Elaine Schuchard of Norwalk, Iowa, passed away on Friday, May 17, 2013, at Kavanagh House in Des Moines after a courageous battle with cancer. Elaine Ellen was born in Le Mars on December 27, 1960, to Berneice (Funk) and Arnold Bremer. The family later moved to Akron.
Elaine was an accountant and worked for the Sioux City Journal, over 20 years at the Des Moines Register and most recently for Marsh. She loved both interior and cake decorating. She also loved landscaping. Most of all she loved being a “soccer mom” and never missed her children’s games – or any family event.
Elaine leaves behind her loving husband of 19 years, Hal; her children, Megan and Matt; her brother, Doug (Lori) Bremer; her sister, Cheryl (Alan) Vetter; her father, Arnold (Patricia) Bremer; brother in-laws, Lon (Deb) Schuchard and and Craig (Jules) Schuchard; mother-in-law, Deloris Schuchard and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Berneice.
