Lois Mildred (Schlichting) Schuetz was born February 15, 1926, to Albert and Sarah (Bergt) Schlichting on a farm near Potter, Nebraska, and was baptized May 7 at near-by St. Paul's Lutheran Church. She was one of four children. Her early formal education took place primarily in one room Lutheran Schools in Potter and Sidney, Nebraska. She completed her first two years of high school at Sidney, Nebraska. Her parents moved to Seward, NE in 1942 where they managed the Concordia Teachers College food kitchen. She graduated from Concordia High School in 1944, and then graduated from Concordia Teachers College in 1948. She taught in the Lutheran elementary school system for 40 years. Ten of those years were in St. Pauls Lutheran School in Ogallala, Nebraska, and, in four of those ten years she taught all eight grades. The next 30 years were in Faith Lutheran School in Denver with her brother, Al, as her principal. She retired in 1991. She married Wilbert Schuetz, an insurance salesman on August 6, 1950. He preceded her in death in 1974. They has no children but many of her nieces and nephews adopted her as their second mother.

Her interests included sewing, reading, and sports. She led an active Church life teaching Sunday School, choir, Ladies Guild, and Adult Bible Class. Her reputation as a seamstress followed her in her retirement in the form of quite a "retirement alteration business". She was preceded in death by a brother, Gilbert, and a sister Alma. She is survived by her brother, Al (Georgene) in Spring, Texas. She is also survived by nieces and nephews Tom Parsoneault, Donna Ellis, Judy Swanson, Joline Morrison, Susan Browninh, Kathy Reitmeier, Karen Pineo, Kevin Schlichting, Donna Mueller, and Janet Nazarenus.

Lois spent her final 5 years with her "family" in Spring, Texas, where she was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church. She would have celebrated her 95 birthday in two weeks. She leaves behind a host of admiring friends including family members, fellow-teachers, and a long list of grateful students. How well she lived her confirmation verse from I Timothy 6:12 - "Fight the good fight of faith." And Jesus adds these words, "Well done, thou good and faithful servant."

Lois was my teacher for 5th and 6th grades at Faith Lutheran School in Denver Colorado. I remember Lois as a tough master to school work, proper discipline and the word of God. But I also remember her as a sweet, caring and funny role model. For our school play In the Land of Dreams come true I lost my voice and Lois came to the rescue with a huge lemon, honey and tea and saved the day and the play! Thank you Lois for all you taught me in the lessons of life.
