Lois Elaine Weidenbach, 63, of Lesterville, South Dakota, passed away peacefully Wednesday, May 10, 2017 at Dougherty Hospice House in Sioux Falls, South Dakota surrounded by her family.
Lois was born September 18, 1953 to Elmer and Gladys (McElroy) Kauer of Winner, South Dakota. She graduated from Winner High School and then went on to Mt. Marty College in Yankton, SD. Before completing her degree, Lois grew too ill with kidney disease to continue with school, but was given the gift of a kidney transplant in 1974 in Minneapolis, MN. She returned to Mt. Marty and finished her B.A. in Home Economics in 1981. On November 6 of that same year she was married to Paul Weidenbach of Lesterville, SD. Lois received a second kidney transplant in 1984. In 1988 they adopted their daughter, Elizabeth and in 1992 adopted their son Jakab. Lois’ battle with kidney disease continued and she received a third transplant from her brother, David in 2004.
Lois loved crocheting, cooking, gift-giving, and most of all she loved being a mother. By the grace of God, she was able to live a full, happy life despite battling kidney disease for nearly 50 years.
Grateful for having shared Lois’ life are her husband Paul of 35 years, her daughter Elizabeth (Ryan) Peterson of St. Paul, MN, her son Jakab Weidenbach of Parker, SD; her sisters Jeanne (Darrell) Mogck and Rosemary (George) Drapeaux of Yankton, SD, her brothers John (Elaine) Kauer of Vermillion, SD and David (Janet) Kauer of Renner, SD. Lois was preceded in death by her parents.
