Bruce Muhlbach

Bruce Harlan Muhlbach, age 90, of Ravenna, passed away peacefully on July 26, 2019, at Seneca Sunrise in Ravenna. Services were held Tuesday, July 30, at Zion Lutheran Church (North Shelton), where he was a lifetime member and served as trustee and an elder. Reverend Micah Gaunt officiated. Burial was in the Zion Lutheran Cemetery. All memorials will be designated by the family at a later date. Bruce Muhlbach was born December 22, 1928, at Ravenna to Henry and Laura (Meyer) Muhlbach. As a youngster, he walked from the family farm to Zion Parochial School. He later graduated from Ravenna High School in 1946. Then, just before shipping off to serve (Army) in Korea, the war ended and he, instead, served in Germany from 1953 to 1955. He married Lois Niemack on June 5, 1955, with whom he recently celebrated 64 years of marriage. The couple made their home on the farm north of Shelton, where they raised their family. Bruce had a quiet, yet strong spirit. He had a love for his Hereford cattle, farming, the outdoors, fixing and building things, and … pies! He liked to travel and see God’s wonderful creation. Bruce is survived by his wife; three sons, Dan and wife, Linda, of Kearney, Gary, of San Diego, California, and Russ and wife, DeeDee, of Shelton; and five grandchildren, Jenna (Lance) Friesen, of Glenwood Springs, Colorado, Brett (Maria) Muhlbach, Nate Muhlbach and Jared Muhlbach, all of Lincoln, and Addison Muhlbach, of Shelton. He was preceded in death by his parents (Laura and Henry); and three sisters, Eileen (Marvin) Basnett, Dorothy (Phillip) Curry, and Fern (Bernard) Bredthauer.
