Obituary for Barbara Mae Felberg

Barbara Mae Felberg, 91, born on May 21, 1927 in Brookings, South Dakota, daughter to Harvey and Beulah (Dyball) Ross, passed away June 11, 2018 in Lansing, Michigan.
Barbara received her education in a rural school in Hamlin County, SD, the Estelline High School and graduated from Custer High School in 1945. Following graduation she was employed at various businesses in Brookings including the Brookings Hospital, Nelson’s Pharmacy, Felberg Cafe and also provided in home daycare for many families. She was united in marriage to Ralph O. Felberg on January 28, 1948, in Dell Rapids, SD. They began their family in Brookings SD in 1956.
In 1984, following Ralph’s retirement from South Dakota State University they moved to Omaha, NE, where she continued her in home daycare. After Ralph’s passing on April 5, 1997, Barbara moved back to Brookings in 1999. Then at the age of 80 moved to Grand Ledge, Michigan in 2007 to be closer to family.
Barbara was a member of the First Lutheran Church in Brookings, the Ladies Circle, The Doe’s of the Elks club and a 50 year member of the VFW Auxiliary. She attended the Immanuel Lutheran Church in Grand Ledge and helped organize the Low Vision support group meetings at her residence for these past several years. She enjoyed bowling, crafts, sewing, cooking, playing cards and especially spending time with family and friends. Everybody loved Barb for her spirit and all will miss her feistiness.
Barbara is survived by her son David Felberg of Omaha, NE, daughter Kimberly Felberg of Grand Ledge, MI; five grandchildren: Lindsay, Colin, Parker, Nolan and Ian, and sister-in-law Beverly Ross of Brookings, SD and many beloved nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, two brothers, Ronald and William Ross and sister in law Mary Ross.
