John Steivang, age 93, of 625 N. Franklin St., Stanley, Wis., passed away on September 2, 2003, at Memorial Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Medford, Wis.

He was born on March 8, 1910, in Stanley, the son of John and Gusta (Cranberg) Steivang. He grew up in Stanley attending area schools and graduating from Stanley High School in 1928. He was united in marriage to Borghild Husby on May 23, 1934, at the home of her parents. He worked at the Studebaker garage in Stanley and then owned and operated the Northwest Oil Co. and later the Bartlett Co. of Eau Claire. In later years he worked at United Building Center in Stanley until his retirement.

In his younger years, John was an excellent athlete and was an avid sports fan throughout his life. His greatest enjoyment, though, was his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He is survived by one daughter, Ann (Jack) Olson of Medford, Wis.; one son, John “Butch” (Lynn) Steivang of Stanley; five grandchildren, John (Chris) Olson of Medford, Jayne (Sean) Alwin of Wausau, Justin and Ian Steivang both of River Falls and Travis (Kelly) Steivang of Chippewa Falls; eight great-grandchildren, Elizabeth, Patrick, Zachary, Josh, Alyssa, Christian, Kelsey and Sydney. He is also survived by one brother, Melvin (Nancy) of Stanley; three sisters, Lunna Ellsworth and Marie Richter, both of Waupun, Wis., and Gudrum Canney of Elm Grove, Wis.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Borghild in 1987; one sister, Julie McLeod; and four brothers, Martin, Arnie, Toby and Alfred.

A memorial service will be conducted at 6 p.m. on Friday at Plombon Funeral Home in Stanley, with interment in Evergreen Cemetery. Friends may call one hour prior to services at the funeral home.
