Lois LaNere Sedlacek was born Tuesday, August 8, 1944 at Yankton, South Dakota to Benjamin and Vera (Fischer) Schmoll. In 1963, she graduated from the Mitchell Area Vocational Technical School of Practical Nursing. Lois was united in marriage to John Sedlacek on December 29, 1966 in Scotland, South Dakota. Always a hard worker, work was very important to Lois and she excelled at being a nurse, farm wife and homemaker. She found her 37 years at St. Michael’s Hospital in Tyndall to be very rewarding. She and John enjoyed traveling together to attend the Iowa Beef Expo, Black Hills Stock Show, the Nebraska Cattleman’s Classic, and the livestock show at the South Dakota State Fair. She was an active supporter of the local 4-H programs and enjoyed 4H Achievement Days. She also enjoyed working in her garden. Lois especially loved to go to her grandchildren’s ballgames, concerts, dance recitals, school functions and activities. Lois died on Thursday, February 21, 2013 at St. Michael’s Hospital Avera, surrounded by her family, following a 1 ½ year battle with ovarian cancer. She had attained the age of 68 years, 6 months and 13 days.
Lois’ memory will be treasured by her husband, John Sedlacek, of Tyndall; daughter Mary (Sid) Brandt of Tabor; three sons: Jeff Sedlacek of Tripp, Mark Sedlacek of Scotland and Jared Sedlacek of Tripp; two grandchildren: Wesley Brandt and Ava Brandt; a sister, Myra (Jim) Weber of Tripp; and her mother-in-law, Helen Sedlacek of Scotland.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Ben and Vera Schmoll.

Lois was a lovely person inside and out and an angel of a nurse, always compassionate with her patients and wonderful mentor to me. My prayers are with you all especially John, Mary, Sid, Jeff, Mark and Jared. This Psalm reminds me of Lois, she lived out her beliefs: The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. She is in God's arms now...

Lois and I go way back, as we worked a lot of nights and PM's at St. Michaels', she was always busy doing many little things for the patients and staff alike. She was a quiet person and very dependable, now she is in Heaven, she will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her and loved her.
