Journalism. We believe it should help you live a better life.

That’s why we spend a lot less time on publishing mug shots and a lot more time helping you understand the employment market, figure out how to spend more time with friends and family with our events calendar, and what you can do to help businesses that have opened up. Make no mistake…we aren’t shy. We tackle the big stuff, like COVID and issues around race.

And if you believe in the value of journalism — that it should help, not exploit — please consider becoming a paid member of the Racine County Eye today. We can’t do this work without you.

Lois A. Fiegel, 91, passed away Saturday at Casa Del Mare, Kenosha. She was born in Racine, Dec. 6, 1924, daughter of the late Walter and Margaret (Nee: Leuck) Schroeder.

On Aug. 5, 1944 she was united in marriage to Charles E. Fiegel who preceded her in death, Mar. 26, 2015.  Lois was a longtime member of St. John Nepomuk Catholic Church. She enjoyed volunteering with Toys for Tots for over twenty-one years and also with Wheaton Franciscan X-ray Department. More than anything she was a loving and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother who cherished time spent with her family.

She will be sadly missed by her children, Thomas (Susan) Fiegel of MO, Paul (Therese) Fiegel, Nancy (Randy) Paulsen, all of Racine; her four grandchildren, Erik, Joseph, Benjamin, and Molly; nieces, nephews, other relatives and many dear friends. In addition to her parents and husband she was preceded in death by her son, Robert Fiegel; and brothers, Gerald (Dorothy) Schroeder, and Robert Schroeder.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Thursday, May 5, 2016, 11:00 a.m. at St. John Nepomuk Catholic Church, 1903 Green Street, Racine with Rev. Steve Varghese officiating. Relatives and friends may meet with the family Thursday at the church from 10:00 a.m. until time of Mass at 11:00 a.m. Private entombment will be held at Calvary Cemetery. Memorials to St. John Nepomuk Catholic Church or to Hospice Alliance have been suggested.

A special thank you to the caregivers at Casa Del Mare and Hospice Alliance for their loving and compassionate care.
