Donald Byron Schuster, age 84, of Omro, died peacefully at home with his loving wife by his side on Monday morning, December 12, 2011. Don was born April 5, 1927, in Waukau, the son of Joseph and Lucy (Washburn) Schuster. He attended and graduated from Omro High School in 1946. Don honored his country by serving in the Army in Italy during WW II. He married the former Elizabeth “Betty” Fiegel on October 29, 1949, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Omro. After the service, he worked at Speed Queen, and then farmed in Waukau for six years before buying a farm in the Town of Omro in 1958. Along with farming, he delivered gas for Clair Markert and worked for Tony Switlick. Don also sold and serviced Badger Northland Equipment for farmers for over 25 years. Because of illness, he retired in 2002. He was a member of St. Mary Parish, a lifetime member of the Berlin V.F.W. and a member of the Omro American Legion.
