Doris I. Tiegs

Doris I. Tiegs of Grafton passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Jan. 12, 2023, at the age of 90.

Doris was born on Aug. 30, 1932, to her late parents Mathias Hansen and Martha (nee Klein).

Doris was united in marriage with Raymond Tiegs and have been together for more than 69 years. Their marriage was blessed with six children, Lynn Tiegs, the late Paul Tiegs, Jill (Bill) Bertram, Al (Amy) Tiegs, John (Kerry) Tiegs and Gary (Debbie) Tiegs.

She graduated from Port Washington High School in 1950, then owned an antique shop and was a seamstress, but her full-time job was being a mother to her six loving children.

In Doris’s free time, she loved to sew, bake, spend time with her husband and grandchildren and make trips to the casino, where her sense of humor shined.

Doris was also a longtime member of her beloved church, St. Joseph Catholic Church in Grafton.

Doris is survived by her beloved husband, five of her children, Lynn, Jill Bertram, Al, John and Gary, 11 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. She is further survived by many friends and family members.

Doris was preceded in death by her parents, her son Paul, daughter-in-law Krista Weyker Tiegs and her father-in-law Raymond and mother-in-law Marie.

There will be a funeral service at St. Joseph Catholic Church on Friday, Jan. 20, 2023, at 2 p.m., with a visitation starting at 1 p.m.

She will then be laid to rest at St. Joseph Cemetery following the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital are appreciated.

The family would like to thank the staff at Forest Haven for their compassion and care.
