Arleen Ringle Evjue

May 11, 1925 — September 26, 2023

Wausau

Arleen Ringle Evjue was born on May 11, 1925, in Wausau WI to Leander and Adele Ringle. She passed away on Tuesday September 26, 2023, at Rennes Health and Rehab in Wausau. There was nothing more important to Arleen than her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and many dogs. There was never an animal she didn't love. 

Arleen was a lifetime member of St. Paul's United Church of Christ in Wausau, WI. She was proud of being a member of St Paul's UCC and was an organist there for over thirty-five years. She was very active in the church and served on many committees as well as directing the Youth and Adult Choirs. 

Arleen graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in Occupational Therapy. She worked for many years at Marathon County Health Care Center. 

After college, she married Douglas Evjue and lived in Madison before moving back to Wausau. They had four children, Thomas (Stephanie) Evjue, Robert (Karen) Evjue, Lynn (Fredrick) Cupelli and Catherine (Lynn M.) Taschler. 

Arleen was preceded in death by her parents Leander and Adele Ringle, brothers Carl Berger and Ray Ringle, her son Robert Evjue, daughters in law Stephanie and Karen Evjue as well as her former husband, Douglas Evjue. 

Arleen is survived by her son Thomas and her two daughters Lynn and Cathy, grandchildren Beth (Josh) Peterson, Robert (Michelle) Evjue, John (Christy) Evjue, Xandy (Mark Roeder) Lehmann, Ralph (Sheena) Cupelli, Joel Cupelli, Anne (Monica) Cupelli, Andrew Taschler, Katie (Adam) Hall and Laurie (Alex) Garske. Great Grandchildren are Adele and Emmett Peterson, Derek, Elena, and Ethan Evjue, Riley and Gavin Lehmann, Fredrick M. Cupelli, Tanner and Carter Hall, and Max Garske. She is also survived by Mary Petersen who was her very best friend. 

A Celebration of Life will be held on Monday October 2, 2023, at 11:00 AM at St. Paul's United Church of Christ 426 Washington Street, Wausau. Rev. Nancy Johnson Russell will officiate. Visitation will be from 9:00am until the hour of Service at the church. A private graveside burial will be at Pine Grove Cemetery the following day. 

The family wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff at Rennes Health and Rehab Center in Weston, and Interim Hospice for their compassion and support. The family would also like to thank Christopher Ewan, Visitation Minister of St. Paul's UCC for the time spent with Arleen and family members.
