Florence D. Lindow passed away on Sunday, June 4, 2023, at the Clark County Rehab and Living Center in Owen.
Florence was born in Marshfield to Arthur and Erma (Wagner) Scheuer. She graduated from Marshfield Senior High in 1950. On March 1, 1952, Florence was united in marriage to Merlin C. Lindow.
Florence and Merlin started out their married life on a family farm by Chili, Wisconsin. After 8 years on the farm, they purchased the Penguin Drive-In, in Neillsville, which they owned for two years before entering the bar and supper club business. Together they operated the Pink Pony Bar (currently the Brickyard Bar), the Wildcat Inn and Riviera Supper Clubs, and the Blue Mule Bar (formerly the Silver Dome/ Munkholm's).
Florence was known for the great food served at the supper clubs, and the wonderful family style meals served for many weddings, anniversaries and other functions in the area. After retiring from the supper club business, Florence was also well known in Neillsville for the excellent pies that she baked, and that she was so proud of.
Florence is survived by her three daughters, Marilyn (Dick) Olson, Bonnie (Steve) Lipscy, and Brenda (Scott) Garlach; grandchildren Jake (Tonya) Lipscy, Becky (John) Scaletta, Dawn (Aaron) Griepentrog, and Ryan (Melinda) Hoffmann, Cole Schnabel and Dana (Scott) Gudgeon; great grandchildren Nolan, Gunner, Brynn, Kade, Ervin and Hazel; and four step-great grandchildren Michael, Brett, Andrew and Kaylee.
Florence is also survived by her five sisters: Margie Oppman, Lu Hein, Carol Schultz, Shirley Mounce, and Joyce Kilty, one brother Bob Scheuer, one brother-in-law, John Kilty, and many nieces and nephews.
Florence was preceded in death by her parents, Arthur and Erma Scheuer, her husband Merlin Lindow, brothers Jerome and Richard “Dick” Scheuer, one sister Mildred; sisters-in-law Kay Scheuer and Dory Scheuer, brothers-in-law John (Fritz) Schultz, Sonny Oppman and Phil Hein.
A private graveside service will take place on Friday, June 9, 2023, at the Neillsville City Cemetery.
The family would like to thank the staff and caregivers at the Clark County Rehab and Living Center in Owen for the excellent care our mother received the past two years.
