Jennie was born on January 10, 1918, in Sioux City, Iowa, to parents, Henry and Alexandria (Golub) Wanda, both immigrants from Russia. She attended Sioux City Public Schools and went on to beauty school. Jennie married Maurice 'Toad' Treiber on February 6, 1941, in Danbury, Iowa, and they raised five daughters. After they moved to Sioux City in 1960, Jennie worked outside of the home and ultimately retired from Bottenfield's Beauty Supply, where she was store manager. The Treibers spent their retirement years in Alamo, Texas. Toad died in 2001 and, in 2006, Jennie moved to Minnesota to be near her family.
Jennie Treiber is survived by daughters Teresa (Rick Wagner) and Janet (Ted Harvey), both of Osakis, Minnesota, son-in-laws, Jim Cunningham, Sergeant Bluff, Iowa, and Jim Hansen, Osakis, Minnesota, 4 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild.
Jennie is preceded in death by her parents, husband, daughters Janice Treiber, Barbara Hansen and Margaret Cunningham, brother Roger Wanda and sisters Ella Karolick and Helen Ryan. Honorary pallbearers are Jim Cunningham, Rick Wagner, Jim Hansen and Ted Harvey.
Jennie was a special lady who will be missed by many. She sustained her grace and wit throughout the years. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation today to your favorite cause or charity in Jennie's memory. Mom, you will always be loved and remembered. Off and running at Atokad!
