Deanna Lynn “Dee” Huber, 46 of Westphalia, began her heavenly journey Saturday, August 14, 2021 after a courageous four year battle with cancer.
She was born September 19, 1974, at Jefferson City, a daughter of Lawrence “Larry” and Linda (Kampeter) Reichel.
Dee was united in marriage on October 14, 2000 at St. Aloysius Catholic Church in Argyle to Kevin Ray Huber.
She was a 1993 graduate of Fatima High School in Westphalia. After graduating, she worked at Gerbes in the floral department. It was where she met her future husband. In May 2001, she began her career at Quaker Windows and Doors where she has been a loyal employee for the last twenty years, working even in her final days.
Dee was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Westphalia. It was her strong faith that carried her through her wearying fight with determination, grace, and dignity.
Dee’s kind and generous nature was shared through her many hobbies and talents. She was not only known for her stunning floral arrangements, but she was also an amazing artist and graphic designer. Dee was often commissioned for her unique murals, Christmas yard cards, wedding backdrops, signs, and an array of craft items. She dabbled in carpentry and enjoyed repurposing anything she could add her creative touch to. Embroidery, piano, lottery tickets, baking, and collecting Precious Moments figurines were some of her other hobbies.
Dee was an avid sports fan and was often found at the ballpark or gym attending her nieces and nephews sporting events. She had fond memories of her Tuesday night bowling with the ladies. She enjoyed the outdoors and took pleasure in the peacefulness of gardening, fishing, and kayaking. She cherished Sunday afternoons with family and the moments spent sitting on her brother-in-law’s porch taking in his shared “wisdom.” Dee also had a playful side. Her coworkers and godsons were often the recipients of her creative pranks. Dee’s pride and joy were her nieces and nephews. Her love for them was nothing less than that of a mother’s. We celebrate her life and will treasure the many memories she has created for her family and many dear friends.
Dee will be deeply missed by all who knew her especially her loving and devoted husband of almost 21 years, Kevin Huber, Westphalia; her mother, Linda Reichel of Argyle; brothers, Scott Reichel (Jackie) and Travis Reichel (Chrissy), both of Argyle; sister, Trisha Weber (Josh) of Argyle; her mother-in-law, Lori Huber of Westphalia; brothers-in-law, Kurtis Huber (Marcie), Keith Huber and Kristopher Huber (Tammy), all of Westphalia; 14 nieces and nephews, Olivia, Alex and Alyssa Reichel; Nathan, Brandon and Samuel Reichel; Zachary and Anabel Weber; Kaylie (Scotty Randolph), Chase, Garret (Ashleigh), and Trenton Huber; Olivia Vieth and Kolby Huber; Jordan Saxe, Katelyn and Taylor Scheulen; and godson, Ryan Bock.
Those preceding her in death and welcoming her home are her father, Larry Reichel (May 22, 2019); father-in-law Kenneth Huber (March 20, 2018); and special uncle, Donald “Duck” Kampeter (September 5, 2004).
