Louise Reiter was born March 25, 1924 to Philip and Katherine (Stefan) Reiter at Richardton. She was raised along with five sisters and one brother on her parent’s farm south of Richardton.
After completing her education, she taught one year at Aurora School in Stark County. During that year she was introduced to her future husband, Joseph N. Rebel. They were married Nov. 23, 1943. Together they farmed for four years north of Dickinson, then moved to a farm southwest of Hebron. During this time they raised one son and four daughters. In 1959 they moved to Dickinson, and two more sons were added to the family. In 1964 they purchased a farm near New England, where they ran a dairy and farming operation.
Joseph passed away in 1995 and Louise continued to run the farm with her youngest son. She retired in 2004 and moved back to Dickinson.
Louise loved gardening and canning what she had grown. She was a very good cook and baker, and loved having Sunday company. In her spare time she would relax with a good book. She also found time in her busy life to sew quilts for her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed visits from her many nieces and nephews.
