Fr.  Loren Riebe Obituary
March 18, 1943 - August 4, 2018 Fr. Loren Riebe, born on March 18, 1943 in Los Angeles, California, passed away on August 4, 2018. He attended St. John's Seminary, Camarillo, and was ordained in January 1971. His first assignment was as the associate at St. Anne Church in Santa Monica. In 1976 Loren went as a missionary of the archdiocese to work with the indigenous of Chiapas, Mexico. He spent 36 years working with the people of that area. Especially close to his heart was the program he developed to provide academic and housing scholarships to allow Mayan youth to receive an education through university and then to provide services for the people of their villages. Loren is survived by his brother, Fr. Gary Riebe-Estrella, SVD. In lieu of flowers those who wish may donate in Loren's name to Mission Teaching Foundation (P.O. Box 29, Carmichael, CA 95609; missionteachingfoundation.org). Friends and family can pay their respects at the Mass of the Resurrection, celebrated by Fr. Gary Riebe, on Saturday, August 11 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. at St. Anne Catholic Church, 2011 Colorado Avenue, Santa Monica, California 90404. Viewing will begin at 9:00 a.m.
