The first female sheriff in Wisconsin was appointed in Kewaunee County by the Governor in 1925. Her name was Emma Lutien. Her husband, Charles L Lutien had been sheriff before her and died in a car accident. Emma was asked to stay on to finish out his term - the first time a woman had ever done so in the state of Wisconsin.
When her term was up, she was asked by the County representatives to seek election for another term, but she declined. Emma Lutien, first woman sheriff in Wisconsin lived for many years in a farm house just on the outskirts of Kewaunee, Wisconsin and in her later years in a house in town.
