Abby was born the daughter of Larry and Marcia (Damstra) Lubbert on October 6, 1978 in Columbus. She was a graduate of Hartford High School. Abby honorably served her country in the US Army and served in Iraq from 2003-2005 as a combat medic and then continued her service in the national guard until 2008. Abby was united in marriage to Mitch Sauer on June 8, 2013 in Pelican Lake, Wisconsin. She continued her nursing career at Hartford Hospital. Abby then took the position of Dodge County Public Health Officer during the pandemic and was remarkable in her position during an impossible public health emergency. Abby was currently employed at SSM Health in Beaver Dam in family practice as a triage nurse. She was a member of Trinity United Methodist Church in Lomira and an active member of the Miller-Justman-Guelig American Legion Post #270 in Theresa, as well as, the Legion Auxiliary in Theresa. Abby had a giant heart and would help anyone who asked. She was quick to volunteer and always gave a hundred percent in anything she took on. She was involved with the Lomira Booster Club and the Boy Scouts of America. She loved living an active lifestyle and enjoyed running, swimming, and biking. Abby also had a love for the outdoors and looked forward to camping trips. Travel also was near and dear and she was fortunate enough to travel to Germany, India, Greece, Ireland, Mexico, and Jamaica.
First and foremost for Abby was her love of family. She was always there for them, whether it be a wrestling tournament for her son Warren or to help her father split wood and bale hay. There was nothing that could stop her from being with those who she loved and always made sure that others felt that love as well.

Her siblings Wyland Lubbert of Oshkosh, Otis Lubbert of Hustisford, Amanda (Shawn) Bartel of Aberdeen, SD., Julie (Rich) Steinbrink of Driftwood, TX., and Joshua (Kaiti) Lubbert of Rubicon. Her half sister Stacy Robinson of York, PA. Her in laws- Jim and Barb Sauer of Theresa. Further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.
