Aletta I. (Quaas) Stautz

January 19, 1929 ~ December 18, 2018 (age 89)

Aletta I. Stautz, 89, of Kewaskum, passed away and found peace on Tuesday, December 18, 2018.

She was born on Jan 9, 1929 to the late Herman and Aletta (nee Peters) Quaas in West Bend. On October 15, 1949, she was united in marriage to Clayton Stautz at St. John’s Lutheran Church in West Bend.  She was a beloved wife, mother, and grandmother.  Aletta was a member of Peace United Church of Christ.  She tirelessly served on the Women’s Guild, taught Sunday school, and was involved in the Legion Auxiliary and the annual Easter Egg Hunt.  Aletta worked in the Kewaskum High School lunchroom.  Aletta and Clayton placed flags and flowers at the grave sites of veterans at many cemeteries in the area for many years. She had a true heart and love for serving others in her community. 

Aletta enjoyed camping with her family and friends and was a member of a bowling league.   She enjoyed gardening with her husband, Clayton, as they canned and baked many delicious items together.  Aletta frequently baked for the funerals of others.  Although serving others in her community was a hallmark of Aletta’s personality, her love for her family always came first.  She was a strong woman who kept everything organized for everyone.  Aletta cherished spending time with her children and grandchildren.  She will be dearly missed by everyone.

Those Aletta leaves behind to cherish her memory include her three children, Kevin (Laura) Stautz of Kewaskum, Stuart (Shirley) Stautz of Gurnee, Illinois, and Joanne Stautz of West Bend; grandchildren, Samantha Stautz, Amanda Stautz, Drew Daugherty, Alexia Stautz, Nicholas Stautz; two brothers, Wilmer (Edna) Quass of Port Washington; Donald Quass of West Bend; two sisters Orlean Lepien of Hartford; Myrtle (Dan) Fischer of Kewaskum; a brother-in-law, Floyd (Ellen) Stautz of Madison; a sister-in-law, Alice Stautz of Shawano and other nieces, nephews; other relatives and friends.

In addition to her parents, Aletta was preceded in death by her husband, Clayton Stautz; two sisters, Ludella Fletcher and Elma (Leroy) Thoms; and two brothers-in-law, Gene Lepien and Jerome Stautz.

A funeral service for Aletta will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 23, 2018, at Peace United Church of Christ, 343 First Street, in Kewaskum with Rev. Eric Kirkegaard officiating.

Aletta’s family will greet relatives and friends at the church on Sunday from 1:00 p.m. until the time of service.
