Lois Weiss


Lois M. Weiss was a voracious reader who frequently read as many as 10 books a week, her family said.

“She spent a lot of time at the Sheboygan library,” her son Rich said, adding it was a family joke that she had read through the Mead Library’s collection twice.

“She read a little bit of everything,” he said. “She brought many, many books home from there.”

But reading wasn’t Mrs. Weiss’ only hobby. She crocheted thousands of afghans, many of which were given to her family members, and she enjoyed working on puzzles.

She liked to travel with her family and watching sports, particularly hockey. She was passionate about the sport, especially the Minnesota Wild, but would watch other teams as well, her family said.

Mrs. Weiss died of pulmonary fibrosis Saturday, Sept. 15, at Cedar Grove Gardens, where she had lived since May. She was 82.

A native of Tracy, Minn., she was born on Oct. 31, 1935, to Leon and Clara Karbo Noy.

She grew up in Tracy and Lake Andes, S.D., and graduated in 1953 from Redfield High School in Redfield, S.D., where she played saxophone in the band and orchestra and excelled in art.

On June 5, 1953, she married Delbert Weiss in Redfield. They moved to Wisconsin in 1956, settling in Waubeka in 1960 and moving to Random Lake in 1969.

Mrs. Weiss helped her husband establish his business, DCW Realty & Appraisals in Fredonia.

“She was pretty amazing,” her son said. “She was a kind caring person. She was very good with her grandkids.”

Family, he said, was the center of her life, which also included room for her rescue dog Molly.

Mrs. Weiss is survived by her children Mona Welle of Green Bay, Barb (Mike) Sitzberger of West Bend, Teresa (Bob) Rivers of Green Bay and Rich (Lisa) Weiss of Fredonia, 11 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.

She is further survived by her brother Leon Noy of Torrence, Calif.

Mrs. Weiss was preceded in death by her husband Delbert, son-in-law Michael Welle, sister Leora Williams and sister-in-law Karen Noy.

At Mrs. Weiss’ request, no funeral services will be held.

Memorials to the MACC Fund are suggested.

Arrangements are being handled through Eernisse Funeral Home, Belgium.
