     Pauline Ann (Kruger) Stubbe was born on August 11, 1930 in a local hospital in the George area to Peter A. and Carrie (Haack) Kruger.  She spent her youth on a farm outside of George as well as living in the town of George.  She graduated from George High School in 1947.  She then went on to attend college at Westmar in LeMars, Iowa to obtain a teaching degree.  She spent several years teaching from late 1947 into the 1950s at various country schools and was very proud of those years of teaching.  She continued substitute teaching in the public school system after her country school career ended.

     On August 15, 1948, she married the love of her life Clarence Stubbe at Hope Reformed Church. It was the first wedding in the newly built church. On one of their very first dates he asked if he could walk her home and her response was “the streets aren’t crowded”.  They never forgot that line throughout their marriage of 73 years.  They lived in George for a short period of time before moving to a farm in Little Rock, Iowa in 1951.  They attended Zoar Presbyterian Church for several years.  She was the children’s Music Director for several years and loved singing and enjoyed listening to her children perform.

     In 1985, they retired into George where they had built a new home.

     Pauline was active in various groups throughout her life including the Loyal Women’s Circle at Zoar and the American Legion Auxiliary in Little Rock and George for 50+ years.

     She especially loved to go fishing.  Many fishing vacations were spent at a resort at Nest Lake and many days after retirement were spent catching various local fish species at Lake Okoboji and Spirit Lake.  Raising flowers, gardening when on the farm, scrapbooking, bowling at the George Bowling Alley after retirement and spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were also some of her life’s joys.  Several rides were taken to the Lakes region at Okoboji just to enjoy the view.

     On Friday May 27, 2022; Pauline’s journey on earth ended at the age of 91 years and 9 months.

     She is survived by her husband Clarence, children Jerry (MarJean) Stubbe of Rock Rapids, Iowa; Paul (Kay) Stubbe of Spirit Lake, Iowa; Marcia Stubbe of Cedar Rapids, Iowa and Klarice (James) Rypkema of George, Iowa.  Six grandchildren Amy (Dave) Jans, Kristi (Shawn) Sanger, Heather (Joe) Poepping, Brad (Ashley) Rypkema, Brian Rypkema and special friend (Melissa), Jason (Olivia) Rypkema, and 12 great-grandchildren.

     She was preceded in death by her parents, 2 sisters Phyllis VanGelder and Loyce Bossard, an infant sister and several brother-in-laws and sister-in-laws.
