Frieda E. Bobbe
Frieda E. Bobbe, 98, Amherst, died Tuesday, Dec. 19, 2017, at Iola Living Assistance.
She was born Oct. 11, 1919, in Buena Vista, a daughter of the late Benjamin and Selma (Schmidt) Boelter.
She married Myron E. Bobbe June 23, 1943, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Amherst. Together they farmed in the Town of Amherst, where they raised their three children. Myron preceded her in death June 27, 2002.
Most of Frieda’s early years were dedicated to raising her children, tending to her garden and helping out on the family farm. She worked for many years at the dress shop in Amherst, and also worked for 25 years for Krogwold Potato Plant.
She will be remembered as a loving wife, caring mother, and the best grandma. Her children will cherish their memories of a mother who taught them to love God, their church and their families.
She enjoyed word search books, playing cards, going to the casino, watching the Packers and the Brewers, and most of all, spending time with her family.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Iola Living Assistance and Hospice. She was loved and cared for by the best.
Survivors include her children, LaVon (Ron) Gruna, Stevens Point, William Bobbe, Amherst, and Wayne (Jeanie) Bobbe, Wisconsin Rapids; one sister, Alta Sannes, Iola; three grandchildren, Scott (Kathy) Gruna, Polonia, Jodi (Tom) Phillippi, Waukesha, and Amanda (fiancé-Kevin) Bobbe, Stevens Point; and four great-grandchildren, Morgan and Tyler Gruna, and Jenelle and Lee Phillippi.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, two brothers and one sister.
