Devoted mother of James (Jim) Stiegemeier and mother-in-law of Claire (Egart) Stiegemeier. Cherished grandmother of Eric Schimweg, Michael (Brittany) Schimweg and Ali (Austin) Warren. Treasured Great Grandmother of McKenna Blake and Lola Warren. Very special connection with her Paris, Missouri roots and Dear Deaver Cousins.

Lois loved to learn and teach and never stopped, even in her later years. She achieved her Bachelor and Masters in Home Economics and Doctorate in Education. Lois even graduated from Lindenwood College (now University) when it was an all girls school. She was a pioneer and advocate for Women in Secondary Education and Administration. She was passionate about encouraging Women to achieve higher levels of responsibility in all levels of Education. She started her Career in the St. Charles Public School System in 1964, where she taught Home Economics, became Director of Home Economics and later became Asst. Principal at St. Charles West High School, where she retired in 1993.

Lois loved Cooking, Decorating, Holiday Shopping, Playing Marbles, Going to Oberweis (and got her granddaughter her first job there) Reading, watching her grandchildren, attending worship and getting together with her Family, High School friends, Home Economic teacher friends and Church friends. She loved to set a Beautiful Table for all Occasions and Present an Exceptionally Delicious Feast for her Family! She made many a meal for friends and for those in need. Her Loving, Honest and Openhearted Personality will always be remembered by her family and friends.

The Family is very appreciative of the Wonderful Care Providers at The Boulevard, St. Charles.

Memorial Contributions may be made in Lois' name to Immanuel Lutheran School, St. Charles.

    Words cannot express the love and gratitude I cherish for this wonderful woman. We shared some very special times together and I have warm memories of our times together. Whether it was grading papers, taking road trips, cooking, sewing or just enjoying each other . .. .. I will be thankful that God saw fit that we came into each other’s lives when we did. RIP Mom . . . .. I love you!!! ❤

    A light has gone out here and now burns brighter in Heaven. Lois brought great love, passion, insights and wisdom to this world. I shall miss her friendship, our long chats, the birthday celebrations and the kind heart she showed to all. Rest in peace, dear friend. You are missed.

    candle 8I met Ms Lois in April of this year. Although I didn’t get the pleasure of knowing her that long, I feel blessed to have had the time with her that I did. We had many conversations, lots of laughs and bonded immediately. She was definitely her own person and i could tell she was a very strong person throughout her whole life. Even at the time i met her. I will miss Lois Terribly. The Boulevard will not be the same without her. Love you Lois .

    Lois was one of my favorite teachers in high school. She made every one the students in our class feel special and appreciated. I’m blessed that she was a part of my years at SCHS.

    I remember Lois from the class of 1956 at St. Charles High. In later years she was our daughter Jennifer’s Principal at St. Charles West. Without fail every time I would see her over the years she would ask “how is your perfect daughter”, RIP Lois
