Earl DeWayne Hibbing, the son of Carl H. and Margaret (Kniese) Hibbing was born October 13, 1937 on the family farm in Dale Township OBrien County, near Paullina, Iowa. He received his education in Paullina schools and graduated from Paullina High School in 1956. After his graduation he started farming the family farm north of Paullina. Earl lived his entire life on the farm and on August 11, 1979, he was united in marriage to Nancy Werkmeister at the Zion Lutheran Church in Paullina. Their entire married life has been spent on the Hibbing family farm. Earl passed away on Thursday, February 12, 2015 at the Mercy Medical Center in Sioux City, Iowa reaching the age of 77 years, 3 months and 29 days.
Earl was baptized on November 21, 1937 and later confirmed on June 1, 1952 and was a lifelong member of the Zion Lutheran Church in Paullina. While in high school Earl enjoyed music which he carried on after high school playing the trumpet in Merle Kuehls dance band for five years. In later years he sang in the Zion Lutheran Choir. He liked to bowl and did bowl a 300 game. He enjoyed playing cards and being on the family farm. Earl was very mechanical and was able to fix about anything. In his younger years he worked on go-carts with many of his neighbors. He and Nancy in 1983 helped with compiling the Paullina Centennial history book and in later years both volunteered at the SOS Office in Primghar.
