Loxi was born October 21, 1949, in Parkston, South Dakota, to Leo and Delphine (Hein) Laber. She grew up in Freeman, South Dakota. Loxi spent her elementary years at St. Paul Lutheran Day School and graduated from Freeman High School in 1967. She attended Northern State College in Aberdeen, SD, graduating in 1971 with an English major. Later she received her Master’s Degree from Wayne State in Wayne, Nebraska in Guidance Counseling.
Loxi started her teaching career in Wagner, South Dakota, then on to Winner, South Dakota, until she finally made Hartington Public High School her permanent home. Loxi married Jess Wolf in Hartington, Nebraska, on June 16, 1989.
She was a member of Holy Trinity Catholic Church. Loxi always loved learning and was an avid reader. She also loved to garden and travel. She was the best sister and aunt to her nieces and nephews; she always remembered them and took a genuine interest in their lives. To her sisters, she was always known as Dodie (family nickname). There was never a Loxi without Jess! They were the perfect pair. From their baking at holidays to their love of shopping and giving. When multiple sclerosis came into the picture, Loxi handled it like everything else, with grace. It robbed her so much, but she always had her smile. Loxi had the best care giver in Jess. He took care of her needs with love and commitment. The last year without him, she seemed to decline. There is peace in knowing that on June 16th of this year they will celebrate their anniversary together.
She is survived by sisters: Connie (Vern) Handel, San Antonio, Texas; Loa (Marty) Arno of Vancouver, Washington; Loy (Dan) Herrboldt of Freeman, South Dakota and Haylee (Ron) Ribstein of Spearfish, South Dakota. Nieces: Tami Hackett, Tiffany Dawson (Jack Abrams); Burgandy (Jake) Rempfer; and Katherine (Austen) Erickson. Nephews: Robin (Ashley) Handel; Jeremy (Melissa) Herrboldt; Adam (Zora) Herrboldt; Jim (Erin) Wolf; Jared (Amy) Wolf; and Jon (Hannah) Wolf. Brothers-in law: Jack (Linda) Wolf, Atkinson, Nebraska; and Jay Wolf & special friend Jill, Spearfish, South Dakota; aunts Beatrice Hein and Lois Laber.
Loxi was preceded in death by her husband, Jess Wolf on 2/11/2021 at the age of 69 years; parents Leo and Delphine Laber; in-laws Dick and Evelyn Wolf.
