Shirley LaVerne Zwieg was born June 29, 1931 in Watertown, daughter of Arthur and Viola (nee Schramm) Zwieg. She attended Webster Elementary, Watertown Junior High School, and Oconomowoc High School. She married Harvey A. Radtke on November 14, 1948 at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Sugar Island. She was employed at Mimi’s Hallmark and worked as a secretary at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Lebanon. Shirley’s passion was genealogy and family history, which culminated in the compiling of the book Branching Out in the U.S.A.: Zwieg Family History. She was a charter member of the Watertown Genealogical Society and the Lebanon Historical Society. She was also a member of the Ashippun and Lebanon Fireman’s Auxiliaries. Most of all, Shirley loved spending time with family and friends, as well as playing (especially winning at) bingo.
