Annetta Kubel was born on Saturday, May 10, 1919 to Peter V. and Josephine (Poboda) Becvar in Tyndall, South Dakota. On June 22, 1938, she was united in marriage to Pete Kubel at Vodnany Catholic Church in rural Tyndall. During WWII, they moved to California where Pete worked in the ship yards welding while Annetta worked in a tuna canning plant. After the war, she attended and graduated from Cosmetology School and was employed as a hairdresser in San Pedro, California. Later the family moved back to South Dakota where they farmed in the Tyndall area until they retired in 1990. Following Pete’s death in 1991, Annetta made her home in Tyndall until 2012, when at the age of 92 she decided it was time to reside at the Good Samaritan Home.
Annetta loved to crochet and created many beautiful pieces throughout the years. She also loved watching her grandson Jason play the outfield with the Minnesota Twins. She loved all of her grand, great, and great-great-grandchildren dearly. We were blessed to have her in our lives.
Annetta passed away on Thursday, September 24, 2015 at the Good Samaritan Society of Tyndall having attained the age of 96 years, 4 months, and 14 days.
