Carolyn J. Siefert, age 77 of Oldenburg, Indiana, died Saturday, May 30, 2009, at Margaret Mary Hospital in Batesville. Born November 25, 1931 in Brookville, Indiana, she is the daughter of Edna (Nee: Uehlein) and Edgar Hemke. She married Elmer Siefert on July 29, 1953 at St. Michael’s Church in Brookville. She worked five years at White Water Publications in Brookville, 10 years at the Village Store in Oldenburg and 28 years at the Srs. of St. Francis Convent of Oldenburg in food service as well as being a member of Holy Family Church, the Daughters of Isabella and an Oldenburg Academy Alumnus. For Carolyn and Elmer, time spent with family was important. Between raising a large family and working, the kitchen became the central hub of the Siefert household. It was there that family meals were prepared while the days’ activities were recounted or upcoming events and tasks discussed. Carolyn always made sure that no one went away hungry. Although a good cook, she favored baking. Her family fondly spoke of her wonderfully delicious cinnamon rolls. A devoted grandma, she liked to spoil the grandchildren by making their favorite dish for them when they’d come to the house. In earlier years, she enjoyed cross stitching and flower gardening. Those that knew her well will miss her wickedly dry sense of humor.She is survived by her husband Elmer; daughters Marcia Bischoff of Batesville, Monica Mares of Oldenburg, Mary Wallpe of Enochsburg, Indiana, Melissa Barnett of Oldenburg; sons Mike, Mark and Melvin Siefert, all of Batesville; brother Marvin Hemke of Jacksonville, Florida; 14 grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents. Visitation is Wednesday, June 3rd, from 4-7 p.m at the funeral home, with a rosary service at 4 p.m. followed by a prayer service conducted by the Daughters of Isabella. Funeral services are 10 a.m., Thursday, June 4th, at Holy Family Church with Rev. David Kobak O.F.M. officiating. Burial will be in the church cemetery. The family requests memorials to the Batesville Food Pantry or the Holy Family Cemetery Fund.
