Loueen Sylvia Huberg, daughter of Merrill and Ruth Smith Mohr, was born October 11, 1937 in Spencer, Iowa. Loueen grew up on the farm south of Spencer and attended the country school. She graduated from Greenville Rossie. After graduation, Loueen married Charles Huberg on June 5, 1955 at the First English Lutheran Church in Spencer, IA. A year later, twin boys, Gary and Greg were born. Ten years later, daughter Lori joined the family and nine years after, Amy was born. Loueen’s biggest joy was her family, their love for each other and their times together. Besides being a busy mother, Loueen taught bible school, served on church council, was an officer in circle and a long time member and officer of the Altar Guild of the Bethlehem Lutheran Church of Royal. Serving the Altar Guild was a personal joy and loving duty of hers. She was a board member of the Royal Library, along with being an avid reader. Loueen was also a member of the Royal Legion Auxiliary and member/president of the Federated Club. She helped Lori teach at the Town and Country Preschool and then took it over. Loueen also helped her son Gary at The Prime Rib in Royal with hosting and salad making duties. As her children and grandchildren became involved in 4-H her main job was not the animals, instead she was the person who made sure there was plenty of food, clean shirts, and the job of keeping everyone ready to show. In between all of this she had a large garden and many flowers.
Loueen passed away at the Spencer Hospital on December 25, 2020 at the age of 83. She is preceded in death by her father Merrill, mother, Ruth, husband, Charles, brother, Richard, daughter-in-law Cheryl, grandson Justin, and grandson, Heath.
