Donna Sisel

July 18, 1945 – Sept. 4, 2018

Donna Sisel was born July 18, 1945, in Lincoln to Henry and Christina (Kudlacek) Fiedler of Ceresco and passed away Sept. 4, 2018, in Omaha at the age of 73 years, 1 month and 17 days.

Donna attended country grade school. She was a cheerleader at Valparaiso High School, where she graduated with the class of 1963. After high school Donna enrolled at Joseph’s College of Beauty. After graduating she opened her own shop, Set N' Style, in her future home.

On Sept. 19, 1964, Donna married Bud Sisel and to this union three children were born, Michelle, Rebecca and Ryan. After starting their family, she closed her shop to raise her children. In 1983 Donna went to work for Lucille Duer Hair Salon in Seward, which later became Shear Reflections. She attained many customers and friends there. Donna was faithful to them and loved them dearly. 

Her family was her first priority. She loved cooking and feeding a house full of guests. Donna loved her music; she would often turn off the TV and turn on the radio. She and Bud loved to dance. They enjoyed making the “loop” where they would drive around to look at the crops. She also loved nature and watching the animals, especially the deer, and working in her garden. Donna was a longtime member of the Assumption Catholic Church and Altar Society.

Donna was preceded in death by her father, Henry Fiedler; and father- and mother-in-law, Cyril and Albina Sisel.

Survivors cherishing her memory include her husband of almost 54 years, Bud; children and their spouses, Michelle Trojan and husband Ed, Rebecca Roseland and husband Brian and Ryan Sisel and wife Brenda; eight grandchildren, Travis Trojan and wife Abby, Spenser Zegers and wife Jessica, Lynsey Valenti and husband Andy, Callie Zegers, Alexis Crist, Logan Crist, Keaton Roseland and Carson Sisel; two great-grandchildren, Jaxon Valenti and Regyn Valenti; mother, Christina Fiedler; and brother, Grant Fiedler.

A rosary service was held Sept. 7, 2018, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial on Sept. 8 at Assumption Catholic Church in Dwight, with the Rev. Raymond Jansen as celebrant. A graveside service and interment were in the Assumption Catholic Cemetery near Dwight. Memorial contributions may be made to the Sisel family for future designation.
