  • In my formative years growing up in Rowandale Baptist "The Tiegs" as we affectionately knew them were the most admired and respected couple in the church. I had the pleasure of knowing them both. I look forward to seeing them in Heaven. When Mrs Tiegs was turning. 100 I had the opportunity of visiting with her and took what I think was her first selfie. She fussed over her hair but she looked fabulous. A true example of a Godly woman. - Posted by: Karl Krebs (Friend and admirer) on: Jun 05, 2017
