Huber, Eleanor Lehmann - Elmhurst  
Eleanor Lehmann Huber Born: February 26, 1932 Died: August 27, 2016 Eleanor ("Ellie") Lehmann Huber died on August 27, 2016 at the age of 84, after a 7-year struggle with a long illness. She died surrounded by her family with the care of Hospice in her apartment at Lexington Square of Elmhurst where she had been living with her husband for the last 3 1/2 years. Ellie was born in La Crosse, Wisconsin on February 26, 1932 to Otto and Ethel (Peterson) Lehmann. It was there that she met her future husband Charles ("Chuck") Huber. Although they first met in Kindergarten, they did not start going "steady" until their sophomore year in high school and didn't get married until they graduated from the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Ellie graduated with a BS degree and an RN in nursing. In 1960, after Chuck's stint in the Army and in Law School, they moved to Elmhurst where they settled in and began raising their family of four wonderful children. Ellie was a woman of a strong and abiding faith. Her faith was both a comfort throughout her life and a guiding principle. For all of her 56-plus years in Elmhurst, Ellie was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church, and a very active one. She quickly became one of the Pastor's primary go-to people whenever he needed something to be done. She served for many years as Chair of the Church's Altar Guild, was in charge of the church's semi-annual blood drives for many years, worked on the church rummage sales and was an officer in the church's Couples Club. She also served as an active member of the Immanuel committees that sponsored refugees first from Chili and later from the Hmong area of Laos to help them get settled in Elmhurst. Although always very busy in her roles within the church, Ellie was never too busy to lend a helping hand wherever it was needed. Her other volunteer activities included working with the Red Cross on its blood drives, volunteering as a teacher-helper at her kids' school and working as a volunteer nurse at the Elmhurst Well-Baby Clinic. She also volunteered to take two infant children into her home for about six months when their single-mother was too sick to care for them, she volunteered to house and feed student-teachers, and, on another occasion, she provided room and board for a young lady from Sweden who sort of ended up on the church's doorstep. But Ellie was not all work and no play. She was also a very vivacious and outgoing lady who enjoyed life. She was a fearless and avid skier and always looked forward to the family's annual vacations to Colorado for a week of skiing with her kids, and later her grandkids. She enjoyed playing Bridge and was a member of at least four Bridge clubs. Ellie enjoyed travel and over the years she visited 56 foreign countries. She was also a warm and welcoming hostess who loved to cook and entertain family and friends. Ellie and Chuck hosted many events in their Elmhurst home, and every year they gave at least two summer parties, a Couples Club Steak Fry and a huge Super Bowl party. They had a very close group of crazy friends, most of whom were members of Immanuel, and they all enjoyed many, many years of fun times together. Ellie was a warm, compassionate and nurturing woman who many looked to as both a role model and mentor. She was a wonderful wife and mother as well as a very special "Nana". She brought a smile and a sunny outlook to every single day along with a joyous sense of humor. She will continue to inspire those left behind. She is survived by her husband, Chuck; her four children, Kathleen (Wayne) Kubick, David (Carol) Huber, Christina (John) Ughetta and Anne (Scott) Martenson; six grandchildren, (Colin, Erika, Connor, Andrew, Rachel, Erik); and one great-granddaughter, (Charlotte). She was preceded in death by her parents; a brother, who died soon after birth; and her sister, Marie Iverson. The family asks that any donations be directed to Immanuel Lutheran Church of Elmhurst or the Alzheimer's Association. Memorial Visitation at the Pedersen Ryberg Mortuary, 435 N. York St., Elmhurst, on Friday, Sept. 2, 2016, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Her family will receive friends at the Immanuel Lutheran Church, 142 E. Third St., (at Michigan St.), Elmhurst, IL on Saturday, Sept. 3, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. until time of Memorial Service at 11:00 a.m.
