Born on Thursday, April 20, 1944, Carlene was the daughter of Richard and Lorene Lohmann.  She was very close to her siblings Larry and Dolores.   She graduated from DeAndreis High School in St. Louis, MO. As valedictorian of her class. 

Carlene started her career at Southwestern Bell/AT&T and retired there after 30 years of service in 2000.  Her final position was as a Cost Analysis.  She had a very challenging and successful career.  She was not just a boss or co-worker; she was a friend to many there. 

She married James R. Wiegand on November 19, 1966, at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in St. Louis, Mo.  Together they had two children, Paul was born in 1967 and Jennifer was born in 1970.

Carlene cherished her time with family.  She was a very loving wife and mother.  As a family they traveled a lot.  She loved cruises and any vacation that included the beach and nice resorts.  Every summer she would plan a family vacation to a new destination.  Carlene also enjoyed camping with her family and friends.  James & Carlene are members at Cloud 9 Ranch.  They enjoyed taking many guests to the ranch.  Their grandchildren loved any trip there too, with so many memories made and still to continue. The family’s favorite activities there with them included horseback riding, riding the 4-wheeler on trails, swimming and making smores.  Carlene was the designated smore maker.  Her family would love to roast the marshmallows, but she was in charge of the graham crackers and chocolate.

Carlene enjoyed celebrating everyone’s birthdays, and anniversaries.  She loved singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY in person or over the phone.   Carlene was a great friend to many, to know her was to love her.  She was a devoted Catholic.  She was hospitality host for many years at Queen of All Saints.

Carlene will be greatly missed.  Our cherished memories of her will live on forever.  May she rest in eternal peace.
