3004. “Obituary,” Ruth Viola (Lenz) Kerbel, August 30, 2012.
I, Ruth Viola (Lenz) Kerbel, was born on October, 29th, 1924, in Park City, Montana to George and Ida Lenz. My family moved to Sheridan, Wyoming, in 1929 when I was five years old. My journey in The Missouri Synod Lutheran Church began with my baptism on November, 27th, 1924. It continued with my confirmation on April, 10th, 1938. On August 23rd, 1942, I married the love of my life, Bill Kerbel. Bill and I moved to a dairy farm and cattle ranch in Banner. In addition to caring for our dairy, we raised three children and spent many years fostering 4H members to succeed with their projects. I continued to be very active in serving my church, including teaching Sunday school. My service to my church lead me to join LWML (Lutheran Women’s Missionary League) in which I became an active member and served several years as Wyoming District President. After attending Immanuel Lutheran Church in Sheridan for over 45 years, Bill and I decided to become members of the mission congregation, Prince of Peace, in Buffalo in order to help the congregation grow.

After my husband Bill’s passing in 1989, I moved to Sheridan and thought it to be quite natural to rejoin my brothers and sisters in Christ at Immanuel Lutheran Church. I continued to serve the Lord by making numerous banners and serving on our Altar Guild, as well as continuing my work with LWML. I also loved my time working on the hospital auxiliary board at the hospital that embraced me until I took my heavenly flight. I am preceded in death by my husband Bill Kerbel, my parents George and Ida Lenz, and brothers Ralph and Howard Lenz. I am survived by my sister Helen Sembra, my three loving children and their families, Bill and Kathy Kerbel, Jim and Sue Kerbel, Phyllis and Jody Fournier. Children have always lit up my life and I was blessed with 8 grandchildren, and 14 great grandchildren. I also have been blessed by countless local adopted grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, I request that memorials be made to Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) Mission Projects, in care of Immanuel Lutheran Church. I would like to thank everyone who has loved me and enriched my life.

Ruth V. Kerbel, 87, of Sheridan, WY died Wednesday, August 29, 2012, in Memorial Hospital of Sheridan County.

Viewing will be 6:00pm until 8:00pm on Monday (Sept. 3rd) from Champion Ferries Funeral Home with funeral service at 10:00am on Tuesday from Immanuel Lutheran Church with Pastor Paul Cain officiating. Interment will be in Sheridan Municipal Cemetery. Arrangements are with Champion Ferries Funeral Home.

I followed the airplane half way down and than our plane banked away and I lost sight of the airplane. Later, I saw an oil slick where the airplane hit the water.

As the guests assembled Miss Ruth Dreamer, organist, played a prelude of organ music including “Serenade.” Schubert; “To A Wild Rose,” McDowell, and Chopin’s “Nocturne in E flat.” Miss Dreamer also accompanied Leonard Spahn who sang, “O Promise Me,” DeKoven, and “Because,” D’Hardelot. The Lohengrin music was used as a processional, and the Mendelssohn wedding march as a recessional.

Miss Lydia Snyder was her sister’s maid of honor, and appeared in a frock of aqua taffeta which was fashioned with the fitted bodice, sweetheart neckline, and bracelet length sleeves. The skirt was bouffant. She carried an arm bouquet of pink roses.

The bridesmaids, Miss Helen Carpenter, was frocked in old rose taffeta. Designed on similar lines to that of the maid of honor, the gown was trimmed with a border of latticed taffeta around the heart-shaped neck, and the same trim completed the three-quarter length sleeves. Miss Carpenter carried deep pink roses.

Wearing a frock of yellow taffeta, with fitted bodice and bouffant skirt, was the flower girl, Nadyne Joyce Snyder, who carried a nosegay of yellow roses.

A. G. Snyder, brother of the bride, served Cpl. Raymer as best man, and the ushers were W. J. Snyder and John Debus.

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a gown of white lace over satin,. The molded bodice had a heart-shaped neckline and long sleeves that narrowed to the wrists from shoulder fullness. The soft folds of the skirt ended in a long train. Satin covered buttons fastened the back bodice from the neckline to the waist. The fingertip veil of bridal illusion was held to the head with a half-hat of illusion, and the bridal bouquet was of white roses and gardenias.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at Hotel Cornhusker. Mrs. F. P. McDonough of Arlington, Va., was in charge of the reception, and assisting in the serving were Mrs. Lola Coddington, Miss Amy Ladd Colburn, and Miss Shirley Hinds. Mrs. Ruth Schafer was in charge of the guest book.
