Mrs. Berneice Roubal, age 75, formerly of 925 South 25th Street, Manitowoc and currently a resident of Shady Lane Nursing Care Center, died Friday evening, November 28, 2008, at Holy Family Memorial Medical Center, Manitowoc.

The former Berneice Funk was born April 5, 1933, at Cedar Lake, in Barron County, daughter of the late Harm and Estella (Kimberk) Funk. She grew up in Mikana and graduated in 1951 from Rice Lake High School. On June 11, 1955, Berneice was married to Ernest Roubal at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Cedar Lake. The couple lived in Manitowoc and later owned a farm on County Line Road LS, which they ran for a number of years. Berneice had also worked other jobs, the longest at the Mirro Aluminum Company. The couple then moved to Thorp where they bought another farm, which they later retired from. Berneice was a member of First Lutheran Church, Am Vets Post #99 Auxiliary, and she also volunteered at Peter’s Pantry. Berneice enjoyed working in her flower garden, quilting, stamp collecting and bird watching.

Survivors include her husband, Ernest Roubal, Manitowoc; three sons and two daughters-in-law: Rick Roubal, rural Manitowoc, Bill (Nancy) Roubal, Jacksonville, NC, David (Joan) Roubal, Eau Claire; one daughter and son-in-law, Susan (John) Taylor, Manitowoc; ten grandchildren; one brother-in-law, DeWayne Everson, Manitowoc. Nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends survive.

A Memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 20, 2008, at Knollwood Mausoleum Chapel, 1500 Hwy 310, Manitowoc. Rev.
