Obituary for Isabel Stevonek
Isabel Stevonek, 99, passed away Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2015 at the Good Samaritan Nursing Home in St. Croix Falls, Wis.
A bouncing baby girl was born to John I. and Marie (Nelson) Brandjord on May 21, 1919. They named her Esther Isabel Brandjord. She was the second child born to them. Six more came through the years. At that time they lived in Conrad, Montana.
Esther never liked her first name. She chose to be called Isabel. After a time the family moved to North Dakota.
In June of 1943, Isabel would marry Bill Stevonek. Early in their marriage they lived in the Twin Cities. Later they moved to a farm just outside of Milltown, Wis., where they would live until their later years. When Bill was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, Isabel made the giant step to get her driver's license. After getting her license, she also got a job selling Avon. They made the decision to sell the farm and moved to an apartment in Luck, Wis. Bill passed away shortly after that move in June, 1993.
After Bill's passing, Isabel made a car purchase of a Buick Park Avenue which she was very proud of. After a time, Isabel met a wonderful friend at the Milltown meal site. His name was Harold Smith. In January of 2000, Harold passed away very suddenly, leaving Isabel alone once more. After Harold's passing, Isabel moved to an apartment on Tower Street in St. Croix Falls. Then, in 2005, she, too, would be diagnosed with Alzheimer's and moved to the Good Samaritan Nursing Home in St. Croix Falls where her sister was already living. She remained there until her passing.
Though Isabel and Bill were never blessed to have children of their own, they had many nieces and nephews which they could enjoy and spoil. They loved children.
Isabel was preceded in death by her parents and 5 of her 7 siblings. Her husband, Bill Stevonek and her special friend, Harold Smith. She is survived by one brother and one sister and many nieces and nephews and their families.
A time to view pictures and have a light luncheon will be at 10 a.m., followed by a memorial service at 11 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 27th at Rowe Funeral Home in Luck.
You are invited to sign an online guestbook at or . Arrangements have been handled by Rowe Funeral Home in Luck, 715-472-2444.
