Leann was born on March 5, 1930 in St. Helena, Nebraska to Joseph and Dorothy Burbach, and she passed away on December 10, 2018. Leann's mother died when she was four years old so she lived with her Grandmother Ann Wieseler in St. Helena throughout childhood.
Leann married Hubert Uhing on May 7, 1951 at St. Helena Catholic Church and celebrated 67 years of married life. They made their home on a farm three miles west of Hartington until retirement. Hubert and Leann were blessed with seven children: Robert, Dorothy, Ronald, Lawrence, Harold, Richard and Russell.
Throughout married life Leann was an active member of Holy Trinity Catholic Church and Catholic Daughters of America. She faithfully attended church on Sunday, worshipped at a Monday holy hour for decades and supported many parish activities with volunteer work. Leann was an accomplished seamstress who made several quilts for each of her children and sewed a treasured quilt for each grandchild. She appreciated her good life as a skilled farm wife and loving mother. Leann always cherished spending time with family members.
Leann enjoyed the conversation that accompanied playing card games of all kinds. She played cards with a group of friends, which started in elementary school and continued for over sixty years. Holidays and social occasions with family usually included a competitive game. Leann enjoyed growing extensive gardens and cooking abundant meals for a large family. She often shared favorite recipes in published cookbooks with the area church ladies and neighbors. Nobody left her house feeling hungry or unloved.
Family survivors include her husband Hubert and children: Robert and Marlene (Domier) Uhing of Yankton, SD; Daryl and Dorothy (Uhing) Guenther of Crofton, NE; Ronald Uhing of Cleveland OH; Lawrence and Betsy (Ross) Uhing of Grand Island, NE; Richard and Mary Kay (Becker) Uhing of Norfolk, NE; Russell and Kim (Buhl) Uhing of Lincoln, NE; her brothers Frederick Burbach of Orlando FL, Thomas Burbach of Storm Lake, Iowa and cousin Richard Burbach of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Leann is also survived by 16 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren.
