Florita Mary, the daughter of Joseph and Mary (Bellinghausen) Riesberg was born on February 19, 1929 at Templeton, Iowa. She grew up near Templeton, attended country school, and later attended Sacred Heart School. After her formal education, Florita helped on the family farm, and worked as a mother’s helper for many families in the area. On February 8, 1949, Florita was united in marriage to Raymond Sibbel at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Templeton. To this union five children were born. Florita and Raymond made their home south of Roselle where they were engaged in grain and livestock farming. In addition to farming, Florita was a devoted homemaker, caring for her five children and Raymond. She spent numerous hours tending her large garden, and canning the many fruits and vegetables it produced. Florita and Raymond retired to Carroll in 1998. Over the years, Florita volunteered in various capacities. She enjoyed visiting with, and spending time with her neighbors, sewing, and quilting. She made a quilt for every new grandchild, and another when they graduated from high school. Most of all, Florita cherished the time she spent with her children, and grandchildren, especially when they took the time to visit her. Florita was a former member of Holy Angels Parish in Roselle, former member of the Holy Angels Altar Society, current member of St. John Paul II Parish in Carroll, and member of the Carroll Catholic Daughters of the Americas.
