Irene Bartelt

February 5, 1935 — June 28, 2023

Irene Bartelt, 88, of Wausau, passed away peacefully on June 28, 2023, at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.

Irene was born in the Town of Corning, Wisconsin to the late Frederick and Leona (Schultz) Steinagel on February 5, 1935. She married Henry Louis Bartelt on June 23, 1956 at Trinity Lutheran Church in the Town of Berlin. Together, they had one son, Calvin. They built their life together on the farm. Irene was a true farmgirl from snow shoveling and lawn mowing to her horse drawn wagons. She also grew a winter garden in preparation for the long, cold winters. One of her most beloved jobs was caring for other people.

Irene is survived by her adoring son, Calvin. She is preceded in death by her husband, Henry; her parents; and three brothers, Merlin, Harold and Gilbert.
