Tiffany Lynn Thielke Lesmeister was born on August 29, 1984. She entered this world one minute after her beloved twin sister, Breanna, in Morris, MN to her parents Gail and Charles Boe and Todd Thielke. Tiffany's journey through life was filled with moments of resilience, love, and passion.
After graduating from Minnewaska High School in 2003, Tiffany embarked on a brief but eventful chapter at Alexandria Technical College. She also took on various part-time jobs in Glenwood, where she found joy in the camaraderie she shared with her colleagues at Tom's Grocery Store. In the Fall of 2003 Tiffany's battle with AML (Leukemia) started. She went into remission until 2006.
Tiffany loved horses and spent countless hours trail riding and camping. Although her riding days were cut short by brittle bones, her love for the outdoors never wavered. Tiffany's doctors described her as a "unicorn sprinkled in fairy dust", a miracle from God.
Tiffany's pursuit of knowledge led her to the University of Morris, where she devoted herself to her studies. She had a thirst for adventure and indulged in the opportunity to travel and study abroad in Paris and Morocco. In 2011, Tiffany graduated with a double major BA degree in Human Services and Psychology.
Above all else, Tiffany possessed an extraordinary gift: the capacity to love unconditionally. It was this love that ignited a profound connection between her and Robert Lesmeister. They united in marriage on September 22, 2012, forming a bond that would forever endure. In 2017, they extended their family by adopting/rescuing their cherished fur baby, Zoey.
An artist at heart, Tiffany found solace and inspiration in creating exquisite paintings and drawings that captured the beauty she saw in the world. Her talent was recognized when she won an award at a prestigious juried art exhibit in 2022. She also found joy in the company of her loved ones during spirited games of Dungeons and Dragons and video game nights. Tiffany's home was a sanctuary for books, a testament to her love for reading and thirst for knowledge.
Tiffany will be dearly missed by her husband Robert, her mother Gail; her father Todd; her sisters, Romalea Stillwell, Breanna (Rick) Jepma, Hayley (Cody) Bouressa, and Shelby Thielke. She is also survived by her mother and father-in-law, Paul and Barb Lesmeister; sisters-in-law, Paula (Matthew) Larson and Joan Geleneau; as well as many cherished nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her stepfather, Charles Boe; grandparents, Ronald Gades, Lavonne and Eyvonne Thielke; and uncle, Jon Thielke.
The Celebration of Life for Tiffany will be held on Saturday, November 18, 2023 at 2 PM at Trinity Lutheran Church, Cyrus, MN.
