Leyola ‘Lee’ Wietor, 99

Leyola "Lee" T. Wietor (nee Strachota) passed away on Oct. 6, 2010, at Cedar Lake Health and Rehab Center at the age of 99 years.

Lee was born on July 31, 1911, at St. Kilian to Marie and Simon Strachota.

Lee attended St. Mary’s Springs Academy and graduated with a degree in commerce. Lee worked at Campbellsport State Bank. Lee also worked and was a vital part of St. Kilian’s General Store.

Lee met Al Wietor and they married in 1935. In 1955 Lee and Al moved to Bakersfield, Calif. They came home to Wisconsin every June to visit with family and friends and most importantly to fish on Lac Vieux Desert. Lee was a great fisherman and was the perfect "net man" to have in the boat. Lee and Al moved back to Wisconsin in 1971 and lived on Lac Vieux Desert. Al passed away in 1991. The last eight years, Lee would spend the summers in Land O’ Lakes and would winter at Cedar Ridge where Lee was able to enjoy her favorite hobbies of bridge and sheepshead.

Lee will be dearly missed by her sister Myrtle (Al) Krejci, her brother Orville (Marie) Strachota, Marie (Cyril) Wietor, Norma (Leo) Wietor and many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, great-great nieces and nephews and friends.

Lee was pre-deceased by her husband, Al; and her sisters- and brothers-inlaws, Agnella Strachota, Elvira and Ray Groose, Paul and Paula Hron, Al Krejci, Lucy and Oscar Boegel, Leo Wietor, and Cy Wietor.

A Mass of Christian burial will be at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 12, 2010, at Holy Angels Catholic Church in West Bend with the Rev. Gerald Brittain presiding.
