Obituary For Lucille Rita Jamieson
Verona, WI - Lucille Rita ‘Lou’ Jamieson , age 101, passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 3, 2023 at Sonrisas Assisted Living in Verona. She was born on September 11, 1921, one of 10 children to Natalia Rose (Grabowski) and Michael Caspar Schwarz. Born in Salem, Oregon, the family moved back to Mazomanie, WI when Lou was 8. She is survived by her sons Howard ‘Mick’ (Sue), Joe (Diane), Bob Coward (Linda), daughter Carole (John) and son-in-law Michael ‘Mike’ Andreas, several grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by loving husband Howard, infant daughter Mary and daughter Juanita ‘Sue’, her parents and 9 siblings.
After graduating from high school, Lou was employed by Commonwealth Telephone Company, UW-Madison Chadbourne Hall, & State Depts of Taxation and Vet Affairs as a bookkeeper/typist. She married Howard in 1947 and got her final promotion to wife & mother and bookkeeper for the family business of Jamieson Filing System. After Howard’s passing she spent much of her time with special friend and next door neighbor Richard Crimmins.
Since retirement, she spent much of her time as an avid card player, writing about her trips, tutoring special needs children, having book discussions with 4-5th graders and other volunteer activities. She had such a strong sense of family (large family gatherings at holidays were a must),and a strong faith, attending daily mass when she could. She was a generous, loving person that we are proud to call mother/grandmother. A special thanks to all the caregivers who enabled her to lead her best life in her final years.

Tiffany Foster went out of her way to fulfill all my requests, talked me through problems I was facing, and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible when I was a wreck, totally crushed, and I thank her with all of my heart for that.

Skyler was absolutely amazing. She was so caring and helpful through this whole process. She even went above and beyond to meet with us in DeForest and even to make a stop at our home to drop off or pick up anything needed. While it was a small gesture, it was so helpful and greatly appreciated.
