Alma Huber was born February 20, 1911 to Christian J. and Lydia (Hoffman) Huber at Hosmer, S.D.

She was united in marriage to Gottfried Melhoff, November 24, 1932. They had two children, a son and a daughter. They lived in Hosmer until 1948 when they moved to Miller and ran Melhoff Super Value for many years. Gottfried died October 15, 1963.

She married Elnathan Pawlovich June 26, 1981. He died November 29, 2002.

She was involved in many church and community activities and was a member of the V.F.W. Auxiliary.

She was known for her faithfulness, kindness and sense of humor. She was a wonderful mother and grandmother and enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Survivors include a daughter, Loranda Lumby of Pierre; three brothers, Rupert Huber of Mill Creek, Wash., Emil Huber of Santa Rosa, Calif., and Don Huber of Roseville, Calif.; five grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild.

She was preceded in death by her parents; two husbands; a son, Raymond; and nine brothers.
* Alma listed on SSDI as WULFF - she married and divorced (?) Marcus Wulff before marrying Pawlovich. This doesn't make sense.   csr
