Evelyn May Katherine Fluth was born August 11, 1925 near Emery, SD to Thomas and Minnie (Edmunds) Fluth. Evelyn grew up in Emery, SD where she graduated from high school in 1943. She married Alvin “Al” Schnabel in Emery, SD on February 14, 1944. She and Al lived in the Bridgewater area and later moved to Sioux Falls in 1956 where they raised their four children. Evelyn was a lifetime member of the First Presbyterian Church. Her main enjoyment in life came from being with her family and friends, and she especially enjoyed playing cards, bowling and family reunions. Family memories were made while enjoying time at Pickerel Lake and the traditional family Christmases.

Evelyn was a life-long pet lover – from a kitty on the farm growing up named Snow White to her dog Gidget. She enjoyed seeing her “grand-dogs” and weekly visits from pets from the humane society.

Evelyn will be deeply missed by three sons and one daughter, Garry (Nancy) Schnabel of Austin, TX, Dan (Marylou) Schnabel of Sioux Falls, Doug (Cindy) Schnabel of Woodbury, MN and LaVonne Fosness of Sioux Falls, SD; eight grandchildren, Darren, Angie, Brian, Kristy, Jerry, Lori, Ryan and Kelsey; nine great-grandchildren, Hailey, Braiden, Jenna, Cason, Joseph, Matthew, Reed, Lucas and Shota and a special friend, Al Kroeker.

Evelyn was preceded in death by her husband, Al, a baby at birth, her parents, Tom and Minnie Fluth, and her sister, Darlene Bott.

The family requests memorials are made to the Compassionate Care Hospice or Sioux Falls Area Humane Society.

    Your mother and mine shared much more than a birthday, they shared families and friendship from 1958 until they could no longer get together and enjoy one another’s company.

    Our families are very blessed to have been a part of their lives and I miss both of them.

    Please know that they are in a better place and are once again sharing each others friendship. May you find comfort in knowing this.

    Ray Teske and Family
