Nancy Eileen Tiedeman

Age 88 of Wilmington, Illinois and formerly of Orland Park, Illinois died Saturday, November 19, 2022 at the Illinois Veterans Home in Quincy, Illinois.

Born October 31, 1934 in Chicago, Illinois, Nancy Eileen was a daughter of Joseph Adam and Eleanor Lillian (Genske) Sarat. She was raised and educated in the city and on February 19, 1955, Nancy married George Raymond Tiedeman in St. Priscilla Parish in Chicago. She was a dedicated homemaker who worked for Accents and Interiors in Frankfort before moving to Wilmington in 1990. Nancy then took a position with Eaton and Schultz Insurance in Wilmington, where she worked for the following 14 years. Nancy enjoyed playing the piano and crocheting. She had a love of playing cards, especially Kings Corner, and you could always count on her to have a bag of cards. She took pleasure in feeding the geese and ducks in the Wilmington Park and created many memories sitting alongside the river with her kids and grand kids. Family was always of utmost importance, and she will most be remembered for her time spent with family.

Survivors include her husband, George; four children: Ray (Cindy) Tiedeman of Prairie Grove, Arkansas, Cindy (Marty) Conry of Crown Point, Indiana, Caroline (Brian) Wood of Loda, Illinois and Cathy (Joe) Valone of Manhattan, Illinois; (10) grandchildren: Megan Conry (Brian Mustradi), Julie Conry, Alisa (Dan) Sloan, Adam Valone, Staci Wood (Mike Montalto), Christina (Jake) Brock, Max Valone, Andy Tiedeman, Arlen Tiedeman and Shenne Tiedeman; four great grandchildren: Isabelle Brock, Makayla Brock, Lillian Brock and Greyson Sloan; one sister, Jeanette (Wayne) Shust of Palatine, Illinois, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Nancy was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Doris (George) Formanski, and one sister-in-law, Joydine Tiedeman.
