January 9, 1958 – January 30, 2021
Please offer thoughts and prayers for the Schmautz family
Carol Schmautz, 63, of Pierre passed away January 30, 2021.
A celebration of life will be held at 1:00pm Thursday, February 4, 2021 at New Life Assembly of God.
Masks are requested for in person service attendance.

Carol Elizabeth Davis was born in Dayton, Ohio on January 9th, 1958 to James and Eleanor Davis.
Carol would always say that her Mom was giving birth to her while her Dad was in traction
in the hospital due to an injury sustained in the Korean War.


Carol attended school in Dayton, Ohio and graduated from Colonel White High School at the age of sixteen.
She was married and divorced a few years later.

Carol joined the US Navy in 1981 and became a disbursing (payroll) clerk.
She served at the Navy Finance Center in Cleveland, Ohio aboard the USS Hunley
in Holy Loch, Scotland, and at the Naval Hospital in Great Lakes, Illinois. She was Honorably Discharged in 1988.

Carol married Duane Schmautz in October of 1987.
Duane and Carol remained in Illinois until Duane was discharged at which
time they moved to the Pierre, South Dakota area. Upon Carol’s first visit to rural South Dakota towns Harrold and Dupree,
her biggest question was “Where are the sidewalks?”.

Carol worked a few different jobs in Pierre but has worked for the State of South Dakota for over twenty years.
Carol was preceded in death by her father James Davis; mother Eleanor Shultz; brothers James Davis and Mark Simpson.
Carol is survived by husband Duane Schmautz; stepson Kurtis Schmautz;
brother Craig Simpson; sisters-in-law Joyce Davis and Debbie Simpson,
as well as numerous nieces, nephews, family members. Carol will be missed.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Shriners Hospital.

Bob Thielen’s Brother, James (Jim) Passes

Please keep Bob, Roxie and the entire Thielen family in your prayers

  James Thielen, 63, passed away on January 5th, at Good Samaritan Society Nursing Home in Sioux Falls, SD.

Jim was born September 25, 1957 to Harry and Millie (Schumacher) Thielen and was the third of six boys. Jim was a lifelong resident of Pierre and graduated from TF Riggs High School in 1975. He was a proud member of the 1975 Pierre State Champion Tennis Team. Jim was married to Mandi Warnick of Pierre for 12 years and had one son, Damon.

 

Jim worked for the Forestry Service in his early years and would be sure to point out all of the trees he was responsible for planting in the region. He was an avid hunter and looked forward to pheasant season every year and the opportunity to annoy the occasional land owner while “road hunting.”

 

Jim had a passion for tennis, loved to watch and to play. He wore a permanent smile as his 60th Birthday found him on court hitting tennis balls with former World #1’s, John McEnroe and Andy Roddick. He is sure to be found riding his Harley Davidson on the other side.

Jim was preceded in death by his father, Harry, and his mother, Millie. He is survived by his son Damon, his wife Jessica, and granddaughter Vada of Sioux Falls. Brothers: Robert (Roxie) of Pierre, SD, William (Robert) of Carbondale, IL, Jerry of Irene, SD, Mark (Michelle) of Springfield, IL, and David (Nancy) of Atlanta, GA; Nieces and Nephew.
