Family Helped 89-Year-Old Grandmother Keep Her Secret, Then They Spilled The Beans At Her Funeral

In July 2016, Margaret Hubl, a loving mother and dear friend to many, passed away at the age of 89. Being the mother of a large family, the Nebraskan woman knew she needed to leave something behind for her children, and their children, to remember her by, so, she decided to leave them a special gift at her funeral service. Mrs. Hubl was a quilter, and had made hundreds of quilts for friends and family over the years. When she realized her time was coming to a close, she decided to begin a special project for her family to remember her by. Mrs. Hubl worked and worked, creating a series of quilts that perfectly communicated her love to her family and loved ones.

By the time Mrs. Hubl passed away, her project was ready to be revealed. Mrs. Hubl’s children and grandchildren received all the quilts she had made, and draped them over every pew in the church for the duration of her service. One participant, Christina Tollman, told TODAY: “we covered almost every single pew in that church. I never knew how many she actually made”. The display was meant to be a beautiful final tribute to the loving matriarch of the family. The family took and shared a series of photos taken of the church, which then went viral on social media. Mrs. Hubl was well known for her generosity, compassion, and love for her family of five children, two of which were her sister-in-law’s, who tragically died in an accident.

Along with her husband Henry, Mrs. Hubl raised all five children on their farmstead, in a small three-bedroom home. When her children began to have children of their own, Mrs. Hubl decided to put her practical sewing skills to a different use. She made quilts for the children when they went away to school for when they graduated and even when they got married. The grandchildren who were not married at the time of Mrs. Hubl’s passing were not forgotten and the elderly quilter had sewn quilts for them too. Ms. Tollman revealed she had three cousins who weren’t married at the time of Mrs. Hubl’s funeral, but “got to see their quilts for the first time,” which deeply touched the hearts of Mrs. Hubl’s entire extended family. This selfless, caring grandmother created the perfect keepsake for her children and grandchildren, ensuring they will always feel her love in their lives.
