Beverly Buetow

Beverly "Joan" Buetow, 76, of Eau Claire, died Thursday, August 28, 2003, at Luther Hospital, Eau Claire, Wis.

Joan was born May 21, 1927, to Frank and Pauline (DuPont) Swenson, outside of Fairchild, Wis. She married Luther Steen in 1948; and they had three children, Larry, Mark and Vickie. She later married Elmer Buetow.

Joan loved to be active, working for many years at Luther Hospital and Goodwill Industries. She carefully tended her gardens, butterflies and songbirds, and in the end made peace with the squirrels.

She is survived by her children, Larry (Kim) Steen of Elkhorn, Wis., Mark Steen (fiancée Donna Rongstad) and Vickie (Michael) Epson of Eau Claire; grandchildren, Chad and Aimee Steen, Deidra and Vanessa Solberg; great-grandchildren, Michael Martinson, Vance Steen and Connor Smazal; and sister, Audrey Rosta of Lakewood, Calif.

Joan chose to be cremated, with burial at the Cleveland Cemetery, Fairchild, Wis. Services will be an informal family remembrance.

The Cremation Society of Wisconsin is serving the family.
