Cloris Lucille Hupfeld was born October 22, 1932 at Marshalltown, IA, to Herbert and Elna Brucklacker Wolken.  She was raised in Dunbar and Dillon, IA, and graduated from Dunbar High School.  On December 15, 1957 she married Melvin Hupfeld at the Dillon Lutheran Church.  Cloris and Melvin farmed for twenty six years near Dysart.  After retiring from farming the couple managed mobile home parks in Oklahoma and Minnesota. 

Cloris enjoyed simple things.  She loved flower gardening, feeding and watching birds and squirrels, puzzles, playing cards and socializing with friends to name a few.  Spontaneous road trips to casinos, wineries, greenhouses and garden centers were always a favorite of hers as well.  However, her family was the most important aspect of her life.

She was preceded in death by a stillborn child from a previous marriage, her parents, brother, Stan Wolken and son, John Hupfeld.
Memorials may be directed to St. Luke’s Hospice and Trinity Lutheran Church.
