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 Lake, Minnesota.

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 dialects.

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.
