Toy was born on October 5, 1927 to Joseph and Catherine Weiss of Glencoe. She grew up and graduated from Glencoe High School. After high school, Toy moved to Belle Plaine to help her sister and brother in law run O'Hagan's Hi-Way Bar and Grill. During that time, Toy met Mark Huber. On January 27, 1948, they were married.
After raising three children, Toy began working with her husband in the family owned Huber’s Red Owl Store which later became Huber’s Supervalu. Toy was a hard worker and the store provided her with a variety of jobs that kept her busy. She worked at the store into her 80’s and finally retired when the business was sold in 2010.
Toy was an amazing cook and an immaculate house keeper. She enjoyed preparing favorite dishes for her adult children and grandchildren. You never left her home hungry. She loved us all passionately and would give each of us the world if she could. There isn’t a holiday that goes by that we don’t think about how perfect and memorable she made each one. Thank you, dear Mother.
