Robert Sieve Obituary, Death – Robert Sieve of Missouri has died. His parents, George Sieve and Julia (Schweitzer) Sieve, gave birth to him on August 16, in a more rural part of Wilmont. He was their child. His education began at St. Kilian Catholic Grade School and was completed at Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic High School in Wilmont, where he graduated in 1960. Both schools awarded him a diploma. Robert joined the military on November 16, 1960, and his first day of duty was the next day. He was stationed in Germany while serving his country in the United States Army.

He served his country in Germany during this time. On October 31, 1966, he received an honorable discharge from the military. After gaining some work experience at Phoell Manufacturing in Minneapolis, he decided to pursue farming, which had been a lifelong ambition of his. The wedding took place on January 8, 1967, at St. Kilian Catholic Church, and Robert and LaVonne Einck exchanged vows in front of their family and friends. Before moving to their current farm, which is located to the west of St. Kilian, the couple was farmers in the region to the north of Wilmont. They moved to the Wilmont neighborhood in 2018.

He was a lifelong member of both the St. Kilian Holy Name Society and the St. Kilian Catholic Church, in addition to his service on the Wilmont Township Board. Wilmont Township is home to both of these organizations. He had been a member of Catholic United for the previous half-century. Robert looked forward to going to local farm auctions and mingling with his friends around the coffee table. Spending time with his loved ones brought him the most joy, but he also enjoyed going to casinos, watching the Minnesota Twins, working in his machine shed, farming, and taking long trips through rural areas.

Robert is survived by his wife, Vonnie Sieve, who lives in St. Kilian; four children, David Sieve, Roger Sieve (Jill Hartmann), Judy Heitkamp, and Brenda Freimuth; six grandchildren, Ashley Freimuth, Lexus Freimuth, Alex Freimuth, Hunter Heitkamp, Halle Heitkamp, and Hiltyn Heitkamp; and two sisters, Georgene Sanchez (Bud) and Rose Marie McGrath. His mother and father, as well as his two brothers, Walter and Norman Sieve, and his sister, Marilyn Hebig, all died before he did.
