Lillie Ann Hybertson Obituary
Lillie Ann Hybertson

Lillie Ann Hybertson passed away peacefully November 10, 2016 at Avera Dougherty Hospice House in Sioux Falls. Born September 5, 1931 on the family farm near Beresford to Elmer and Lillie Larson, Lillie Ann graduated from Beresford High School and Augustana College. She married Paul Hybertson in 1954, and they raised their five children in Sioux Falls.

Lillie Ann was employed by the Sioux Falls Public Library and the City of Sioux Falls personnel office. Paul's career with the South Dakota National Guard led them to Rapid City in 1977, where Lillie Ann worked for the Rapid City Public Schools personnel department. A renowned and accomplished home cook, she also enjoyed reading, needlework, and an active volunteer life with the Wesleyan Church, Rapid City Regional Hospital Auxiliary, and numerous other causes.

After her husband's death, Lillie Ann returned to Sioux Falls and resided at Good Samaritan Prairie Creek Lodge. Lillie Ann was a deeply loving and supportive mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. The candy bowl was always full, the Scrabble board or jigsaw puzzle was in play, and the Twins or Vikings played in the background. She was firmly grounded in her spiritual life and treasured her relationships with Crossroads Wesleyan Church in Rapid City, Linwood Wesleyan Church in Sioux Falls, and the Prairie Creek Chapel.

Lillie Ann was preceded in death by her husband Paul Hybertson, grandson Matthew Farmen, great-grandson Henry Opoien, and son-in-law Ray Dickerson. She is survived by her children Joel & Kathy Hybertson of Sioux Falls, Julee and Dale Farmen of Katy TX, Mary and Tom Frederick of Sioux Falls, Susan Dickerson and Louie DeSimone of Sioux Falls, and Karen Ellman of Minneapolis MN. Her meatballs, lemon meringue pies, and cinnamon and caramel rolls will be fondly remembered by her surviving grandchildren Christopher, Corey, Kristen, and Scott Hybertson; Molly and Jacob Farmen; Sam Frederick and Janet Fearnside; Joseph and Andrew Dickerson; Greg, Jane, and Libby Opoien; and nine great-grandchildren. Lillie Ann was fortunate to have enjoyed the life-long love and enduring friendship of her surviving sisters and brothers-in-law Alice Mae and Howard Kennedy of Beresford SD and Judy and Marlin Mehrens of Primghar IA, and well as her nieces and nephews and their families.

The Hybertson family is grateful for the care provided by the Avera and Good Samaritan systems, and particularly the Dougherty Hospice House care team during her extended stay.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 am Tuesday, November 15 at Miller Southside Chapel, 7400 S. Minnesota Avenue in Sioux Falls. Remains will be committed at Black Hills National Cemetery in Sturgis SD at a later date. Please direct memorials to Avera Dougherty Hospice House or Rapid City Regional Hospital Hospice of the Hills.
