Leila (Hansen) Lamprecht was born on October 24, 1931, to Chris and Caroline Hansen in Bloomfield. Leila passed away peacefully on October 13, 2020, in Lincoln at 88 years old. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, a "drive-in" parking lot memorial service will be held at St. Mark's Lutheran Church on Oct. 24, 2020, at 1:00 p.m. (There will be no luncheon or graveside services.)
Leila attended Bloomfield Schools, graduating in 1948, and was employed as a school teacher for two years prior to marrying Bill Lamprecht in June of 1950. Six children were born to this union (Douglas, Daryl, Jeanne, Lori, Kurt, and Tedd -- mom's half dozen). Farming in Wausa for 23 years then took the Lamprechts to farming in Bloomfield for another 23 years before retiring. Leila was notoriously known for her ability to handle any task handed to her. She was an accomplished housewife, mother, farmhand, friend, cousin, aunt, etc. The Lamprecht house was always known for having lots of people at the kitchen table – kids, hired men, friends, and extended family.
Leila’s courage and faith were put to the test all throughout her life. The Lamprechts lost three sons at young ages throughout the years. Leila may have been crumbling on the inside, but on the outside, she was the picture of total strength, always guided by faith and the desire to be a true servant of the Good Lord.
Leila and Bill were fortunate to have spent many winters in Mission, Texas, and enjoyed extensive traveling. A lifelong member of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, Leila served on the church council, taught Sunday School, and also served in many other roles within the Church. Leila also was a member of P.E.O., Eastern Star, and the American Legion Auxiliary.
In October of 2012, Leila and Bill moved to the Legacy Estates in Lincoln, enjoying family time, making new friends, and still treasuring their friends in Knox County and Texas.
Before passing away, Leila expressed her gratitude for a life well lived, for the love of family and friends, and she confided in her children that the Good Lord was ready to take her “home”. She was at peace knowing that faith guided her entire life and that faith was now transitioning her for the final chapter of her life.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her siblings (Wayne Hansen, Eugene Hansen, Lois Sage, Luella Wood, and Lucille Hansen); three sons (Douglas, Daryl, and Kurt); and her husband, Bill.
Surviving are her children Jeanne (Rick) Beaudette, Lori (Monte) Moss, and Tedd Lamprecht; 7 grandchildren; and 13 great grandchildren.
Memorials are suggested to St. Mark's Lutheran Church (Bloomfield) or Sheridan Lutheran Church (Lincoln).
