|Let the memory of Paul be with us forever|
Paul Francis Steuter was born March 4, 1922 in West Point to Henry and Catherine (Lummel) Steuter. He graduated from Guardian Angels High School in 1939 and attended seminary at Conception, MO. On May 20, 1948, Paul married Bertha Kreikemeier at St. Boniface Catholic Church, Monterey.
Following employment at a defense plant in Chicago, Paul returned to work the family’s diversified farming operation. He and Bertha moved to West Point in 1984. Paul was an active member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church where he served on the parish council and fourth degree Knights of Columbus, serving as treasurer and grand knight. With his love of singing, Paul was one of the original cantors at St. Mary’s and sang in the funeral choir. Paul was a member of Toast Masters and Cuming County Choraliers, served on the Board of Directors for the Farmers Coop, and was a Vietnamese family sponsor. Paul, who greatly enjoyed nature and marveled at God’s creation, will be remembered as a fun-loving man.
