Jeanne Margaret (Rose) Huber, 73, of Monterey, passed away surrounded by her family on Oct. 11, 2019, following a short illness.
She was born April 2, 1946 in Manchester, England, but moved to the United States with her parents at six months of age;
growing up in Hessville and graduating from Morton High School in Hammond.
On July 6, 1968, she married Raymond L. Huber in Hammond at All Saints Catholic Church. In the spring of 1972, they moved to Monterey and raised three children. She enjoyed being a homemaker for many years. She loved gardening, canning, sewing, ceramics, embroidery and watching her children play school sports and participate in 4-H.
She went into the retail business in 1985 as the co-owner of Huber’s Carpet Outlet in Plymouth; followed by a second location in Monticello in 2008 and a third store in Rockville in 2012. Although she retired a few years ago, she was once very active in the Monticello Chamber of Commerce and was named “Volunteer of the Year.”
She enjoyed spending time at her summer home on Lake Shafer in Monticello; swinging on the glider and just staring at the lake while sipping hot tea in the mornings and margaritas in the afternoons. She often said she would never get tired of that view.
She wintered in Pensacola, Fla. and enjoyed traveling with her husband all over the world.
She is survived by her loving husband of 51 years, Raymond L. Huber; her three children: Lisa (Steve) Guyse of Lakeville; Carrie (Scott) Strycker of Independence, Kan.; and Raymond W Huber of Monterey; her three siblings: brother Michael Rose of Frankfort; sister Linda (Robert) Chorba of Knox; and Thomas (Diane) Rose of Kouts; four grandchildren: Anthony Guyse of Bremen; Scott Strycker of Witchita, Kan.; MacKenzie Strycker of Joplin, Mo.; and John Strycker of Independence, Kan.; and two great-granddaughters: Peyton Guyse and Riley Guyse of Plymouth; along many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Margaret (Evans) and Floyd Rose and a grandson, Alex Guyse.
