Meet Our Team
I have been involved in production agriculture all my life. In 1983 I became an insurance agent here in Buckley, Illinois. My office represents all lines of insurance. My staff and I provide honest insurance advice that help people manage risk, enhance wealth, and improve quality of life.
I am the office manager and part owner of Abbe Insurance Agency, LLC. I have been in the insurance business for 28 years and have lived in the area all my life. I grew up in Thawville and moved to Paxton when I married Larry Abbe 36 years ago. We have 2 daughters and 2 grandchildren.
Our goal in this Agency is to give our clients the best coverage and service they deserve.
I grew up in the small town of Buckley, Illinois where I attended St. John’s Lutheran Grade School and Buckley-Loda High School. I also attended Kankakee Community College. I currently live at Lake Iroquois in Loda with my husband Steve. I am a licensed agent and enjoy selling all types of insurance – which I have been doing since 1995. I would say my biggest asset in the insurance field is customer service. In a world where you are directed to call an 800 number, at our agency you get immediate help from us with your insurance questions.
I grew up in Columbus, Ohio but my husband was raised in Buckley. We moved back to the area in 2013 to be closer to family and help with the family farm. In 2014, I became a licensed agent. I currently live outside of Buckley with my husband and 2 children. We love living in the country and have fun raising pigs for our kids to show at the 4-H county fair. At Abbe Insurance we can assist you with all your insurance needs-- Customer Service is our number one priority. We pride ourselves in being local and having your best interest in mind!
