Robert K. “Bob” Mayberry was born March 22, 1940 in Council Bluffs, Iowa to Lucius Raymond and Ferril (Lindgren) Mayberry.

Bob’s family moved across the Missouri River to Omaha, NB. He was the youngest of four children, attended school and met his future wife, Jeneane Welling. They were married September, 1959 and started their family in Omaha. In October, 1972, they moved with their three young daughters to a small hobby farm east of Motley which they stated countless times, “was the best decision they ever made.”

He took after his father, working the majority of his adult life in sales all the while hunting and fishing as much as he could in his spare time. Fishing was his all-time favorite hobby.

Bob is survived by two daughters, Kelly (Patrick) Bienusa of Duluth and Dana Fischer of Motley; one sister, Marilyn Petrik of Castle Pines, CO; nine grandchildren, Corey Gibson, Heather Campbell, Jessie Griffith, Jordan Mayberry, Beth Griffith, Becky Griffith, Taylor Bienusa, Tanner Fischer and Madison Fischer; two great grandsons, Gabe Gibson and Aiden Bounds; as well as many nieces, nephews and special friends. 

He was preceded in death by his beautiful wife of 54 years, Jeneane; his parents; step-mother, Louise Mayberry; two sisters, Betty and Janice; one daughter, Kimberly Griffith and one son, Randy Mayberry.

Arrangements are by the Brenny Family Funeral Chapel of Staples,                                   w51c  A00006B2020DC16
