August 16, 1934—June 26, 2020

   TOMAH - Jane H. Schueler, 85, of Tomah, died Friday, June 26, 2020, at her home. She was born to Dr. Leo and Margaret (Gasper) Sheurich on August 16, 1934, delivered into this world by her father. She was baptized and confirmed at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, where she also attended elementary school.

   She was a member of the Tomah High School Senior Class of 1952. She continued her education at Marquette University, where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing in 1956. She returned to Tomah and worked as an RN at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Jane was united in marriage to Donald “Speed” Schueler on February 11, 1961 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in 2011. He preceded her in death on April 15, 2011.

   She enjoyed spending her time playing bridge and Scrabble, solving the daily Jumble, watching Jeopardy, and cheering on the Green Bay Packers.

   Jane was a lifelong member of the Queen of Apostles Parish (formerly St. Mary’s) and was strong in her faith; she served on the PCCW and volunteered at school. Jane was a devoted wife and a loving mother and grandmother. Her grandkids will remember her delicious cookies. They loved hanging out at her house, where they could always find whatever they needed. She will be forever remembered by those who knew and loved her. She is grateful not to be on this Earth to ever see the Packers without Aaron Rodgers.

   She is survived by seven children: Kathryn “Kiki” of Madison, John of Milton, Kristin (Dan) Lofgren of Tomah, Elizabeth of Madison, Paul (Amy Jo) of Tomah, Stephen of Tomah, and Gina (Nick) Templeton of Madison; and seven grandchildren: Halle, Charli, Cole, Cash, Quinn, Bonnie and Anna.

   In addition to her husband, Speed, she was preceded in death by her four brothers, three sisters and her granddaughter, Kathryn.

   A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Tuesday, June 30, 2020, at 11:00 the Queen of Apostles Catholic Church, 315 W. Monroe St., Tomah, WI. Monsignor Richard Gilles will officiate. Burial will take place at 11:50 a.m. at St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery.

   Relatives and friends are invited to call at the church on Tuesday from 9:30 a.m. until the time of the service.
