Luella Daubert was born on March 15, 1937 in Nekoosa, the daughter of John and Eleanor (Peterson) Zuleger. She was raised in Medford. Luella attended Birchwood School and Pleasant Heights School both in the Medford Area School District. She graduated from Medford Area Senior High in 1955. She married George Daubert on September 21, 1957 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Medford. She worked for Farmers Home Administration (US government agency) from 1968 until the time of her retirement in 1992. During her time working for FHA, George and Luella also owned the Chaparral Supper Club for a few years. After retirement from the FHA, Luella and George then owned the Kountry Korner Bar from 1992 until the time they sold it in 2000. Finally retiring!
Over the years, Luella enjoyed many things. She especially liked gardening, gambling at the casino and working on the Peterson Reunion planning and book. Luella, with her husband George took pride in their old cars and going to car shows and on old car rides. Luella enjoyed going to baseball, softball, basketball, and volleyball games that her great grandkids played. She loved watching them and also became “Grandma” to many others. She traveled near and far to be at as many games as she could. She will be missed in the stands, but now has the best seat in the house with George for each and every game.
Luella is survived by a daughter, Tami (Jeff) Kallenbach; a grandson Judd (Brenda) Hraby; and 3 great-grandchildren Tanner, Rylee, and Laney Hraby all of Medford.
