Joann I. Freiberg
Joann I. Freiberg, 84, of Van Dyne, entered her heavenly
home on Saturday, February 2, 2019.
Joann “Jo” Irene
(Kemnitz) Freiberg was born on August 11th, 1934 to
Chester and Irene Kemnitz of Eldorado, WI. She was the second of eleven
children. She married William “Bill” Freiberg on September 17, 1960.
Over 58 years of marriage, Bill and Joann were blessed with two sons, seven
grandchildren, and two great grandchildren. She was employed by Action
Advertiser for many years until her retirement in 1996. In her free time she
enjoyed playing cards with her siblings, spending time with her grandchildren,
and caring for her home. She volunteered her time in the hot lunch programs at
St. Peter’s Lutheran School and Winnebago Lutheran Academy. Joann was always a
woman full of life and joy. Even in her eighties, she was able to physically
and mentally accomplish anything she set out to.
Throughout her long and wonderful life, God always
remained in the center. Bill and Joann
made sure their family attended church regularly so their
faith would be nurtured. Because of this devotion and faithfulness, their
children, grandchildren, and greatgrandchildren share a unified and active
faith. “Train a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will
not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
