Louise Ann Siedschlag
Louise Ann Siedschlag, 89, a life-long resident of Sugar Camp, passed away peacefully on Thursday morning, Jan. 12, 2023, at Dimensions Assisted Living in Steven Point with her family at her side.
Louise was born on Oct. 6, 1933, in Rhinelander, to John and Anna (Malawski) Grosman. She was raised in Sugar Camp and was a 1951 graduate of Three Lakes High School.
While in her teens Louise was bartending at The Old Pine Tree Resort on Jennie Weber Lake when in walked a serviceman named Frank Siedschlag and from then on, they were a couple.
Frank proudly served his country during the Korean War and four years later returned to Sugar Camp and within weeks the couple were married at St. Kunegunda of Poland Catholic Church on Jan. 26, 1952.
They made their home in Sugar Camp and began their family.
Louise had a can-do attitude and worked very hard her whole life. She was employed at Coates Bar & Grocery Store, worked in housekeeping, picked potatoes for Dave Woyak Potato Farm, worked at Rhinelander Foods, Campbells Clothing Store in Rhinelander, Simpson Electric in Eagle River and in 1998 retired from Twist Drill.
Louise was a member of St. Kunegunda of Poland Catholic Church serving on the Altar Society and various church groups.
She enjoyed baking, especially bread and desserts, loved flower gardening, furniture refinishing, and enjoyed learning, which led her to take accounting classes.
Louise will be remembered for her independence.

Also surviving are nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Anna Grosman, and her husband, Frank Siedschlag in 1991.
