Dorothy L. (Poppe) (Wobken) Clausen, 97

January 14, 1921 ~ March 16, 2018

Dorothy was born on January 14, 1921 at Creighton, NE to Henry and Emma (Zobel) Poppe.

She returned to the West Point/Hooper/Scribner area and later lived with the Fred and Anna Von Seggern family until her marriage to Irvin Wobken on June 30, 1941.

Irvin and Dorothy were blessed with three children.

Sadly, Irvin died March 22, 1962 (aged 46).

Dorothy lived as a widow until March 12, 1976, when she married Hans Clausen, another widower. She loved his children as her own. Hans died January 24, 2000 (aged 97), and is buried in Fremont, Nebraska.

She was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church (Cuming County Line) in Scribner and later First Lutheran Church in Fremont where she enjoyed the fellowship of the Solo’s group.

Dorothy spent much of her life as a homemaker and working various jobs. She enjoyed sewing, tending to her flowers, gardening, handiwork, and playing cards. She loved to bake and visitors were always welcomed to her home with a cup of coffee and a cookie. Most of all, she loved to spend time with her family and enjoyed attending the grandchildren’s activities. Her faith in God made her a stronger person and she was a wonderful example to everyone who knew her.
