Obituary for Sidney B. Teigen

Sidney B. Teigen, age 95, resident of Clam Falls, WI, died Friday, June 5, 2009, at Regions Hospital in St. Paul. Many relatives, friends, and neighbors are celebrating the life of Sid. Each of us is remembering the many, many things that he did. In 1914, he was born on the second day of May. He had an older sister, Marge, and together the two would play. He was born and grew up in the area of Clam Falls. He loved the rural area, never wanted to be near the shopping malls. In the summer, he liked to play Clam Falls baseball. He was a pitcher, and “Strike three, you’re out!” was often the call. When it was his turn to bat, Sid hit many a home run. For the family and the crowd, it was a lot of fun. Sid spent many hours catching a variety of fish. Time for another few casts, was often his wish. ‘Lec knew how to cook the fish just right. Serving a meal for her family was to her a big delight. Sid and ‘Lec for many years, planted rows and rows of sweet corn. There was planting, weeding, and then picking, a lot to be done each morn. The family garden needed many packages of seed. You’d have to look very, very hard to ever find a weed. For many years for Polk County, Sid drove a diesel truck, Working in the areas of Balsam Lake, Frederic, Milltown, and Luck. There were cows to milk, kids and crops to raise. There was so much to get done on those busy, busy days! Deer hunting was a favorite thing for Sid to do. ‘Lec used some of the venison to make a very delicious stew. The house was kept warm with the burning of wood. Sid liked to have the chainsaw running, whenever he could. There was always a dog by Sid’s side or on his lap, Even when he took a few minutes for a nap. This year there were 95 candles on his birthday cake. He nearly blew all of them out with big breath that he could take. We’ll all miss the many stories that Sid could tell, With a twinkle in his eye, a smile on his face, he did it so very well. Now as we plant our gardens, catch a fish, or see a deer, We’ll remember the good times we had with Sid and ‘Lec, each and every year. Sidney was preceded in death by his parents, Edward and Anna Teigen; wife, Electa; grandson, Gary; sister, Margaret Summerfield; and brother-in-law, George Summerfield. He is survived by his son, Bruce (Janice) Teigen of Grantsburg; daughters, Shirley (Ted) Zinn of Amery, Gayle (Wayne) Johnson of DeSoto, WI, Elaine (Duane) Jensen of Clam Falls; 13 grandchildren; 34 great grandchildren; 5 great, great grandchildren; many nieces, nephews, friends and Chico.
