LaReine Vice, 87, of Shubert, NE, passed away January 7, 2020 at Falls City, NE. She was born August 14, 1932 at Omaha, NE to Bud and Virginia (Wilson) Gilmore, they later divorced and Lyle Page was her step-father.
LaReine worked at Clarkson Hospital in Omaha and met Leland and were married January 16, 1959 at Omaha. They had three children and moved to Verdon, NE in 1969.
LaReine loved to play board games and cards with her children and later with her grandchildren. Not sure if she let them win or they just whooped up on her.
She also loved to go camping, only LaReine was never around to help with the cooking because she loved to fish as much as the guys did. Everyone knew this and never complained about it. Leland did more than anyone.
LaReine liked winter, only for one reason, as that was the only time she really worked on puzzles, until she got older when she couldn’t sit there for hours at a time. Sewing was another hobby during the winter. Embroidering dish towels was her favorite.
The coupled opened their craft shop in 1983 by Indian Cave Park. She enjoyed visiting with all the thousands of people that passed through and the hundreds of consignors that they had. Her grandsons, Gary and Josh, even learned to count money at the shop. She would let them help wait on people and count their change back to them.
Her favorite flower was lilacs. Leland would cut some every day that they were in bloom and make the house smell so sweet. She was a member of Good News Assembly of God Church.
LaReine is survived by her husband, Leland of Shubert, daughters, LeAnne Richey and her husband Gary of Falls City, Anna Barnett and her husband Harvey of Wingo, KY, grandson, Gary Richey, Jr. and his wife Velera and Josh Richey and his wife Molley of Falls City and LaCoda Tuthill of Wingo, KY, great-grandchildren, Lathan, Delana, Kimber and Beau. She was preceded in death by her parents, step-father, and a son, John Vice.
Her funeral will be held on Monday, January 13, 2020 at 10:30 AM at Good News Assembly of God Church with Pastor Tim Boatright officiating. Interment will be in Harris Cemetery.
The family will receive friends on Sunday from 3-4:00 PM at Dorr and Clark Funeral Home.
