Married Name1945As of 1945,her married name was Ringelstetter.
  • Pauline Ann Hutter was born on 17 October 1918 at Plain, Sauk, Wisconsin, also reported as 12 Oct 1918.
  • She was the daughter of Herman Anton Hutter and Mary Rose Volk.
  • Pauline Ann Hutter married Clement Herbert Ringelstetter, son of Michael Ringelstetter and Margaret Pfeiffer, in 1945.
  • Pauline Ann Hutter died on 1 October 2006 at age 87 Pauline Ann Ringelstetter joined the eternal parade of Saints on Sunday, October 1, 2006. She was born October 17, 1918. Her parents were Mary Volk Hutter and Herman Hutter. Pauline had one brother, Anthony, born in 1923 and one sister, Donna, born in 1940. In 1945 Pauline married Clem Ringelstetter and together they had seven children; twins, Judi and Joan, Nicholas, Richard, Rita, Ann and Carol. She has 19 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband (1972), and her brother. Pauline was best known as the woman who raised the largest family in the smallest house in Plain; a fact that truly did build character in her children and gave all of them a passion for protecting those of lesser means and acting and speaking for social change and justice. Concern for others along with Pauline's wild and wacky sense of humor and her contagious laughter are her legacies to all of us. Good food, good friends and good music were very important in Pauline's life. She loved to dance and sing. If there was music, her feet were dancing or her hands were clapping and her toes were tapping. It was a habit of hers to sing little songs and jingles about everything in life. Her love of music was passed to her children and manifests itself in her grandchildren. One of her many favorite songs, was "When the Saints Go Marching In". To her family, friends and the people whose lives she touched through her work at Hall's Pharmacy and Cenex Gas Station, it is indeed evident that Pauline is marching with those Saints today. A Celebration of Life Mass will be held on Thursday, October 5, 2006, at 11 a.m. at ST LUKE'S CATHOLIC CHURCH in Plain. Father Mike Resop will officiate with burial in the church cemetery. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, October 4, 2006, at ST. LUKE'S CATHOLIC CHURCH from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. and at the church from 10 a.m. until the time of Celebration on Thursday. In lieu of flowers, please do what Pauline would do; smile at strangers, write a letter to a friend, do lunch, send a card to cheer someone, make welcome the new person in your community, get to know your neighbors and sing and dance "til the cows come home".
