Emma A. Mueller
Emma Anna Muller, 93, of Gillett, went to her heavenly home on Saturday, April 15, 2017.
Emma was born to Carl and Hulda Mueller in the town of Gillett, along with her twin sister, Esther Anna Mueller, on May 26, 1923. They were raised on a farm that the family operated until 1938, when Emma and Esther began working at a grocery store. They went on to run Mueller’s Supermarket, which they owned and managed for 34 years. Emma continued to work in a store until her retirement.
Emma and Esther (never one without the other!) were always seen wearing identical clothes and always ate the same food. They enjoyed spending time at the cottage on Shawano Lake with relatives and friends and always had a good time no matter what they did. They took many bus trips over the years, visited the Bahamas and Hawaii twice, and also went to Venezuela. They loved playing bingo, eating out with friends and playing cards.
Emma and Esther were longtime members of the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary and were well-known for selling poppies. They were devout Christians and were active members of the former Immanuel Lutheran Church, now Faith United Lutheran Church. They were also well-known for volunteering for any and all causes. Emma will be sadly missed.
Emma is survived by her twin sister, Esther, of Gillett; an aunt, Vivian Mueller, of Oshkosh; her nieces and nephews, Darlene (John) Olson, of Gillett, Gene (Judi) Schuettpelz, of Watertown, Duane (LuAnn) Schuettpelz, of Madison, Gary (Roz) Schuettpelz, of Rhinelander, Kevin (Jackie) Schuettpelz, of Pulaski, and Marilyn Mueller, of Gillett. She also leaves 15 great-nieces and great-nephews, many relatives and friends.
Emma was preceded in death by her parents, Carl and Hulda Mueller; her brother, Raymond Mueller, and his wife, Kay; her sister, Viola Schuettpelz, and her husband, Len; and her sister, Sylvia, who passed away as a child.
