Harold G. Thiel, age 85, of St. John, died on Monday, April 9, 2012 at the Calumet Medical Center in Chilton. He was born December 4, 1926 in the Town of Woodville, son of the late Mathias & Jeanette (Schmidt) Thiel. He married Dolores M. Scherer on May 17, 1949 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Sherwood. Harold had farmed his entire life in the Town of Woodville until his retirement in 1990 when the duties of the farm became the responsibility of his son. He was a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church where he also belonged to the Holy Name Society and put his love of singing to good use in the church choir. Harold was a 4th Degree Knight, and had been a Past Grand Knight for the Knights of Columbus, and had served as President of his Catholic Family Chapter. In his free time, Harold enjoyed bowling in couple's league, and looked forward to taking his lovely bride square dancing. Harold never turned down a chance to play cards; he belonged to many card clubs in the area and thoroughly enjoyed a good round of Sheepshead. He was a hard working man who knew that his labor and toil of the land was a gift from God. His patience and deep faith provided a solid foundation for his family to rely on and learn from. Harold went out of his way to care for the well being of others; he was very generous with his time and talents and freely offered a smile to brighten someone's day. Survivors include his wife: Dolores; his children; Gary (Jeanie) Thiel of Sherwood, Alan (Michelle) Thiel of Sherwood; 4 grandchildren: Andrea (Kevin) Svoboda, Nicole (Aaron) Keim, Vanessa Thiel, & Hayden Thiel; a great-grandchild: Clara Svoboda with another arriving soon; a sister: Alice (Ralph) Steiner; a brother: Leon (Carol) Thiel; a sister-in-law: Martha Thiel; and brother-in-law, Donald (Adeline) Scherer. He is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many friends. He was preceded in death by his parents; an infant son: Dennis Thiel; an infant grandchild: Angela Thiel; and his brothers: Cyril (Margaret) Thiel; Melvin Thiel, Eugene Thiel, and Fr. Lloyd Thiel, O.F.M.Cap. Funeral services will be at 11:00 AM on Friday, April 13, 2012 at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in St. John. Burial will follow in the Parish Cemetery. Friends may call at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton from 4:00 PM until 8:00 PM on Thursday, April 12, 2012 and on Friday at the church from 10:00 AM until 10:45 AM. Prayer services will take place on Thursday evening at the funeral home beginning at 8:00 PM. Harold's family would like to thank the staff of the Calumet Medical Center and the entire staff of the Chilton Care Center for all of the loving care provided to Harold.
