Don had a complete reverse shoulder replacement Monday. The shoulder was in bad shape but the Dr. was able to get the new one in just fine. Now that the pain is under control he is doing okay. sounds like he will be doing therapy for 6-8 weeks.
William George Saubert, 82, passed away peacefully at the William Childes Hospice House in Palm Bay, Florida on July 4, 2013.
Bill was born at Bergland, Michigan on January 20, 1931 to Jane (Willis) and William Saubert. Bill was a graduate of the Bergland Community Schools in 1950. As a child, he held a fascination for trains which led to his vocation until his retirement in 1989. Following his retirement he and his wife Dorothy moved to Donna, Texas. He moved to Florida this spring due to health reasons and to be closer to family.
Bill is survived by two brothers, Philip (Sue), neice Jane Marie of Vera Beach, Florida and brother Richard of Melbourne and numerous cousins. He was preceded in death by his wife and parents.
Cremation has taken place. A committal service will be held by Trinity Lutheran Church of Bergland at a later date.
The family wishes to extend a heartfelt thanks to the many friends and neighbors, especially Jim and Kay Voss for their support and kindness while he lived in Texas.
We are still picking aspargus from the garden...most has gone to seed, but I still pick every other day. We eat it, freeze it and give away lots of it. I have several gallon bags already frozen. Jim found a handful of peas, also the red raspberries are starting to turn....so the busy season continues! Kay
Some have wondered what is going on here in Minnesota....yesterday I made jelly! Our 2 cherry trees that were split right in half due to the ice storm in April still produced a bucket of cherries, so I got a pie and jelly from that...then we picked the gooseberries and I made more jelly. First time harvesting from the bush---wow what thorns, just like trying to deal with a catcus!
We are one of the oldest parks in the valley and within walking distance of the famous Don-Wes Flea Market. Along with being one of the oldest we also have the wonderful reputation for being a friendly and active park. We have an association of members who give generously of their time in a myriad of ways to make coming to the Rio Grande Valley each winter a whole bunch of fun for everyone. So come on down and have fun with us!!!
