Steven Staub — Mazeppa
MAZEPPA — The funeral for Steven Staub will be at 1 p.m. Tuesday at Grace Lutheran Church in Oronoco, with the Rev. Paul Baldauf officiating. Burial will be in Pine Island Cemetery.
Mr. Staub, 47, of Mazeppa, died Thursday (May 31, 2007), as a result of a trench cave-in farm accident.
Steven John Staub was born Dec. 29, 1959, in Rochester. He graduated from Mazeppa High School in 1979. He farmed in the Mazeppa area with his family, and on June 7, 1980, married Nancy Klingsporn in Oronoco. Following their marriage the couple continued farming. He was a member of Grace Lutheran Church and a past member of FFA and Poplar Grove Lutheran Church in rural Pine Island. He loved to restore tractors and was known as a "cobbler and tinkerer" who could fix almost anything. He was especially looking forward to the arrival of his first grandchild in August. An organ and tissue donor, his legacy will live on in other people who will benefit from his "gift of life."
Survivors include his wife; two daughters, Jessica (Aaron) Rude of Zumbrota and Kayla Staub of Red Wing; a son, Joshua of Mazeppa; his mother and stepfather, Ruth (Harold) VandeWeerd of Mazeppa; two brothers, Richard (Pam) and Daniel (Ginger), both of Mazeppa; a sister, Shirley (Jim) Perrotti of Mazeppa; his maternal grandmother, Sarah Reiland of Mazeppa; and numerous stepbrothers and stepsisters. He was preceded in death by his father, his paternal grandparents and his maternal grandfather.
Visitation will be from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. today at Mahn Family Funeral Home-Larson Chapel in Zumbrota, and an hour before the service Tuesday at the church.
