Michael Schreiber Obituary

Michael F. Schreiber, age 88, of Darboy passed away peacefully in his sleep early Monday morning, May 22, 2023 at his home. He was born on January 4, 1935 at home in the Town of Center, Wisconsin, oldest of 14 children born to the late Michael and Margaret (Schmidt) Schreiber.  Michael proudly served his country with the US Army.  On September 10, 1957 he married Alice Sprangers at Holy Angels Catholic Church in Darboy.  Their marriage was blessed with 11 children and 48 years before Alice passed away on December 8, 2005.  Mike was a hard-working man, earning him the nickname, Iron Mike. He lived his life to the fullest, always anticipating what the new day would bring. His positive spirit was enjoyed by everyone he met, especially the nurses who supported him during his extended illness.  He was a trucker, a devoted father and grandfather, and a man of great faith. His love for driving truck started at a young age driving tractor between the two dairy farms his family owned, one in Darboy and the other in Mackville.  He drove various truck routes for several different companies until his late retirement at the age of 83.

He is survived by his children:  Dennis (Deb); James (Maria) and their five children: Eric, Alyssa, Brad, Mitchell, and Scott; Norbert (Susan) and their four children: Jaime, Benjamin, David, and Phillip; Pamela Wolff and her three children: Christopher, Jeremy, and Bryan; Michael (Lisa) and their four children: Brent, Alanna, Samuel, and Daniel; Christine (Andres) Rodriguez and their three children: Nicole, Skye, and Chyeann; George (Lori) and their three children: Abby, Anne, and Maggie; Bruce (Wanda) and their three children: Austin, Brett, and Madison; Kenneth (Gwen) and their three children: Erica, Bryce, and Kendra; Lori (Eric) Ashbrenner and their six children: Brooke, Nathan, Alice, Grant, James, and Nora; Stan (Dana) and their two children: Larkin and Ava; 33 great grandchildren;  siblings: Ray (Lois) Schreiber, Jerome (Dianne) Schreiber, Silvia (Gary) Breier, Bob (Mary) Schreiber, Ron (Kathy) Schreiber, Joe Schreiber, Angie (Jim) Hall, Mary (Mike) Olson, Sue Jacobson; brothers and sisters-in-law: Jim Schmalz, Clarence Schneider, Mary Sprangers, Linda Sprangers; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.  In addition to his parents, and his beloved wife, Alice, Mike was preceded in death by his parents-in-law, George and Mary Sprangers; an infant brother, Eugene; siblings: Marge Schmalz, Barb Gillis, Beck Schreiber; brothers and sisters-in-law: Gin (Butch) Friebel, Eileen Schneider, Gerald Gillis, Chuck Jacobson, Charles Sprangers, Fred Sprangers, George Sprangers Jr., Lillian (Leon) Hartzheim.
