Evalyn E. Asmus, age 83, of Hudson, WI, formerly of Lakeville, MN, passed away on September 8, 2014 at Red Cedar Canyon in Hudson, WI.
Evalyn was born on November 13, 1930 in Chicago, IL to Erwin and Freedom. When she was 13 years old, her family moved to New York City, where she graduated from high school. She married John Asmus in 1951, and they were blessed with four sons: John, Bob, Gary, and Bill. They made their home in Lakeville, MN, where they lived for 40 years on Orchard Lake.
Her family was her life, and she loved spending time with them. She was the “ultimate swim mom,” enjoying watching her sons and grandchildren compete. She and John were avid travelers, who took many cruises, and enjoyed wintering in Harlingen, TX. Evalyn also loved her pugs, shopping, bird watching, gardening, and filling up her photo albums with pictures of her friends and family.
She is survived by her four sons: John (Lori) Asmus, Bob (Ramona) Asmus, Gary (Amy) Asmus, and Bill (Kristy) Asmus; grandchildren: Sara, John, Katelyn, Paula, Julia, Carl, and Steven. Preceded in death by her husband of 59 years, John; and brothers, Bill and JR.
