Obituary - Wauneta Breeze

Life-long Wauneta resident Brice Fredric Rueter passed away Dec. 30, 2005. He was born on Feb. 25, 1944, in Holdrege, Neb., to Carl and Ann Holbein Rueter.

Growing up in Wauneta, Brice was very active in 4-H, graduated from Wauneta High School where he played trumpet in the band and participated in several singing groups.

He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1966 from the University of Nebraska. He was a member of Theta Xi Fraternity. He received his law degree from the University of Nebraska in 1971 and returned home to Wauneta to practice law and farm.

His real love was woodworking. His grandfather clocks were masterpieces of design and execution and the wood work in his former law office in Wauneta attests to his remarkable creativity and craftsmanship.

In recent years, Brice suffered from Multiple Sclerosis and spent the last 13 years of his life at Heritage of Wauneta where he received kind and attentive care.

Services were held Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2006, at 1:30 p.m. at the United Methodist Church, Wauneta, Neb., with Pastor Judy Dye officiating.

Music was provided by Mrs. Lucille McBride, pianist and Mrs. Sharon Walgren, soloist.

He was inurned with his mother and father at Riverside Cemetery, Wauneta.

Liewer Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
