Obituary for Edna Elbertina Luedeke

Edna Priebe Luedeke was born January 7, 1918, in the Town of Merton, WI, the daughter of Fred and Lydia Zarling Priebe. As a child she lived in various places, settling in Oshkosh where she worked as a maid for the Bell and O’Connor families. In 1941 she was united in marriage to Lawrence Luedeke at Martin Luther Church. They loved to travel and went abroad several times.

Edna was a lifetime member of Martin Luther Church where she served in the Ladies Guild, Pioneers, nursery, Lutheran Women’s Mission Society, Bible Class, and prayer chain.
Her home welcomed many friends of her children, stopping for homemade bread, potlucks, and just hanging out.

Edna was preceded in death by her husband Lawrence; sisters: Esther and Ruth; brothers: Fred, Walter and Martin; a grandson, David Luedeke.

She is survived by her sister, Margaret Marotz, a brother, Edwin Priebe, and children: Beverley Lentz (Richard), Mary Malnory, Nancy Lienhard (Roger), Arthur Luedeke (Sandra), Thomas Luedeke (Debbi), Charles Luedeke (Linda); 24 grandchildren and 53 great grandchildren.
