Dorothy "Dot" Siebers

May 4, 1919 — October 18, 2016

Dorothy “Dot” Siebers nee Timmers, 97, passed away with her family by her side on Tuesday, October 18, 2016 at St. Paul Home.

Dorothy was born on May 4, 1919 to Nicholas and Mary (Korty) Timmers. On October 24, 1948 she was united in marriage to Marvin Siebers and they spent 44 wonderful years. Together they adopted two children then six and 14 months and were wonderful and loving parents. Dot was devote in her faith, never prideful, led by example and preferred to work quietly in the back ground drawing no attention to herself. She was an active member of Holy Cross Parish and School in Kaukauna, over the years she was a member of the Christian Women, did bookwork for the school office, worked in the library, sang in the Queen of Peace Choir, was part of their prayer chain and volunteered at a homeless shelter. Dot was a Knights of Columbus Lady, part of the Foresters Investment group and was honored for donating 17 gallons of blood to the Red Cross. She loved sports, playing basketball in high school, bowling and golfing in women's and couples leagues with her husband. Dot challenged herself throughout her life with her own dark room, learning to play slide guitar, sewing items from her swimsuits to suits for herself with a matching tie for her husband. She was a meticulous bookkeeper and earned her certificate in tax preparation form Appleton Technical School. She loved to knit and crochet, making countless afghans, sweaters, baby blankets for church and loved crafting with a family group called the “Knit Pickers”.

Dorothy is survived by her children; Thomas Siebers, Kaukauna, and Patricia (Steven) Varick, Racine, grandchildren; Douglas Siebers, Andrea (Nate) Ortleib, Gregory Siebers, Nicholas Siebers, Lauren Sroka and Amy (Cameron) Schubert. She is further survived by great grandchildren; Ariana, Evelyn Emmett and Audrina, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
