Lucille Huber, 90, of Weston, passed away unexpectedly on March 14, 2021 as a result of a fall at home. She was surrounded by her family at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.
Lucille was born on November 1, 1930, in Brillion, Wisconsin, to Peter and Mary Binsfeld. She grew up in the rural Green Bay area and graduated from Nicolet High School in De Pere. After meeting at a dance, she married Maynard Huber, her loving husband of 60 years, on June 29, 1957.
Lucille’s first job out of high school was working for the Brown County Register of Deeds office in Green Bay. She worked her way up and was eventually appointed Deputy Register of Deeds for Brown County. After the family moved to Wausau in 1975, she found her way back to the business of vital records. She worked part-time at the Marathon County Register of Deeds office for more than 20 years.
Lucille lived a life built on faith, family and fun. She was a parishioner at Saint Therese Catholic Church in Rothschild for more than 45 years, where she served as a Eucharistic Minister. Her strong faith guided everything she did. Family was the most important priority for Lucille, and she would do anything for her husband, children and grandchildren. She was a beloved babysitter for her grandchildren, and she loved nothing more than spending time with her extended family. She was also a devoted caregiver for Maynard later in his life, and when he needed to move to Rennes Health and Rehab Center she was by his side every day.
Blessed with a wonderful sense of humor, Lucille was always up for games, cards or jokes – although she could seldom finish telling a joke without laughing. If there was a family video or photo competition, she was always right in the thick of it. She loved her family vacations in Minocqua, Clam Lake and Florida and enjoyed many an hour on a pontoon and around a campfire. A healthy and active 90-year-old, you would still regularly see her walking the neighborhood.
Lucille is survived by five children – Ronald (Leeanne) Huber, Mary Huber, Deb (John) Klug, Dennis (Deb Higgins) Huber and Steve (Erin) Huber, nine grandchildren – Dr. Emily (John) Favret, Ben Klug, Jake Klug, Sam Klug, Zack Higgins, Ellie Huber, Will Huber, Matt Huber and Charlie Huber, one great grandchild – Sophie Favret, one sister-in-law – Inge Huber and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by Maynard, her parents, two brothers and one sister.
Services will be held Monday, March 22, at Saint Therese Catholic Church, 113 W. Kort Street, Rothschild, WI. The Funeral Mass will be held at 11 a.m., with Father Joseph Albert presiding. Visitation will take place at the church from 9 a.m. until the time of the service. Burial will be at Restlawn Memorial Park in Wausau. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Saint Therese Parish.
Lucille never said Goodbye. She always said, “Bye for now!” So, “Bye for now Lucille,” we will miss you!
