Does this mean T. K. "from Lampela maiden name Siivola"? or something else?

ent. = entinen = former [name], maybe from earlier marriage or a name change (sometimes abbreviated only e.)
o.s. = omaa sukua ~ maiden name

:) Jaska

P.S. The most recent official way is to use only e for any earlier name. Then the last one is the first i.e. the name at birth.
