Tieman, Donald (25 DEC 1907 – 29 NOV 1967)

Services were held at 2 p.m. Saturday at Grace Methodist Church, Greenwood, for Donald Tieman Sr., 59, route 2, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), who died unexpectedly at his home at 9 a.m. Wednesday. The Rev. Carl Booher officiated and burial was made in the Greenwood Cemetery.

Mr. Tieman was born in Beloit Dec. 25, 1907, and was 8 years of age when his parents moved to Butlerville (Clark Co.), where he received his education.

After his marriage at Braun Settlement on June 2, 1917 to Lydia Wessel, the couple farmed near Thorp until 1940, when they moved to a farm in the Greenwood area. They retired in 1965, but continued to reside on the farm.

Mr. Tieman had served as supervisor of the town of Eaton, and as Clark County Republican Chairman in 1966. He was reelected to that office this year, but resigned shortly afterwards for health reasons.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Charles (Violet) Hoeper, Neillsville, and Mrs. James (Lila) Oelafen, Menomonee Falls; three sons, Donald Jr. and Roger, both of Greenwood, and Robert, Sussex; his father, Charles Tieman Sr., Beloit; two brothers, Charles Jr., Thorp, and Glenn, Owen; a sister, Mrs. Donald (Elsie) Ingham, Beloit, and 13 grandchildren.

Two brothers, Thomas and Earl, and his mother preceded him in death.
