Dolores LaVonne Patridge was born in Wessington, South Dakota, to Floyd and Gladys Patridge on July 19, 1932. She graduated from Wessington High School and married Darrell Siegling in 1950. Darrell and Dolores raised four children on their farm near Wessington. Dolores was active in her community and church and was a skilled seamstress and cook. In 1980, they set out on the biggest adventure of their married life planning, designing and building a home in Wessington. After leaving the farm, Dolores embraced the next phase of her life, going back to school to earn an accounting degree, and enjoying a career as the manager of the jewelry department at JCPenney in Huron, until her retirement. In 2015, Dolores moved to Sioux Falls, where she loved spending time with her family and her cat, crocheting, reading, and watching her great-grandchildren growing up, whether in person, pictures or videos.
Dolores was the last surviving member of her generation of the John and Bertha Siegling family. She was also preceded in death by her parents; husband, Darrell; and grandson, Steven Siegling.
Dolores is survived by her children, David (Kathy) Siegling, Huron, South Dakota, Darla (Sam) Lukens, Tea, South Dakota, Dennis Siegling, Tea, South Dakota, and Dawn Siegling, Lakeville; her grandchildren, Rebecca Siegling Hartman (Andrew), Winnebago, Daniel Siegling, Volga, South Dakota, and Alex Schaefbauer, Monmouth Oregon; her great-grandchildren, Sophie Siegling, Bradenton, Florida, and Cole and Leighton Hartman, Winnebago; her brother, Marlin (Janis) Patridge of Las Vegas, Nevada; her nieces, nephews and friends, her close friend, Hazel Rowen; and her special companion, Miss Kitty.
