Leibold, Bernice Margaret, nee Dolinski, age 92, of Bartlett and formerly of South Barrington, passed away on September 21, 2019. Loving and much loved wife of Robert Leibold, with whom she shared 69 years of marriage. From their first meeting on a blind date in Reading, PA, Bob and Bernice’s life together was a blessed adventure. Through the years Bob’s work relocations took them to Milwaukee, WI, Bloomington, MN, Hingham, MA, Walnut, CA, and lastly to Illinois. They lived in Naperville and South Barrington for many years before moving to Bartlett in 2014. After Bob retired, they enjoyed traveling the world together. Bernice especially enjoyed golfing, spending time with grandchildren, working in her gardens, overwintering in Palm Springs, watching cardinals at the feeder, relaxing at their lake home in Wisconsin, and cheering-on her Chicago Bears. Bernice was a devoted mother to her four children – Karen (Steven Ratiner) Leibold of Arlington, MA; Thomas (Julie DeLuca) Leibold of Kalamazoo, MI; Steven (Maria Gragasin-Leibold) Leibold of Winfield, IL; and Paula (James Raymond III) Kinney of Naperville, IL. She is also survived by seven grandchildren and one great-grandson.
