Mark Harley Sievers was born August 30, 1955 to Harley and Harriet (Nordstrom) Sievers in Sioux Falls.
Mark graduated from Brandon Valley High School and then Dakota State University with a degree in education. He went on to receive his Master’s Degree in Guidance and Counseling from South Dakota State University. He was a teacher/counselor for many years. He was presently employed by Century Link where he worked as a commercial dispatcher (load specialist) for 27 years. He transferred from Minneapolis to Sioux Falls in 2015.
Since moving to Sioux Falls, he attended and was a member of Swedona Covenant Church, rural Brandon, where he had been baptized and confirmed. Mark enjoyed watching the Minnesota Twins and Vikings and was an avid Green Bay Packers fan. Whine in Minnesota, he attended many local games. He loved flowers and frequently brought plants or bouquets to his mother, with no special occasion needed. He had a quiet and loving spirit. Mark was a survivor. Beginning at age 3 in an auto accident, a job-related accident at age 19 resulting in permanent injuries, major injuries from a house fire in 2015 and most recently major surgery, he persevered. He accepted the outcome and repeatedly picked up the pieces and went on with life. While recuperating from surgery at his mother’s home, the Lord took him home without pain and suffering, by a heart attack. May he rest in peace.
Mark is survived by his mother and step-father, Harriet and David Wehde, Brandon, SD; one brother, Ken (Cindy) Sievers, Casper, WY; a very special Godmother, Vi Wehde; many cousins, and other relatives and friends.
Mark was preceded in death by his father, Harley Sievers; Godfather, James Wehde; and best friend, Charles Fredrickson.
