Yvonne Susan “Eve” Verkuilen, 83, of Bloomer passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, April 5, 2019.

Eve was born in Appleton, WI on June 13, 1935 to Edward and Marie (Williams) Rammer. She attended St. Joseph’s Catholic Elementary School and graduated from Appleton West High School in 1953.

She worked in banking while Vern attended college at UW-Stout. After Vern graduated, Eve became a full-time mother to her four children. As her children grew up, she worked briefly at the Pandora Store in Bloomer, taking care of their book work and then at the Bloomer Advance, retiring in 2000. She loved to read, take long walks and play with her children and grandchildren.

Eve was a wonderful wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother and friend. The children and grandchildren of Eve are very grateful to have such a loving mother and grandmother in their life. She will be truly missed.
