Bernice E. Hubert

Jan 24, 1925 - Apr 29, 2021


On Thursday, April 29th, Bernice E. Hubert enjoyed a lovely day with family and friends, then slipped the bonds of this earth to rest in the arms of her Heavenly Father. She was always unpredictable. Bernice lived all 96 years of her life in Sheboygan, and some of them were good. Her parents were John and Emma (Hemb) Goedeke, who instilled a love of fun and parties in their daughter. Bernice attended Jefferson Elementary School and North High School. She worked for her aunt at the Artistic Beauty Salon, and at the Vollrath Company during WWII, assisting in the war effort. In 1951 she was united in marriage to Victor Hubert. Bernice was a devoted mother and homemaker who loved crafting, baking, canning, cooking, helping others, and entertaining when Vic would let her. She made beautiful sets of the Three Wise Men, some of which still adorn Sheboygan homes at Christmas time. She also worked part-time at Imogene’s Cleaners to help pay for college, God bless her. Bernie loved to bowl with her team at North Bowl, and to golf in the ladies’ league at Town & Country. After Vic died in 1993, Bernie proceeded to have some fun, spending time with her grandchildren, traveling the world with friends, and traveling the country to golf with her golfing buddies. In recent years Bernice’s wings were clipped by a stroke, yet she remained a joy to be with, though any mention of the unplugged stove or the sale of her car would change that. The family wishes to especially thank her kind caregiver, MaryJo, and her long-suffering cleaning lady, Dawn, who didn’t really hide all those things.
Survivors include her three wonderful children, all of Sheboygan: Sandra (Joseph) Zagozen, Mark (Pam) Hubert, and Vicki (Angus) Menuge, her talented grandchildren Michelle (Jason) Bernloehr of Plymouth, MN, MaryJo Zagozen of Sheboygan, Aidan (Katelyn) Menuge of Boise, ID, Corin (Adam) Menuge of London, England, and great-grandson Ben Bernloehr. Bernice is also survived by many nieces and nephews, but she outlasted most of her friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, her sister Mabel Herte, and her brother John Goedeke Jr.
Family and friends may gather to reminisce, share smiles, and praise God in honor of Bernice’s life, at her home church, Luther Memorial Church, 1127 Eisner Avenue in Sheboygan, on Wednesday, May 5th, with visitation from 9 am until the time of service at 11 am. Pastor Adam Barkley will officiate. Entombment will follow at Garden Terrace Mausoleum in Lutheran Cemetery. Memorials for Bernice will go to Luther Memorial Church.

My fondest memories of Bernice was washing her windows once a year and singing for her and others at Terrace estates , she always had a smile and was such a sweet lady. She will be missed by myself and many. So sincere condolences, thoughts and prayers to her family and friends.

Our dear Aunt Bernie was one of the apples of his eye. She didn’t fall far from the tree. What is the most socially active, kind hearted and fun loving people, As her niece she always created a warm and welcoming space for us Minnesotan visitors. Whether it was enjoying her fabulous red velvet cake, apple squares, and other tasty treats, or playing hide and seek under the living room stairs, as kids we enjoyed visiting her home, climbing her trees and exploring her neighborhood. But I think some of my most favorite memories were of her, her sister Mabel and my father enjoying a good laugh at the family brat fries or her visits to Minnesota. I will miss her almost weekly calls. I will miss her shared memories and the mini-road trips when I visited to the homestead, tours of Kohler and the museums here. Rest in good peace, Bernie. And give a hug for me to your sis and brother.
