Mary T. Nobbe-Volz, age 89 of Batesville, died Wednesday, February 17, 2021 at St. Andrew’s Health Campus. Born May 20, 1931 in Ripley County Indiana, she is the daughter of Minnie (Neihaus) and Alois Stolz. She married Werner Nobbe October 28, 1950 at St. Louis Church in Batesville and he preceded her in death September 16, 1988. She married Harry Volz April 24, 1997 at Holy Family Church and he preceded her in death September 28, 2015. She worked in the sewing department at Batesville Casket over 20 years before retiring in 1996.
Mary loved nothing more than a room filled with family and laughter. A great cook, it wouldn’t take long for the house to fill with the anticipation of her fried chicken and lemon dessert. Like any good grandma, she doted on and spoiled her grandkids as well as Bootsie the cat, her beloved furry friend. Never one to watch much T.V., Mary was an avid reader, quilted for much of her life and liked doing crossword puzzles and word searches. She also loved working in her flower beds and vegetable garden. The garden provided an abundance of produce, canning the excess to help feed the family over the winter. In later years, she and Harry would winter in Florida where she took up golfing.
Mary is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Belinda and Chris Brown of Greensburg; son and daughter-in-law’s Ken and Teri Nobbe, Doug and Cathy Nobbe, Cliff Nobbe, Tom and Nancy Nobbe, Bill and Elizbeth Nobbe, all of Oldenburg; stepson Tim Volz of Batesville; step daughter Janet Andrews; thirteen grandchildren, eighteen great grandchildren and one great great grandson. In addition to her husbands and parents, she is also preceded in death by her son Gary “Gramps” Nobbe and stepdaughter Judy Caruso.
