Louis E. Tebbe, age 95 of Batesville, died Thursday, May 23, 2019, at Ripley Crossing.
Born March 21, 1924, in Franklin County, Indiana, he is the son of Anna (nee Dickman) and William Tebbe. He married Sylvia Krieger October 9, 1948, at St. Martin's Church in Yorkville, Indiana, and she preceded him in death December 1, 2003.
Louie farmed for over 60 years before retiring in 1992. He was a good businessman and proud that he treated everyone fairly in his business dealings.
A member of St. Louis Church, his faith was important. He supported the church and its functions throughout his lifetime. When Louie retired and moved to town, he quickly became a fixture as he walked daily and meticulously cared for his lawn. He put the same care and effort into his garden each year. According to his family, Louie was an avid card player and loved 500.
He is survived by his daughters Mary Hornbach of Harrison, Ohio, Luann Anderson of Broadway, North Carolina; grandchildren Kirsten Hornbach of Taylor Mill, Kentucky, and Morgan Anderson and Carter Anderson, both of Broadway, North Carolina.
In addition to his wife and parents, he is also preceded in death by sisters Mary Jane Tebbe, Marian Bischoff, Monica Ruberg, Florence Sturwold and brothers John, William and Francis Tebbe.
Visitation is Wednesday, May 29, from 9-11 a.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home. Funeral services follow at 11:30 a.m. with Rev. Stan Pondo officiating and burial in the church cemetery. The family requests memorials to St. Louis School or the St. Louis Cemetery Fund.

Mary and Luann, I was sorry to find out that your dad passed. Haven't seen you guys in years. I know your dad was almost like a brother to my dad, Wilfred. I will always remember your mom and dad and my mom and dad playing cards together on a Saturday night while the kids played. Those were the good old days. I live outside of Brookville,In. now. I am getting married to Tom Geis on July 27. Hope your families are doing good.
