Upon graduation I worked at Wi. Independent Oil Co, where I met my husband (Karl Buetow) a Milwaukee fireman. We were married 9/11/65 and lived in Milw for 28 years. We moved to Waupaca in 1993. In 2000, Karl passed away from leukemia. I remarried another Carl. We traveled extensively and internationally. I have traveled to Germany, Israel, New Zealand, Hawaii, Guatemala, Alaska, Switzerland, England, France, Costa Rica, Peru, Canada, Carribean and Extapa, Mexico along with many of our United States.
Carl and I had several "compassion" children and we even got to visit them. What a joy the children were!
In Milwaukee, while my sons were young, I worked as a seamstress for 7 years and then started my own alteration shop. I had 250 customers which kept me busy for 11 years.
