LINCOLN — Russel Wieseler, 50, died Dec. 10, 2019, due to complications from Frontal Temporal Dementia (FTD). A Rosary and Mass of Christian Burial were held Dec. 14 at St. Joseph Catholic Church, Lincoln. Burial followed at Calvary Catholic Cemetery, Lincoln. Butherus, Maser & Love Funeral Home handled the arrangements. Russel Wieseler was born September 1969 in Yankton, S.D., at Sacred Heart Hospital. He spent his youth in St. Helena, with his three siblings and parents. He attended Wayne State College, Wayne, earning his BA in 1988. He then joined the National Guard, serving from 1988-1994. He went on to build a successful career in the banking software industry. Russ was married in 2003 to Amy Lammle and they went on to have two children, Luke born in 2006 and Grace in 2009. Russ was a kind, loving, energetic soul that always put others before himself. He loved his wife, children and family fiercely. His infectious laugh and smile will be terribly missed. Russ was a devout Catholic and follower of Christ and we know that he is with his Lord and Savior now free of the confines of the disease that took away so many things from him. Russ leaves behind a wife, Amy Wieseler; children, Luke and Grace; brother, Phil (Kim) Wieseler; and sisters, Melissa (Steve) VanDeWalle and Michelle (Shaun) Busskohl; and his parents Joe and Romain Wieseler, St. Helena. Contributions in memory of Russ may be made to the family to go toward future charitable giving.
