Leola G. (Schaefer) Priebe, age 98, of Hilbert, died on December 28, 2019, at Pine Haven in Oostburg. She was born September 10, 1921, daughter of the late Edward and Alvina Schaefer. On October 13, 1940, she married Eldred Priebe and together they had two children.

Leola enjoyed gardening and she canned all of the berries she grew in her garden each year. She was excellent at sewing and even sewed the dresses for many of her family’s weddings. She and Eldred met at a dance and always had fun on the nights they spent out dancing. They also enjoyed fishing, bowling, and playing cards with the neighbors. 

Leola is survived by her children: Eldon “Butch” Priebe (Dianne Gould) and Harley Priebe; three grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and six great-great-grandchildren.

Leola was preceded in death by her husband, Eldred; her parents: Edward and Alvina Schaefer; and a daughter-in-law: Gloria Priebe.

A funeral service is set for 11:00am on Thursday, January 2, 2020, at St. Peter Lutheran Church (43 N. 3rd St.) in Hilbert. Friends may call from 9:30am until 10:45am at the church on the day of the service. 
Wow, where to start. She will be missed.
I loved her snappy, sassy attitude, her love for her kitties over the years and her kindness.
The last time we spoke she said she had told her Dr. she wanted to make it to 100. Well, gal darn it...she came close.
Rest in peace, my friend.

When I was a kid we lived on the same street as grandma & grandpa. I would go every Saturday morning and help grandma with house cleaning. We would watch Fat Albert cartoons together & eat a Hostess Snoowball treat together. I played with the cat and had a great day with grandma.
