George R. Stroup 
June 25, 1906 - Jan. 27, 2009
SOUTH BEND - George R. Stroup, 102, passed away at 3:55 a.m. Tuesday, January 27, in the Sanctuary at St. Joseph's.  Mr. Stroup was born on June 25, 1906, in LaPorte County, and had resided in the Michiana [Berrien Co., MI] area his lifetime.  On July 27, 1924, in South Bend, he married the former Edna M. Milliken, who preceded him in death on June 11, 1996.  He is survived by two nieces, Linda Marlow of Boise, Idaho, and Vada Miller of South Bend.  Mr. Stroup retired in 1965 as owner of Stroup Welding and Spring Shop.  He started the business in 1939.  He was a wonderful man who loved to golf, fish and hunt.  He was a former Masonic Lodge member in New Carlisle, and a member of the Bowlers Country Club.  He also served 50 years on the board at Mount Pleasant Cemetery.

IN LOVING MEMORY
The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.

The family ask that all memorial contributions be made to the Lydick United Methodist Church, 26510 W. Edison Road, South Bend, IN 46628.  There will be no visitation or services at this time.  A memorial service will be held at a later date.  Burial took place at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 28, at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, South Bend.  The HANLEY & Sons "Southwest Chapel" Funeral Home handled arrangements and extend its deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers to the families of Mr. Stroup.
