Nancy Stiener met her husband at her first job


Nancy Buroker Stiener, age 79, grew up in Beloit, WI, attended Beloit Memorial High School, and lived most of her adult life in Rockton, IL. Her first job was at Beloit Corporation where she met Joel Stiener, her husband of 46 years. She went on to build an impressive 40-year career at Fairbanks Morse in Beloit. 

Nancy passed away Friday, September 9, 2022 at UW Health University Hospital in Madison, WI.

Nancy and Joel enjoyed retirement in sunny Naples, FL, playing golf, dancing, going to the beach, shopping, and enjoying time with friends. She was an active member of Shepherd of the Glades Lutheran Church in Naples. Nancy was an accomplished mahjong player, enjoyed playing cards, and the occasional trip to the casino to play the slots. She loved to entertain her friends, bake her famous chocolate sheet cake, and made sure no one ever had an empty glass. Nancy was dedicated to her family. She was the first one to say, “You always keep your family first!”

Nancy is preceded in death by her husband, Joel Stiener; parents, Keith and Darlene Buroker; and her sister, Judy Buchs.

She is survived by her children, James (Valerie) Stiener and Jody (Joseph) Stiener-Tomilonus; four grandchildren, Gina Tomilonus, Chase (Lindsey) Stiener, Tania (Chelsea) Tomilonus-Mutton, and Sydney (Will) Stiener-Bringgold; brother, Jim (Barb) Buroker; brother-in-law, Jerry Buchs and many nieces and nephews.
