Sohrweide in Chilton 68 years

Sohrweide Insurance Agency, Inc. has been a fixture on Chilton’s East Main Street for 68 years.

Owner Deb Bohn purchased the agency Jan. 1, 2000. Previous owner “Eddie” Sohrweide loved what he did and he loved Chilton, Bohn said. She added, “I think the key to success is to find something you enjoy doing. I feel very blessed that over 31 years of working in the insurance industry, I still love coming to work. I started working for Eddie in 1982. It is hard to believe 31 years have gone by.”

Bohn added, “I couldn’t ask for better employees. Lynda Karls and I have been working together for 23 years. After all that time, we just know what the other one is going to do. Lynda is not only an excellent insurance agent, she is a wonderful person. Sharon Allen is my part-time secretary and brightens anyone’s day. Add this combination to a very loyal customer base and who wouldn’t love coming to work?”

Karls, an agent and office manager, has been with the agency since 1989. Allen has been with the agency since 2003.

Sohrweide Insurance Agency, Inc. offers a complete line of insurance including auto, home, farm, business owners, commercial lines, life, health, disability, annuities and bonding.

The office is located at 17 E. Main St. For more information call 849-4541 or toll-free 1-888-317-7075 or e-mail info@
