YOUNG -- Pastor Rufus Ludwig, 84, died Tuesday, June 27, 2006, in Tulsa, OK. He was born October 14, 1921, in Hoffman, MN, the oldest child of Pastor Rufus Philip Young and his wife, Anna Mohr Young. He attended Concordia Theological Seminary in Springfield, IL, and after graduation, was ordained a pastor in the Lutheran Church, Missouri Synod. His first pastoral call was to Pampa, TX, others were to: Burkburnett, TX; Littlefield, TX; Shawnee, OK; Okmulgee, OK; Guthrie, OK; and Perryton, TX. Pastor Young married Ruby Arlene Peiman, daughter of a fellow LCMS pastor, on June 13, 1950. They raised a happy and lively family of 4 children and were in turn blessed with 7 grandchildren, all of whom remember Grandma and Grandpa Young with much love and affection. In 1989, they retired to Tulsa and enjoyed an active life with family and friends until Ruby's death in 2002. After her death, Pastor Young moved to an apartment at Town Village, where he was an enthusiastic member of the community and made many new friends. His last professional work, which was very important to him, was as visitation pastor at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Tulsa. One of his great concerns was responsible citizenship, and he lived this commitment; many civic groups in Texas and Oklahoma benefited from his contributions of money, time, and energy. He was a devout and devoted pastor, a faithful and true husband and father, and a selfless friend to all, particularly the sick and needy. Pastor Young was preceded in death by his beloved wife; his parents; his sister, Esther Wilhelm; and his brother, Paul Young [...] The memorial service will be held at 1 p.m., Saturday, July 15, 2006, at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 8730 E. Skelly Dr., Tulsa, OK. Memorial gifts may be sent in his name to Good Shepherd Lutheran Church or to the charity or foundation of your choice. The family wishes to thank the staff members of St. John Hospice and of Senior Select for their loving care of Dad in his last months.
