Obituary for Lois Ann Pietz

Lois Ann Pietz 84, of Ames, passed to her eternal home on March 30, 2017 at The Bridges Memory Care Center where she was a resident. A memorial service will be held at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Ames at 2:00 pm Wednesday, April 5, with a visitation one hour prior to the service. Burial will be at Zion Lutheran cemetery, Springfield, MN at a later date.
Lois was born February 10, 1933 on her grandparent’s farm in Redwood County, near Springfield, MN. She was always proud of her rural heritage and being a steward caring for the land. Lois graduated from Springfield High School and the University of Minnesota with a Bachelors Degree in Home Economics.
On July 11, 1954, Lois married Dr. Donald E. Pietz and to this union four children were born. When her children were young, she was a homemaker devoted to her family. Eventually, Lois opened her own business on Main Street in Ames selling old postcards, paper memorabilia and customized framing. Soon, she became a renowned antique dealer selling turn of the century post cards from coast to coast. Lois was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend to all.
She is survived by sons, Richard (Cheryl) Pietz of Huxley and Michael (Jody) Pietz of Ames; daughters, Meri (Ron) Coles of Vonore, TN and Dr. Patricia Pietz of Bowling Green, KY; grandchildren, Nicholas (Michelle) Pietz of Cedar Rapids, Nathan Pietz, Kacey Pietz and Brody Pietz all of Ames; one great grandson; sister, Marion Oelschlaeger of Plymouth, MN; and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Donald, and her parents.
