Lois J. Veleke

September 5, 2015

Lois Veleke passed away September 5, 2015, in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

Lois was born September 19, 1922 in Waupun, Wisconsin the daughter of Albert and Anah (Loomans) Vande Zande. In 1941 she married Milton Veleke and they had three children- Ronald, Marcia, and Richard. In 1953, the family moved from Waupun to Chippewa Falls and then to Eau Claire where she resided until the present.

Most of all Lois loved spending time with friends and family. Many of those friends were from her card club formed on the north side over 60 years ago. They stayed together for over 50 years, swapping quarters once a month. Occasional trips to the casino kept her interest after the club disbanded.

Golf was also high on the list for entertainment. She and Milt played many local courses and were in leagues at Lowes Creek (Pine Meadows) for many years. Many winters were spent in Nevada and California enjoying the warm weather, golf and, of course, the casinos.

Lois is survived by her daughter Marcia (Don) Eberlein, son Richard Veleke, daughter-in-law Janet Veleke, sister Evelyn Lemke and special helper Alice Veleke. She is also survived by grandchildren Holly (Chris) Dooley, Jeffrey (Trish) Veleke and Ryan (Kerri) Veleke. Great grandchildren Alyssa and Brendan Dooley, David, Corrina, Zachary, Alexandria, Nicholas, Samuel, Mason, and Mara Veleke. Also surviving are many nephews and nieces.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Milton, son Ronald, grandson David (and his wife Heidi), her sister Helen and brothers Roger and Kenneth.

A private burial service will be held at Forest Hill Cemetery. Pastor Cheri Miskimen will officiate.

In lieu of flowers or gifts, donations can be made to Mayo Clinic Home Health and Hospice Services or Chapel Heights Methodist Church.
