March 4, 1952 — May 10, 2017
Donald Edward Liebmann found eternal peace and healing on May 10, 2017. Heaven
gained the most amazing husband, dad, grandpa, brother, uncle, friend, teacher,
coach, hunter and fisherman.
Born in Milwaukee on March 4, 1952, to Walter and Arline Liebmann, Don enjoyed
sports, hunting and fishing.
He met his wife Margaret “Peg” Liebmann at Carroll College. In their 40 years of marriage they raised
two daughters, Megan (Nick) McCoy and Melissa (Eric) Woolridge, and welcomed five grandchildren:
Cole, Anna, Emma, Brielle and Gavin.
Together, Don and Peg embarked on many family vacations, and cheered on countless baseball, basketball
and volleyball games. There are so many wonderful memories his girls will forever cherish, including
those still to be made at Don and Peg’s cabin on Archibald Lake.
He also shared his life with his loving siblings, Sue (Bill) Lazarski, Al (Linda) Liebmann and Judy (Ed) Peters;
brother-in-law, Russ Pitzner; many nephews and nieces, and great friends.
Don spent much of his life outdoors and was surrounded by others that enjoyed it just as much. He was
involved with the Oakland Conservation Club, Wisconsin Conservation Congress, WI Football Coaches
Association and the Cooksville Lutheran Dartball Team. He was a certified Wisconsin Hunter Safety Instructor
and Bow Hunter Safety Instructor.
As a well-respected teacher in the Johnson Creek School District for over 30 years, he earned one of the
first Teacher of the Year awards.
Don treasured every moment he spent with his grandchildren and whether a baseball game, dance recital
or night out fishing, we know he’ll still be with us. Words cannot express how much he is loved and
will be missed.
