THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Amelia A. Lehn
Amelia A. (Saurbeir) Lehn, 58, of Gillett, passed away Saturday, Jan. 20, 2018 at home surrounded by family.
Born May 7, 1959 in Chicago, Ill., to the late Hilbert R., Sr. and Virginia R. (Anderson) Saurbeir, she moved to Gillett at a young age and graduated from Gillett High School in 1977. She married George Lehn and together they raised one child, Aaron. They owned and operated the Berry Lake Club for over 35 years.
She enjoyed cooking and gardening, which she learned and improved from her mother and husband. She was an avid Brewer and Vikings fan through the 80's before switching to the Packers, once Brett Favre was in the line-up.
She also enjoyed fishing and animals, was an avid reader of Stephanie Plum and other books from the Berry Lake Library and played dice with her "old farts" and dart ball in the Oconto River Valley area.
She loved time with her husband and friends at both Wisconsin Dells and Lost/Found Lake and making maple syrup at the Sugar Shack. She loved her friends, Elkos, Egans and anyone from Berry Lake, those who came for darts, dice and activities of the Underhill Sportsmans' Club, including contests for both fishing and hunting and many others.
She is survived by a son, Aaron; a brother, Hilbert Saurbeir of Shawano; four sisters, Jaqueline (David) Morrow, Virginia Jr of Gillett, Geralding Hejduk of Green Bay and Ann Smet of San Antonio, Tx. and many nieces; nephews and friends.
Including her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, George on Jan. 4, 2013 and a brother, who saved both her and a sibling's life at the cost of his own life, Frederick Hejduk.
A Memorial Gathering will be held at Legacy Funeral Chapel in Gillett on Friday, Jan. 26 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. A Celebration of Life will continue for family and friends at the BLC from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
