Adelaide “Laddie” (Walczak) C. Sieger

August 24, 1934 — January 5, 2024

Lakeside

Adelaide C. “Laddie” (Walczak) Sieger, formerly of Lakeside, died Friday, Jan. 5, at the Benedictine Health Center, with her family by her side. Laddie was born in Duluth on Aug. 24, 1934, to Leo and Frances Walczak. She graduated from Duluth Cathedral. She played the accordion, was involved in band, the Girls’ Athletic Association, and choir. In her words, “I couldn’t sing on key for anything!” She worked at Northern City National Bank and Oliver Iron Mining. She met Larry Sieger and they were married on June 28, 1958. Laddie loved volleyball and won city championships with her Lester Park Ladies, enjoyed spending time at the cabin on Little Grand Lake, going to the casino, spending time with family and friends, cheering at her kids and grandkids events, both sporting and performances, and was absolutely crazy about her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Laddie had a quick wit and humor, and she leaves a legacy of joy, grace, and love of family. She was preceded in death by her parents, Leo and Frances, her brother Bob (Mary) Walczak, and nephews, Gary and Tony Walczak.

Laddie is survived by her husband and best friend, Larry; her children, Tom (Sue) Sieger, Terry (Gary) Gilbert, Kelly (Brian Jones) Sieger, and Todd (Laura) Sieger; her grandchildren, Kendra (Chuck) Goldsworthy, Katie (Gabriel) Puterbaugh, Jillayne Gilbert, Dylan Sieger Cox, Macy and Nya Sieger; her great grandchildren, Sophie, Isley and Jackson Goldsworthy; her nephews, a niece, extended family, and lifelong friends.
