Theodore B. Habrock (named after Theodore Roosevelt) was born March 21, 1920, on a farm near Emerson, Nebraska to Bernard and Lena (Harring) Habrock.  He attended rural school near Emerson where he developed a lifetime interest in reading, particularly about history.  Ted married Mylet Mueller on September 20, 1945, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Emerson.  Nearby, the newlyweds purchased a home and land where they farmed and fed cattle.   Upon retirement, the couple moved to a home 1 mile south of Emerson.  In 2015, they relocated to Brookdale-Wayne where they recently celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary.  Ted was a member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and was active in the Emerson Community, serving on the St. Paul’s Lutheran Church Council, Farmer’s Co-op Board, Emerson School Board, and others.  He will be fondly remembered for his wry sense of humor, his love of the land and the people of Northeast Nebraska, as well as card games, baseball, and most of all love of family.

Ted is survived by his wife, Mylet; four children,  Dean (Karen) Habrock of St. Joseph, MO,  Gene Habrock of Windsor, CO, Lorane (Randy) Slaybaugh of Denver, CO and Janice (John) Manganaro of Omaha; 14 grandchildren; 25 great-grandchildren; 8 great-great-grandchildren; sister, Helen Kai of Dalton; and many nieces and nephews.

Ted was preceded in death by his parents; five brothers, Francis, George, Caryl, Wilbur, and Roy; sister, Darlene Dolph; daughter-in-law, Pam Habrock; and great-grandson, Brett Habrock.
