Ingeborg Huber was born November 11, 1938 in Marienload, Czech Republic, the daughter of Johann and Anna Maria (Punzet) Huber. She grew up in the Czech Republic and moved to Germany during World War II. While living in Germany, Inge met the love of her life, Ralph Higgins. Inge and Ralph were married on January 21, 1959 in Manheim, Germany. To this union five children were born: Alba, Alice, Bruce, Darrell, and Ronda. After Ralph’s retirement from the Army in 1975, the family moved to Plevna, MT where they made their home.
Inge worked at the Plevna Public School for 12 years as the playground monitor. After retiring from the school, she continued to live in Plevna, doing the things she loved; sewing, crafts, cooking, taking care of her family and enjoying time with her grandchildren.
