Theophil Eugene Diemer, pastor of Zion Lutheran Church, Stratford, was born April 11, 1891, at Woodville, Wisconsin, the son of the Reverend and Mrs. George Diemer. They moved six weeks later to Brownton, Minnesota, where they have since resided. He was educated in the parochial school at Brownton, under the tutelage of his father, and was confirmed at the age of 14. He completed the eighth grade in the public school at Winthrop, Minnesota, where he also took up one year high school work before entering St. Paul Luther College in 1907. After completing the college course, he took up a course in the theological seminary of the same school, and graduated in 1914. He was ordained April 19th of the same year, by his father, in St. Matthew Evangelical Church at Brownton, and left shortly afterward to take charge of the Stratford congregation, where he has since been stationed.  

He was married August 27, 1914, to Miss Elizabeth Schmalz, daughter of the late Reverend Carl Schmalz of the town of Wien, who died a number of years ago. Mrs. Schmalz now resides at Wausau. The Reverend and Mrs. Diemer have four children: Roland, Ethel, Carl and Lothar.  

Politically, he is a progressive Republican. His hobby is the study of science.
