Dorothy Marie (Geppert) Urban was born on July 4, 1924 to Henry and Margaret (Lucas) Geppert in Kimball, SD, the third youngest of 11 children. She attended country school and graduated from Kimball High School in 1942. She worked for Adolph and Della Burian for two years in their home and clerking in their grocery store before marrying Leonard Joseph Urban on June 21, 1944 at St. Margaret’s Parsonage in Kimball.

They began their life together farming north of Kimball and raising their four children: Dick, Diane, Dennis and Ray. She remained on the farm until moving to Kimball in 2006. Our mother was a loving and devoted wife, and cared for her children with a warm affection that only a mother knows. Time spent with family, grandchildren, and great grandchildren were precious to her.

Along with the farm chores and household duties, she often found herself hostess to the many friends and neighbors that stopped by for a cup of coffee and bite to eat. She enjoyed socializing, especially playing cards in card club and going to dances with dad. She also kept busy with quilting and crocheting.

Her Catholic faith was central to her life; regular mass attendance, reading the Bible, and praying the rosary daily. Dorothy was a member of St. Margaret’s Catholic Church, Catholic Daughters of America, Altar Society and even taught Catechism for a year in her 80’s.

Grateful for having shared in Dorothy’s life, her children, 14 grandchildren and 30 great grandchildren: son, Dick (Karen) Urban of Hillsboro, WI and children: Sheila (Chris) Eisermann – Kinza, Chloe and Jacob, Stacie (Sam) Bosley – Mason, Sydney and Marcus, Gina (Eric) Auel – Payton, Andrea and Lauren, Rick (Sadie) Urban – Reed and Tess, Brian (Liz Arthur) Urban – Lily; daughter, Diane Barr (friend, Ken) of Houston, TX and children: Gary (Linda) Barr and Kristoffer Barr; son, Dennis (Ginger) Urban of Kimball, SD and children: Jeff Urban – Bailee and Spencer, Jason (Marcey) Urban – Devan, Cole and Sarah, Chad (Robyn) Urban – Mariah and Dawson, Skyler (Sophia Strubbe) Urban; daughter-in-law, Jan Urban of Pukwana, SD and children: Michael (Nichole) Urban – Anthony and Allison, Ryan (Samantha) Urban – Trace, Huntley, Rhett and Briggs, Tara (Kyle) Wieczorek – Reagan, Emma and Carter, Brooklynn (Ross) Kieffer – Savanna and Sullivan; two sisters-in-law: Agnes Geppert and Janice Geppert; brother-in-law, Bob (Pat) Urban; along with many nieces and nephews.

Dorothy was preceded in death by: her husband of 56 years, Leonard Urban (Feb. 9, 2001); son, Raymond Urban; son-in-law, James Barr; two grandsons: Kelly Urban and Thomas Barr; her parents, Henry and Margaret Geppert; and 10 siblings: Lillian Blasius, Myrtle Spier, Clarence Geppert, William Geppert, Adolph Geppert, Mildred Hora, Margaret Maiers, Ernest Geppert Leonard Geppert and Jane Geppert.

Grandma was filled with faith, love, and compassion. She shared these freely and could make you feel so good with a simple smile. The amazing cookies didn't hurt either :)

Rest in peace Grandma.

I remember Grandma as someone who showed her love through hugs, piles of cookies, tables full of food, and through her beautiful smile and twinkling eyes. She spent so many years caring for everyone around her and was amazing with children and, of course, played a mean game of cards. When we would come to visit, she would remember what treat we liked best and had it ready or, better yet, let us make it with her. She was such a strong person, with a faith that could not be shaken. We wish we could be with you to celebrate and remember Grandma. All our love, Stacie Bosley (Urban) and family
