RUSHFORD, MN - Mildred "Mim" Dubbs, 99 years, 359 days, of Rushford, MN died on Wednesday, September 26, 2018, at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Home in Rushford.
Mim was born on October 2, 1918, in Bratsberg, MN to Oscar and Cora (Swenson) Fossen. She moved to Rushford as a small child and was a 1937 graduate of Rushford High School. Mim was united in marriage to Maynard "Minno" Dubbs on September 12, 1942, in Alabama while Minno was serving in the military. She and her husband moved to Waukesha, WI for a few years to work in the defense factories. They then moved back to the Rushford area to farm turkeys. As a couple they also managed the Rushford Legion Club, Ferndale Golf Course in Rushford and Westfield Golf Course in Winona, MN. Following that, they purchased and ran the Dubbs' Variety Store in Rushford for many years until their retirement. Mim was a member of the Rushford American Legion Auxiliary, Ferndale Golf Course and the Rushford Historical Society. She was a SEMCAC volunteer, an avid golfer, and enjoyed her many card clubs. Mim also enjoyed playing bingo, quilting, and making lefse.
She is survived by her daughter, Margo (Ron) Torkelson of Storden, MN; a granddaughter, Mia (Mike) Kruse; three grandsons: Tim (Stephanie) Torkelson, Joe (Jodi) Torkelson, and Tom (DuRanda) Torkelson; several great and great-great grandchildren; and by a very special friend, Ardith Brown.
Mim was preceded in death by her husband, three sisters and one brother.
There will be a funeral service for Mim at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 29, 2018, at the Rushford Lutheran Church in Rushford. Burial will be at the Rushford Lutheran Cemetery. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service at the church on Saturday.
The family prefers memorials directed to the Good Shepherd Lutheran Home.

I’m so sorry to hear of great aunt Mim’s passing-she is surely playing a heavenly round golf.
