Herbert “Herb” Fieberling passed away on October 14, 2019, at the age of 82. He was born on February 21, 1937, in Kassel, Germany, to Heinrich and Hildegard (Jakobi) Fieberling. He and his family immigrated to St Louis, Missouri, in the 1950s. There he finished high school, started college and was drafted into the US Army. The army sent him back to Europe to a base in France. After his discharge, he returned to St Louis where he met his wife Theresia at a dance. They were soon married, and his job took them to Colorado Springs.

His job eventually took him to Denver, Munich, back to Denver, on to Detroit, and then Minneapolis. That’s when he had enough and decided to retire at the age of 59.

They returned to Colorado Springs in 1992 where Herb and Theresia built a house and enjoyed retirement. This included annual vacations to the beach, dancing, and generally enjoying everything life had to offer.

He was President of the Austrian-American Enzian club. He loved a good laugh and a cold beer.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his wife. He is survived by his children, Edward Fieberling and Susan (husband John) Anderson, all of Aurora, Colorado.

A memorial service will be held at 10:00 am on Tuesday, October 22nd at the Shrine of Remembrance, 1730 E Fountain Blvd., Colorado Springs, CO 80910.

  1. I’m sorry to read about Herb’s passing. He was always a great friend to my parents and me through the Enzian Club. My thoughts and prayers are with Herb’s family and friends. Sincerely, Fred Wolff

  2. Herb was a great fellow….friend to all. Will miss his presence at the Enzian Club function and his jotting around town. Rest in Peace and keep Dancing!

  3. Herb will be missed as our president at the Austrian-American Enzian Club, but not just as our president, but as a kind, good-hearted and generous man. Herb came across sometimes as hard, but after you got to know him and he got to know you, you had a friend for life. Herb was a great dancer, joke teller, and he was not scared to make a fool of himself. One time at our Fasching he dressed up as a women. Gosh, I still remember -the entire room burst out into laughter. He had on a woman’s dress, a hat, gloves, earrings, pearls, purse, and high heeled shoes. – now just thinking of him in this outfit puts a smiling grin on my face.
    He did so much for our club. One time he donated 50 poinsettias plants to all the lady members of our club. He also came up with great ideas for our outings. He arranged our bus tours, but before we went on a trip, Herb always drove himself to the place and checked it out to see if it was a good enough for our club members and that we had a good restaurant close by where he would make reservations for all of us.
    Gosh, we miss you !!!
