Leola Elizabeth Ebinger, age 95 of Holton, Indiana, surrounded by her family, entered the gates of heaven early Friday evening, June 3, 2016 at the Manderley Health Care Center in Osgood. She was the loving daughter of the late Leo John and Eva Marie Koechlin Miller. Leola married Charles Edward Ebinger on April 17, 1948 and to this union, three sons and three daughters were born. At an early age, Charles preceded her in death on November 4, 1968, leaving Leola with five children still at home to raise. With great spiritual strength and strong work ethics, she successfully raised her family! Working for the US Shoe Factory in Osgood for approximately 15 years and raising gardens were ways in which she provided for her family. Attending St. John’s Catholic Church of Osgood was a very important part of her family’s life. She was a very devoted member and had also served on the Parish Council. Quilting had always been a great passion. She gave quilts to each of her children, grandchildren, and also to many friends. Each great grandchild received a baby quilt.  In her later years, she enjoyed being a member of the local Red Hatters’.
