LuEva Mae Nytes, 94, of Sheboygan Falls, passed into the loving arms of God on February 13, 2022, at Pine Haven Christian Home. She was born April 28, 1927, to the late Arno and Lillian (Nelson) Mueller in Sheboygan and grew up in Kohler. LuEva graduated from Sheboygan Central High School with the Class of 1945, and attended classes post High School in Evanston, IL, at the “Cradle”. She was employed at the Kohler Company as a switch-board operator in 1947. On May 9, 1951, she was united in marriage to Robert Nytes in Waukegan, IL., and they raised their family in Sheboygan. Lu was employed at Evans Department Store from 1975-1988.
Lu and her family were long time members of Our Saviors Lutheran Church in Sheboygan. After 65 years of marriage, 57 years in their home, Lu and Bob decided to move into Prairie Crossing in Sheboygan Falls. When they moved, they became members of Bethany Lutheran Church, in Kohler.
Lu and Bob loved “Big Band” dancing and took many trips with family and friends on vacation tours. On Sundays they spent time with their family, parents, Neil and Shirley’s family, celebrating holidays, birthdays, special events with brat fries and German potato salad, and always a slice of delicious dessert. There was always a lot of laughter and smiles when the family got together.
Lu enjoyed cross-stitching, reading, watching her WI sports teams, Bingo, and keeping up with family and friends, by phone, cards and visits.
