Pat was born on a Wednesday in September, the 18th, 1957 to his father Dale Sievert, and his mother Darlene Anderson in Chamberlain, South Dakota. He was 7 pounds 13 ounces. He was one of six: Janet,(OR), Linda, (Europe), Michael Sievert, Sharon Sievert, and Kay (MN). Pat attended High School in Trent, South Dakota, but received his diploma in Jacksonville, Alabama.
In 1974, a young dapper man named Patrick Jay Sievert finally replied to a recruitment officer he had talked to three months prior. He was strong but was graded to Army strong. He accepted recruitment into the United States Army. This was one of his many great adventures in life. This is also where he proudly assembled, repaired, and painted ground to ground missiles and delivered ammunition. He was Honorably Discharged in 1978. He then enlisted in the Army National Guard, and was also discharged with Honors 1982.
PJ was such an incredible person and friend and comrade. He worked various jobs: K& M-Grain Elevator, and as a farm hand with dairy cattle for many years. He worked with his mother who owned P & M Moving with many family and friends. He also worked at Raven Industries as a machinist for over two decades. He also drove truck for his son, Shain and worked along side his son, Mikey and daughter, Shawny.
Alongside his work day, Pat has always had a passion for automotive repair, and loved wrenching in the shop. In 1983, he received a degree in automotive from Southeast Area Tech with a 3.7 GPA and graduated top of his class. PJ’s other favorite amusements and hobbies were avid engine building, humorist, cars and trucks, derby cars, motorcycles, boating, fishing, puzzles, baking and cooking, coin, key, and vinyl collecting. He will be fondly remembered by his love for general mechanics and could literally fix anything and everything. He was proud and honored to pass his ingenuity to all of his children.
He was united in marriage to Mary Sievert (Dreyer) on August 16,1983. They had four amazing children. First born, Shain Sievert, second born, Michelle Sievert, third born, Shawny Sievert and the youngest Mikey Sievert. Being a father was his greatest adventure in life. Patrick is preceded in death by his mother, Darlene Alberts, father, Dale Sievert, brother, Michael Glenn Sievert, sister Linda, and a grandson, Isiah Wayne Leiss. Having a stern yet very loving, courageous and open heart, his door was always open and his family cannot even begin to name all the people or families he unselfishly shared the “house” with over the last thirty three years. He is also survived by eight grandchildren: Serina Leiss, Siyanna Leiss, Kaden Sievert, Sabella Grove, Noah Sievert, Sabria Grove, Princeton Grove, and Thomas Sievert.

