Lueth, Albert M. (9 AUG 1935 - 17 DEC 2015)

Albert M. Lueth, Age 80, of Colby, passed away Thursday, December 17, 2015 at the Colby Retirement Community in Colby.

His Memorial Service will be held at 12 Noon on Monday, December 21, 2015 at St. Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church in Dorchester. Pastor Gary Lodholz will officiate.

Family and friends are invited to gather on Monday at the church from 11AM until the time of service. Committal services will be held privately at a later date.

Albert was born on August 9, 1935 in Medford, the son of Fielder and Rose (Kristek) Lueth. He grew up on his family dairy farm in the rural Curtiss area, attending grade school in Curtiss. He was married to the former Ruby Mae Rucks and to this union five children were born. They later divorced. Albert worked at Packaging (aka PCA) from 1956 until 1971. In 1971, Albert carried on the family tradition of farming on the family homestead until 1992 when he sold the farm and lived in Merrill for a short time before moving to Dorchester. Albert was very proud of his grandson who owns Lueth Plumbing.

His hobbies included spending time with his family, crossbow and rifle deer hunting, small game hunting and bowling. Albert was a member of St. Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church in Dorchester and the Curtiss Lions Club.

Survivors include his five children: Douglas (Debbie) Lueth of Tomahawk, Darrell (Debby) Lueth of Medford, Gregory Lueth of Westboro, Gloria Nixdorf of Dorchester and LoriAnn (Teddy) Damron of Columbus, OH; his brothers: Virgil (Beverly) Lueth of Spring Valley and Arnold (Lynn) Lueth of Sparta; his sisters: Rosella (Gene) Jensen of Neillsville and Deanna (Michael) Fanning of Woodruff. Albert is further survived by his 12 grandchildren: Adam Nixdorf, Andrea Graff, Shanna Hackel, Brittany Lueth, Travis Lueth, Shawna Monien, Nicholas Lueth, Aaron Lueth, Jesse Lueth, Marissa Lueth, Scott Waldvogel, Emily Waldvogel and Eric Waldvogel and 11 great grandchildren: Hannah and Blake Nixdorf, Jebediah Nixdorf, Jeremiah and Lydiah Collopy, Hunter and Sage Lueth, Bradyn and Ellie Monien and Fielder Lueth; a longtime friend Hank Carr; his foreign exchange “daughter” Kari from Norway, along with many other relatives and friends.

Albert was preceded in death by his parents, a brother Elmer Lueth and a sister Greta Nelson.
