Obituary for Arlene E. Teut
Arlene Eleonora Teut was born on May 11, 1921, the daughter of John and Emma (Schoenfeld) Christiansen. ξShe was born on the family farm in Crawford County, Soldier Township. ξShe was baptized, confirmed and married at Immanuel Lutheran Church - Soldier Township. Arlene attended country school at Soldier #3, parochial school at Immanuel Lutheran Church - Soldier Township, and graduated with the class of 1940 from Mapleton High School. On December 14, 1941, Arlene and Herbert Teut were married; they were blessed with the birth of four children, Judith, Gary, David, and Nancy. ξThey farmed in Soldier Township north of Ricketts prior to retiring and moving to Mapleton in 1975. Arlene and Herb were charter members of St. Luke Lutheran Church in Ricketts. ξAfter moving to Mapleton, they joined St. Matthew Lutheran Church. ξArlene was a strong Christian woman and very active in the church that she attended. ξShe served as a Sunday School and Confirmation teacher, participated in Bible studies, and was a very active member of the Ladies Aid Society and the Lutheran Woman's Mission League, serving in many capacities, including district offices. Her passions in her life were her Lord, her family and her friends. ξShe especially enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and working in her garden and flower beds. ξShe had a strong interest in genealogy and collected a great deal of information about the Schoenfeld, Christiansen, Wiedemann, and Teut families. Arlene was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Herbert, daughter Judith Glover, grandson Jason Teut, and sisters Evelyn Teut and Betty Weifenbach. Left to cherish her memory are her sons, Gary Teut (Kandi) of Schleswig and David Teut of Brainerd, Minnesota; daughter Nancy Bielenberg of Schleswig; son-in-law Fred Glover of South Sioux City, Nebraska; 9 grandchildren; 6 great grandchildren; her sister Marilyn Neddermeyer (Herman) of Ute; and brother-in-law Gilbert Nihsen of Charter Oak.
