Ileta L. (Lober) Marsh

Ileta Lucille (Myers) Lober- Marsh passed away peacefully in her sleep, Monday, April 8, 2019 at Life Care Center in Plainwell.

She was born January 22, 1926 in Hastings Hill, West Virginia, the daughter of George and Bonnie (Horner) Myers. Ileta grew up in Hastings Hill, Pine Grove and New Martinsville, West Virginia with her four sisters, Anita, Ethel, Leanore and Leah.

She married Floyd W. Lober who passed away in 1969. She resided in Martin, at the Lober’s dairy farm, Otsego, MI, then Pine Lake and then back to Otsego. On June 26, 1971 she married Leroy Marsh who passed away in 2002.

Ileta had worked at Otsego High School and at a nursing home in Plainwell. She was very active with the Otsego VFW Ladies Auxiliary for over 50 years and held all of the officer posts. She enjoyed being involved with TOPS for over 30 years and was a 4-H leader.

Ileta was a devoted loving mother and was happiest when surrounded by family and friends. She had a very long, happy and productive life and lived by her favorite catch phrase “it is what it is.”

Surviving are her children, Shirley (Charles) Lober-Rumpf, Floyd “Randy” (Mary) Lober and Leslie Lober; grandchildren, Scott and Michelle Fris and Wilhelm, Georg (Kelley) and Sigmund Rumpf and great-grandchildren, Ruth Ann Fris and Merinna and Marcus Keller.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husbands and daughter, Sandra Fris.

A family service will take place.

Burial will follow at Hillside Cemetery in Plainwell.

Contributions in memory of Ileta may be made to Wings of Hope Hospice of Allegan.
