When her mother passed away at a young age, Hum and her sister Gert were in charge of the meals and many of the household tasks. She talked fondly of the memories of her youth with her siblings despite the difficult times. She went to Michigan during the war where she worked in an ammunitions factory.
Before leaving home she began writing letters with her future husband and love of her life, Arnold LeFebre. After she returned, they married in They were side by side their entire married life. They worked together at the Lodgepole Store, which Arnold and his brother Harold had bought in In November oftheir treasured daughter Norma was born. Hum continued to help run a successful business at the store while raising Norma. She enjoyed gardening and lawn care, as well as reading and canning fruits and vegetables.
Hum and Arnold sold the store in to nephew Dick Vliem and his wife, Mary. At this time she and Arnold began traveling extensively all across the country, while spending lots of time with their 3 grandchildren. She was the strict disciplinarian who tried to counteract the spoiling Arnold did. Hum always spoke up for what she felt was right and wrong, unconcerned about who it may offend.
In her retirement, Hum continued to enjoy her lifetime hobbies of gardening, quilting and baking. She also helped fix hair at the nursing home in town every Thursday, which she did for over 50 years, right up to the time of her passing. She was nominated in for Hettinger Volunteer of the year for this, of which she was very proud. She was a devoted, lifelong member of Holland Center Church, serving as part of the Ladies Aid and teaching Sunday and Bible school classes for many years.
Her faith in Jesus was the only thing more important to her than her family. Hum was proud of her family and remained very close to her siblings, nephews and nieces, keeping close contact with many of them to her final days.
Arnold, her husband of 60 years, passed away in Fiercely independent, Hum continued to live in their home in Lodgepole until her death. She exercised every day so she could maintain her active lifestyle. She devoted her later years to her family: helping Norma and her family on the ranch, fixing fence, running errands, baking cookies and doing whatever needed doing.
She doted on and helped babysit her beloved great-grandchildren whenever she got the opportunity, giving them whatever they wanted in exchange for a hug or a kiss. She made her famous sour cream raisin pies for weekly visits with her siblings and sisters-in-law. Hum was strong, self-reliant and capable to the very end, and she will be greatly missed.
Hum passed away December 14, from injuries sustained in a car accident. In lieu of flowers, a Memorial has been established to the Holland Center Cemetery project. Henrietta LeFebre - Obituary.
