August 26, 1927 ~ September 5, 2021 (age 94)


Jane Ruth Muelver-Kluever, 94, of Weston, passed away unexpectedly September 5, 2021.

Jane was born August 26, 1927 in the Town of Hewitt to the late Daniel and Hertha (Meilahn) Weber. She grew up on the home farm in which she was born. Jane walked the literal 2 miles to and from her one-room schoolhouse. She was extremely hard working, especially on the farm. She began first grade at the age of 4, and at 7 years old, she drove a team of horses. At 15, she came to town to work at Marathon Battery and Marathon Rubber, assisting the troops with supplies for WWII. She met Donald Muelver at 16 and they married at the home farm on December 4, 1948. Together, they loved to fish and dance at Colonial Ballroom. They lived in Schofield and raised three children together. Jane was the head baker at DC Everest and each day, she was up at 4 AM to make 125 loaves of bread. Donald preceded her in death. She met Mynard Kluever, a church friend, and they married February 14, 1999. He preceded her in death. Jane retired in 1991 and enjoyed going Up North to their cabin in Land O’ Lakes. She often enjoyed fishing, baking cooking, gardening and canning. She was a seamstress, working on countless prom and wedding gowns. She was an award-winning knitter and crocheter and was truly the best at fileting a fish. She was so talented, had a great sense of humor and was so kind. She was famous for her apple pies. The world just won’t be the same without her. She will be truly missed, and we will love her always.

Jane is survived by her children Sharon (Dale) Zwicky, Debbie Muelver, and Don (Doreen) Muelver, Jr.; stepchildren Jan (Duane) Mueller, Karen (Bob) Kranz, Kent (Stephanie) Kluever, Jean (Dennis) Wunsch, and Thom (Dawn) Kluever; grandchildren Jeffrey (Megan) Zwicky, Kristopher Zwicky, Lucas Muelver, Sarah (Tyler Block) Muelver, and Colton Muelver; great-grandchildren Rhett Zwicky and Hunter Block; and sisters Irene Worden and Joyce Bloecher-Kastner; and many step-grandchildren and step great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, husbands, brother Daniel Weber, Jr., and sister Florence Vlasuk.
