Lula Belle Sobba
Fidler-Orme Bachman Mortuary

Lula Belle (Reese) Sobba, passed away Sunday, June 5, 2011, at the Meade District Hospital, Meade, Kansas.


She was born December 3, 1923, in rural Ford County, Fowler, Kansas, daughter of William and Belle (Johnson) Reese.  She attended school and gradated from Fowler High School in 1943.  She married Robert L. Sobba on July 12, 1942, and after the war they started farming north of Fowler, Kansas.  They raised seven children and were married over 68 years.


She was a great mother, homemaker, and cook.  She loved baking and once had a wedding cake business baking for friends and neighbors.  She loved gardening, taking care of her flowers, painting, scrapbooking, and quilting.  She was involved with her kids in many activities, including 4-H, cub scouts, and sports.  She was very proud of being a farmer’s wife and together with her husband and family built a successful farming operation.  In the 1960’s the family started raising turkeys and she always thought the experience taught the children more about responsibility and work ethic than anything else.


She is preceded in death by her son, Jim.  Survivors include:  husband, Robert Sobba of the home; sons, Robert Sobba and wife Cheryl of Caldwell, Idaho, Mike Sobba and wife Mary Jo of Rose Hill, Kansas; daughters, Aleta Sobba of Wichita, Kansas, Kelly Oberlechner of Red Cloud, Nebraska, Penny Sobba of Liberal, Kansas, and Tammy Dorman and husband Walter of Aztec, New Mexico; ten grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.


Rosary will be held at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday, June 7, 2011, at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, Fowler.  Holy Mass will be celebrated at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday, June 8, 2011, at the church.  Friends may call from 12:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. Tuesday at Fidler-Orme-Bachman Mortuary, Meade, Kansas.  Interment will follow in the Fowler Cemetery, Fowler.


The family would welcome memorials to the Meade District Hospital in care of the funeral home.
