mayville on the family farm and graduated from Mayville High School. She was united in marriage to Francis C. Schuster on May 21, 1966; he preceded her in death in 2001. Beverly worked as a CNA for over 35 years and retired from Beverly Terrace in Watertown in 2010. She enjoyed bowling on several leagues, attending craft fairs, traveling with family on vacations to Florida and Las Vegas, going to casinos and playing bingo, collecting Thomas Kinkade and cardinal items, doing number puzzles and shopping on QVC. Most of all, mom wanted to take care of everyone else before herself.
Beverly lived in Hilbert for the last nine years with her fiancé, Arthur Eisenschink, until his passing on Lake Winnebago in 2013. Together they enjoyed growing and freezing veggies. Beverly treasured the time she spent with her special little friend, Abigail Marose, in Hilbert; she was like an extra grandchild and will be missed dearly.
