Cyril was born on September 6, 1935, the oldest of 8, to Edward Philip and Regina Veronica (Kathol) Mauch. He grew up in the Menominee area and attended country school the first 2 years and then parochial school in Menominee through the 8th grade. Cyril married Laverta Tramp on May 27, 1957 in Crofton. They farmed near Fordyce, Nebraska, St. Helena, Nebraska and Scotland, South Dakota until 1971. He then began working at the Human Service Center in Yankton as an aide. During those years he also worked part time at the Yankton Care Center and Burbach Elevator. He retired in 1989 after 18 years of service.
Cyril was a member of the St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, the Knights of Columbus and a Wood Workers Club. He made many items for the church, school, friends and family. Cyril donated many of his creations to various benefits. He enjoyed restoring old tractors and farm equipment. He could always find a use for things most people would throw away. Cyril was a very patient man who loved hunting, making sausage with the Knights of Columbus, visiting with his friends, shelling popcorn and telling stories of the past. He always had time for everyone. His strong faith carried him through difficult times. Most of all he loved being with his family.

Laverta and kids~ I am so very sorry to hear of Cyril's passing. He was always such a great friend of my Dad's (Dennis Bogner) and a very loved member of the community. I still proudly show the frames Dad had him make for my degrees and licenses in the office. They are so beautiful There's never anything that can be said at such a time that can reduce the pain, but I send you love and prayers and a hope for inner peace.
