Lois was born on Sept. 4, 1934, in Wakefield, Upper Michigan. After high school she attended Western Union School in Indiana. While working for Western Union in West Bend, she met Jerome “Jerry” Tieman and soon thereafter married him on Aug. 13, 1955. She continued her career progressing from secretary to an executive secretary at Square D, St. Mary’s Hospital, and finally retiring from Froedert Hospital in Wauwatosa in 1996. Lois and Jerry moved from Shorewood to Loyal. Once there they quickly got involved in their local American Legion and Ladies Auxiliary where Lois was once the president of the Ladies Auxiliary. They also enjoyed participating in adult fellowship activities at their home church of Trinity Lutheran Church in Loyal. Lois and Jerry enjoyed spending time each summer at their lake cottage on Lake Gogebic in Upper Michigan. They also enjoyed visiting their children and grandchildren. Lois had a smile for everyone and will be missed greatly.
