In Memory of
Cherry Stubbs 1915-2004
Secretary, Northwest Branch U.S. Christian Commission
We say goodbye to a faithful friend………
Cherry C. Stubbs went home to be with her Lord on February 16,
2004 after a five-month struggle with cancer. She was 88 years
old and had been living the past year and a half at Covenant
Village retirement community after selling her home near Long
Cherry retired in 1973 after 32 years with the U.S. State
Department. Throughout her career, she had lived in 12
difference countries and had learned 6 languages and 12
Since her retirement, she had been actively involved in many
mission organizations and care ministries besides being
attentive to local, state, and national government proceedings
and world affairs.
The U.S. Christian Commission was one such organization in which
she took a special interest. She first took part in 1995 and in
1998 became a board member. She then assumed the role of
secretary in 1999 and continued to serve in this capacity until
her death. Her prayer and financial support has been a
tremendous encouragement to the organization. She took a special
interest in seeing the reprinting of several Civil War era
publications including the Army/Navy Hymn Book and the
devotional book entitled “Chaplet of Flowers”.
Two brothers, two sisters, and numerous friends and relatives
survive her. A memorial service was held on February 19, 2004 at
Maple Plain Community Church, Maple Plain, Minnesota.
