"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." 2 Cor. 4:18. Thanks be to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for placing Mr. Stuemke where he did, he touched countless lives as he lived a life of obedience while fulfilling his calling for the work of the Lord.

"Anyone can count the seeds in an apple, but only God can count the number of apples in a seed." Generations have, and generations will continue to be blessed because of the sacrificial love that Mr. Stuemke had for each of his students. He not only helped in raising three daughters, he also helped in raising countless sons and daughters of many a grateful parent. Of course he couldn't do all that he did without Mrs. Stuemke by his side!

I am forever grateful for the Stuemke family and the witness they have been to me and so many others. May the Lord continue to Bless and Guide your ways, both now and forevermore.

Mr. Stuemke always enjoyed telling the story of my first couple of weeks of 5th grade at Redeemer. Mom and Dad transferred our membership from Trinity Lutheran to Redeemer. I cried everyday, sobbing, cause I didn't want to go to a new school. I remember Mr. Stuemke trying to figure out why and comfort me to get me past the feelings. I did eventually get over it and he was my teacher through 6th grade. Over the years, whenever I saw Mr. Stuemke he would reminisce with me about those first days of class with him. He never forgot dealing with this sobbing, homesick child. But he particularly enjoyed sharing that story with my own daughters when they started school at Redeemer and he would be called to sub one of their classes. He was a wonderful teacher, friend, and Christian. He touched my life and the lives of so many others. God's peace to all the Family, Dor, Penny, Patty and Pam.

Proverbs 10:7 The memory of the righteous is a blessing. Dor, Pam, Patty, Penny, You have lost someone who will always be remembered as a wonderful influence in this world. I taught 5th grade under Mr. Stuemke from 1980 - 85. I have to tell you the story of how I came to Redeemer. I went to a Lutheran School in Kansas in the 60's, was inspired by my church youth group leaders to go to Concordia in Nebraska, then taught up in Rochester, Michigan for a few years. I decided to move somewhere more sunny. The movie Urban Cowboy had just come out, so picked Austin, TX as my next perfect destination. Lucky for me, my principal, Mr. Roy Kaiser had gone to school with Mr. Stuemke, so when I dared to ask Redeemer to fly me down for an interview, they actually did and I was hired! I remember him telling me how proud he was of his 3 beautiful and totally Texan daughters. Patty and I became roommates and dancehall buddies, and Mr. Stuemke probably felt he had more than he bargained for! I feel blessed to have worked with such a man. Mr. Stuemke's legacy of character and faith lives on not only in his daughters and their families, but in the lives of his many teachers and students. Susan Heinze Thames

Uncle Norman was a favorite uncle. There was always laughing and fun when he came to visit. I know so many were blessed by his ministry at Redeemer and his life in general. I know he would say "to God be the Glory". God's comfort to Aunt Dorothy and cousins and families.
