Michele Steuck of Winsted, formerly of Chokio, passed away Monday, Nov. 8, 2021, at Ridgeview Medical Center in Waconia. She was 61 years old.

Michele Renae Steuck, daughter of Earl and Grace (Banister) Steuck, was born Oct. 21, 1960, in Morris, MN.

She grew up on the family farm near Chokio, MN, where she loved helping her dad milk cows.

Michele was baptized and confirmed at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Chokio. She attended school in Chokio, graduating from Chokio-Alberta High School in 1979.

Michele later moved to Winsted, where she worked at EDCO Products, World Wide Dispenser, and most recently, Modern Molding. She continued to live in Winsted until the time of her death.

In her younger years, Michele was involved with 4-H, which began her lifelong love for all sorts of animals. She enjoyed knitting, going to craft sales, spending summers outside, attending Minnesota Twins games, and watching the Minnesota Twins and Vikings on TV.

She is survived by her siblings, Eda (Charles) Stein of Clinton, Wendy Steuck of Chokio, Marsha (Dutch) Poel of Winsted, Doreen (Don) Plocker of Morris, Stephanie (Larry) Jensen of Howard Lake, and Damon Steuck of Hutchinson; and several nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and nephews.
