   Evelyn Ann (Wilke) Ploor, 103 of Sturgeon Bay, passed away peacefully late Tuesday evening, April 9, 2024.

     Evelyn was born December 17, 1920 in the Town of Forestville to August and Lydia (Diefenbach) Wilke. They moved to the Town of Sevastopol where she started school and graduated in the class of 1938. Evelyn worked as a nanny for the Kellner family after graduation. She married Wilfred Joseph Ploor on June 3, 1942 at S.S. Peter & Paul Rectory in Institute. They farmed on Ploor Road in the Town of Sevastopol. Besides helping out on the farm, she also worked in the cherry factories. In January of 1963, she started work at Sevastopol Schools as a cook and retired from there in 1987. They enjoyed dances at Fernwood Gardens and playing sheepshead with several groups of friends. Wilfred passed away on March 21, 1990. Evelyn was a good cook and baker and she made each of her grandchildren a denim patch quilt. In 1995, she moved from the farm to a house in Sturgeon Bay and in 2022 moved to Pine Crest Assisted Living.
