Evelyn Wachtl

June 10, 1919 — November 8, 2016

Evelyn M. (Sabrowsky) Wachtl made her journey to the company of the Angels on Tuesday 11-8 -2016.

She was born to Louis J. and Clara (Sousek) Sabrowsky on 6-10-1919 in Neosho, WI. On 6-20-1942 Evelyn married Robert W. Wachtl at St. Hedwig's Catholic Church in Thorpe, WI. She was a graduate of Thorp High School and Marathon Co. Normal School. Evelyn was a teacher and first taught in a one room school house in Unity, WI and later in Pine Island, MN. Later still, she taught at the State Grade School in Stanley, WI. Evelyn was the first lay teacher at St. Anne's Catholic School in Wausau, WI where she taught from when the school first opened in 1951 until she retired in 1975. She continued to volunteer at St. Anne's for another 11 years because "I love teaching and I love children". She and her husband Bob were charter members of St. Anne's Parish. After Bob's passing in 2012, Evelyn came to reside at the Highland House in Waterloo, WI. There she was the recipient of the wonderful and loving care of the staff until the time of her death on Tuesday. Memorials, if desired, will be forwarded to dementia research.
