    Notes 
    • From the Evansville Courier & Press, 20 Oct 2006: "Ella Marie (Leinenbach) Combs, 87, of Evansville, passed away on Thursday, Oct. 19, 2006, at the VNA Charlier Hospice Center. As a young lady, Ella attended St. Boniface Catholic Church and School. Some of her fondest memories involved the activities, people, and places of her youth in the old West Side. During World War II, she helped build P-47s at the Servel plant and she was very proud to have been one of the "Rosie the Riveters." During this period, she also belonged to the USO and helped to entertain troops at Camp Breckenridge, Kentucky. Ella worked for most of her life in retail sales at such well known stores as Lois', The Evansville Store, and DeJong's. She retired from Deters Jewelers in 1984, where she was the gift shop manager and bridal consultant. She was as quick with a wisecrack as with an act of kindness to someone in need. She felt deeply for the less fortunate and often quoted the adage that 'A single act of charity atones for a multitude of sins.' She was a parishioner at St. Benedict Cathedral, where she sang in the choir for over 20 years. She was preceded in death by her husband, Sidney Combs, in 1974; her mother and father, Helen and Anton Leinenbach; her brothers, Levinus and Clarence Leinenbach; and an infant sister, Catharine Leinenbach. She is survived by her son, Mike Combs; a granddaughter, Carrie Combs; a great-granddaughter, Summer Combs; and many loving nieces and nephews. Services will be on Saturday, Oct. 21 at 8:30 a.m. at Ziemer Funeral Home, continued at 9 a.m. at St. Benedict Cathedral. Burial will be in St. Joseph Cemetery."