Anne Marie Mccullough - Print this obit
Anne Marie McCullough, beloved sister, aunt and mother, passed away August 8, 2019, at Sanford Hospital from a stroke. She was surrounded by her family. She died just five days shy of her 70thbirthday.
Anne was born on August 13, 1949, in Watertown, SD to Herman and Regina (Jellesma) Schaeffer. She graduated from Watertown High School in 1967 and went on to get her degree in business banking. She worked for CitiBank for many years, earning numerous awards, including the Citibank Service Excellence Award, Citicorp Service Excellence Award, and the President's Award. To expand her banking knowledge, Ann took additional courses through the American Institute of Banking, earning two diplomas. Most recently she was employed at Target Card Services working in the Fraud Security Department.
Anne had a deep faith and worked to learn more about her faith and enjoyed teaching others. She received a degree in Pastoral Ministries and, in April of 2018, received her Assemblies of God Ministry Credentials. She was a faithful and active member of Faith Temple Church and more recently Sioux Falls First Church, often volunteering in many different ways at church.
Much of Anne’s life was spent serving others. She was very involved in programs at church, including Pathways for New Christians and the Journey Growth Tract. She held many bible study groups over the years for veterans or others who needed Christ in their lives. She was a mentor to many, was a Life Group leader, and also volunteered with the Royal Family Kids Camp. Extending her reach beyond the Sioux Falls community, Ann volunteered on many mission trips, most recently to reservations in South Dakota, and was also very involved in ARISE Ukraine.
Anne was an avid reader. She was proud of her personal library at her home. Because she spent her life helping others, Anne had very much wanted to donate her corneas to give someone else the gift of sight, but ultimately, due to health reasons, was unable to donate them.
The most important person in Anne’s life was her son, Adam, who was born October 10, 1975. Anne raised her son in Sioux Falls near her sisters, Joan and Toni’s, families. They all spent a lot of time together. Sadly, Adam passed away at the young age of 24. She is finally reunited with Adam in heaven. After Adam died she became even more involved in the lives of her sister Toni and her husband, Keith Halverson’s children, Margo Smith and Susanne Gale. Anne became a second mom to the girls, a second mother-in-law to Margo's husband, Ross, and Susanne’s husband, Patrick, and was a second grandma to her great nephew and nieces, Carson Smith, Alivia and Brooklyn Gale. The group "traveled in 10" to every band concert, cheer competition, softball game, dinner out, choir concert, birthday party, holiday and more. They were always looking for ten spots so they could sit together. There were times when someone might not be able to come to an event but because everyone knew we traveled like a crowd people often questioned whether they should take that empty seat next to us.
Anne is also survived by her brother, Carl Lindner of Watertown SD, her sister, Joan Drovdal of Sioux Falls, and their families. Anne was preceded in death by her son, Adam; her parents, Herman and Regina; four brothers: Eugene Lindner, Maurice Lindner, Lavern Johnson and Lloyd Schaeffer.

Ardus will be remembered for her love of family and for always having Juicy Fruit gum or M&Ms in her purse to bring delight to anyone young or old. She never tired of hearing about the happenings of her daughter, siblings, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews. In her heart, she journeyed with them through the joys and sorrows that life brought their way. From helping to deliver the Argus Leader in the early morning hours with her grandson to teaching her great-grandchildren how to play cards and attending their special events, her company was a daily blessing to many. (This kind-hearted lady played cards to win, though!) Everyone enjoyed her homemade angel food cake; she was even known to have sent a cake via Greyhound for someone's birthday one year. Canning summer tomatoes from the garden was another specialty of hers. She kept updated on current events, and reading and connecting with others filled her days, along with the enjoyment of sending cards and notes to those she loved. Facing her own hardships during life taught her to be a welcoming and accepting presence to all she met. Her daily rosary and faith were sustaining factors for herself and others. She leaves us with memories of her love and examples of her kindness. She was full of grace.
Ardus is survived by her daughter: Trish (Don) Dorn; brother: Edmund (Anita) Meals in Grass Valley, CA; grandchildren and their families: Josh (Amanda) Strait in Regina, Sask., Canada; Erin Strait in Minneapolis, MN; Suzie Strait (Nick Turner) in Seattle, WA; Kelly Strait; Tom (DeDe) Dorn; Jerry (Laura) Dorn in Omaha, NE; Steve (Kim) Dorn in Loveland, OH; Michelle (Eric) Majeres; and many beloved nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

When someone goes away, it does not hurt death itself, but it hurts what goes on afterwards. It's a gloom that will never be filled. It is painful not to do something else for him.
We're talking about words we did not say and we could.
It hurts to know that we will never be together again, we will not see you and you will not be with us.
When someone die, we do not see them any more, we do not hear, we do not feel. But they do not really go, our hearts remember the them, we hear the smile, we feel the hug. Our memories become immortal. No, it is not a separation that hurts ... Memories hurts that weigh on our backs and make us look back ...
The End hurts ..............
Slobo you will stay forever in our hearts.
Wife - Marta
Daughter - Marinka
Son - Darko
Daughter in law - Milica
Lunch afterwards will be held at Tower of David community room located at 320 S. 3rd Ave Sioux Falls, SD
Funeral Service will be held Friday, July 12, 11:00 AM at Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church.
