Obituary ....

John W. Lorberg, 75, of Gordonville passed away Tuesday, April 9, 2013, at Saint Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau. He was born September 13, 1937, in Gordonville, son of Walter and Edna Sander Lorberg. He and Ellen Birk were married December 9, 1962, at Concordia Lutheran Church in Sikeston, Mo.

John attended Gordonville grade school and was a 1955 graduate of Jackson High School. In 1960, he earned a bachelor's degree in education from Southeast Missouri State University.

He joined the U.S. National Guard in 1955.

John was a lifelong member of Christ Lutheran Church in Gordonville, where he was an elder, Sunday school superintendent, and held various positions on committees and boards.

John was an innovative farmer, farming the Century Farms for the Lorberg and Birk families in Gordonville and Tilsit areas. He and his son and grandson created the JJT Tileing Co., which specializes in crop irrigation.

He was a member of Jackson School Board for 13 years, Jackson Foundation Board, Advisory Board for Gordonville Fire Department, Advisory Agriculture Board at Southeast Missouri State University, Gibson Center Board in Cape Girardeau and Gideons International Cape Camp.

He was instrumental in founding the St. Louis Iron Mountain and Southern Railroad in Jackson, and local Civil War re-enactments. He was a strong supporter of Heart for Africa and Dig Deep Water Wells, and an advocate of Amen Center Homeless Shelter in Delta.
