Evenell Mae (Helgeson) Furlano passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on January 16, 2024, at the age of 90 in Stoddard, Wisconsin.

Evie, as she was affectionately known, was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. She was born on April 30, 1933, in the Town of Coon/Esofea, Wisconsin.

Evie is survived by her loving husband of 69 years, Greg Furlano Sr., and their children: Karen Long (Jeff), Steve Furlano (Deb), Kay Furlano, Karla Berra (Terry), Greg Furlano Jr. (Coni), Gary Furlano (Lori), Karlene Englerth (Mark), and Kim Furlano (Jim Michels).

She was preceded in death by her parents, Henry and Tilly Helgeson, as well as two brothers and five sisters.

Evie was known for her skills in the kitchen, where she excelled as a cook and baker. She was an avid Euchre player and enjoyed spending time with her loved ones, especially snuggling with the babies. Evie was also a devoted friend to many and had a knack for finding treasures at rummage sales.
