Mr. Hans Liemen

May 15, 1921 — January 1, 2013

Hans E. Liemen, 91, of Prairie Village,
having enjoyed a life filled with travel and adventure, Hans E. Liemen began his final journey on January 1, 2013. Hans was born on May 15, 1921 in Gotha, Germany and sailed across the Atlantic Ocean with his parents in 1925. The family settled in Kansas City, Missouri, where Hans graduated from Paseo High School. He obtained a Bachelor's Degree in Business from UMKC after serving as a glider pilot during WWII. Earning the rank of Major, Hans remained in the Air Force Reserves for the next 30 years.
Marrying his college sweetheart, Mildred, in 1948, he opened a Hallmark card and camera shop in the Mission Mart building. The store transitioned into a travel agency, thus beginning a 52 year career at the helm of The Travel House, Inc. After founding the Ambassadors USA travel club, the Liemens spent the next five decades escorting hundreds of tour groups all over the world. Their two daughters were privileged to experience many trips with them.
Hans gradually retired from the travel agency in 2005 and spent many happy years enjoying golf, swimming, and monthly get togethers with his college bridge group.
He treasured time spent with his two grandsons. Hans will be remembered for his leadership, energy, unique sense of humor, and participation in Sertoma, Rotary, and Mission Chamber of Commerce. For nearly 60 years, Trinity Lutheran Church in Mission Kansas has been his spiritual home.
Hans is survived by his beloved wife Mildred, daughters, Nancy (Stephen) Taylor and Janet (Robert) Toplikar, grandsons, Robert and Andrew Toplikar, brother-in-law, David (Lillian) Mathis, sister-in-law, Dorothy Puder, plus, nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends on Saturday, January, 5th, 10-11 AM, with a funeral service to follow at 11:00 AM, at Trinity Lutheran Church, 5601 West 62nd Street, Mission, KS 66202. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Hans' memory to Trinity Lutheran Church or to a favorite charity.
