Gloria Jane (Nieman) Bobich, age 86 of Nashwauk, MN, passed away on November 26, 2021 at Aspen Grove Assisted Living in Chisholm, MN. Gloria was born and raise on the family farm in Grey Eagle, MN. She was the youngest of a large blended family. Henry and Anna (Gangl) Nieman truly saved “the best for last!”. Grade school was in a two room schoolhouse. She graduated from Upsala High School. She moved and met her husband Robert Bobich. They blessed their children with the happiest of childhoods on “good old Third Street” in Nashwauk!
She worked at Precision Tool, Wards and Sears. In the Seventies, she enjoyed painting beautiful ceramics, which is actually a metaphor for her life – everything and everyone whom Gloria touched was all the more beautiful for it! Her favorite activity was “going for a ride” with her sister Ange. She was an avid Twins fan and loved to read, bake, and make afghans for all of her family. Gloria was nothing but loving, kind, accepting and good to all. She was truly wonderful.
She is survived by her sister Adeline Schroetter, brother Richard Nieman; children Robbie (Nancy), Duane (Jacki) and Sherri Senogles (Mark Frensko); grandchildren Jason Senogles (Brandy Sallila), Justin (Jen) Senogles, Paul (Quinn) Bobich, Katie (Erich) Heppner; 6 great grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by husband, parents and siblings of the Nieman and Waldvogel Families; Duane, Fran, Anna Marie, George, Bernard, Oswald, Harold, Herb, Hilbert, Rupert, Boyd, Dorothy, Carol, Mabel and Jessie.
A private Mass of Christian Burial was held at St. Cecilia’s Catholic Church in Nashwauk, MN and in accordance with Gloria’s faith, although it was a small group, at the consecration, the church was full!
