ANDREA R. HUBER, age 46,
Of New Bremen, died suddenly and unexpectedly on Wednesday evening, January 5, 2022 in the emergency room of the Joint Twp. Dist. Memorial Hospital in St. Marys. She was born on October 25, 1975 in Lima, the only child of Thomas and Susan (Gossette) Rengers who survive in New Bremen. On November 25, 2000 she married Jerry J. Huber, and he survives in New Bremen along with her children Griffin Huber and Ava Huber.
Andrea was a 1994 graduate of New Bremen High School, and went on to graduate with her Associates degree in Early Childhood Education from Owens Community College in Toledo. Anyone who knew Andrea knew that she had a larger than life personality, which led her to never know a stranger. She was the kind of person who was always positive and uplifting, seeing the best in each person she met. She used her big smile and lovingly sassy personality to support, cheer on, and push everyone to always be their best, and treated everyone as an equal. She also always gave her best each day at everything she did; be it her job as a recruiter for Crown Equipment Corp. in New Bremen, volunteering for many events and activities as a member of St. Paul United Church of Christ in New Bremen, the Bremenfest Queen / Little Miss pageants, being a member of the TLC-OCCL, or being the emcee for the 301 club. What Andrea cherished most were her children, and she was thankful for her many friends. She loved to simply spend time with them at home around the pool, singing every song on the radio, and going shopping; and she adored her many trips taken with her family to Hilton Head.
Funeral Services will be held on Wednesday, January 12, 2022 at 10:30 A.M. at the St. Paul United Church of Christ in New Bremen with Rev. Becky Erb Strang officiating. The services will also be live-streamed on the church’s Facebook page (Link can be found below). Private family inurnment will take place in the German Protestant Cemetery of New Bremen at a later date. Calling Hours will be held on Tuesday, January 11, 2022 from 2:00 until 7:00 P.M. at the Gilberg-Hartwig Funeral Home in New Bremen, and again on Wednesday one hour prior to the services at the church. It is requested that masks or face coverings be worn at all services.

I remember this beautiful young lady as a student of my mom’s who left quite an impression on me. Over the years whenever I saw Andrea she had a smile on her face and a hearty laugh that brightened my day. I am pretty sure my mom was one of the first to greet her as she came through those pearly gates with a big hug and a welcoming smile. She will truly be missed. Rest well sweet soul……

Every conversation with Andrea ended in a laugh. I’ll never forget the story she told while traveling, she was walking in an airport terminal with the backside of her skirt tucked up in her hose until a stranger told her about it. She will be missed. Prayers of peace and comfort to the family.

She was such a beautiful person that could light up a room as soon as she entered. Always could make a person feel good. Loved talking to her. She was truly a very special lady, who will live on through her children and husband. She is a true tribute to her parents that managed to raise such a great lady. Deepest sympathy to her husband, children, and parents. I truly did love her.

I remember Andrea in my second grade class. She was the tallest girl and very bright. She liked to be in plays that we did in class. She was many times the first one to volunteer to help me with things to be done. She had a sparkling personality that always made each day one to look forward to while she was in my class. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this time. God will give you peace as you have wonderful memories of times together. Look forward to the hope of Christ’s return. I Thessalonians 4:13-18
