Obituary

Alice Duba Alice Duba, 78, of Platte, S.D., died Tuesday, June 17, 2003, at Platte Care Center . She was born Sept. 24, 1924, in Platte, to Albert and Jennie (Luten) DeBoer. She attended grade school in Platte and graduated from Platte High School in 1942. She also was employed at the K&K Store for her brother. On Sept. 27, 1944, she married Ralph Duba. Instead of the traditional home wedding, they were the first couple to be married at the original Christian Reformed Church in Platte. Together, they lived and farmed at the Duba home place until 1960, when they moved to their present home and farm closer to Platte. She was a devoted wife and mother, family members said. She was active in her church where she taught Sunday school, and was also active in the Gideons Ladies Auxiliary on the local and state level. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; a son-in-law, David Morrison; a brother, Ralph DeBoer; a sister and her husband, Jessie and Henry Bultsma; and a nephew, Keith Bultsma. Survivors include a son, David Duba (and wife, Kathy) of Tucumcari; one daughter, Dianne Morrison of Merrillville, Ind.; four grandchildren, Jason and Heather Duba and Malissa and Michael Morrison; and one sister, Martha Meek (and husband, Les) of Lakewood, Calif. Services will be 2 p.m. (CDT) today at the Living Word Fellowship Church in Platte. Burial will be in Platte City Cemetery. Memorials may be directed to the Gideons.
