Decade by decade, times change, communities change. Lois Coyle Holzer has watched and experienced nine decades of changes in the Timber Lake community.

Lois was born a few miles north of Timber Lake, moved into town with her family when she was in second grade. She graduated from high school, married, raised five children with her husband, Mike, and was employed for 30 years in Timber Lake. Lois had a front row view of the community over many years. In addition to the view, the community and its changes have been a part of her everyday life for the past 90 years.

Lois was born on April 28, 1929 to Jay and Iva (McGuire) Coyle, the fifth of eleven siblings. She attended first grade at Taylor School in the country, then St. Joseph’s Catholic School until 6th grade.

Dean and his late wife, Mavis, began ranching in Dewey County in the 1950s. He and his five sons are continuing the ranch operation and currently run about 1,000 cows on 20,000 acres of land. All the cows with the exception of three are home raised. They are a spring-calving ranch that sells their production either at Fort Pierre or by private sales. In the past, Wulf Cattle of Morris, MN utilized the Schrempp calves in their feedlots.

The Schrempp family has used strictly Limousin bulls from Schott Limousin of McLaughlin and Wulf Cattle. Since 1975, the Schrempps have purchased close to 800 Limousin bulls.
