ALVINA MAE HUP was born to Albert and Jennie (Korthals) Hoogeveen on December 12, 1932 in Steen, Minnesota. She was baptized at the Steen Reformed Church. Alvina attended school in Steen and graduated from Hills High School in Hills, Minnesota in 1950. On December 3, 1952 Alvina was united in marriage to John Hup Jr. at the Steen Reformed Church. The couple made their first home in Steen, Minnesota, where the young bride stayed when John left for the army just five months later. Upon his return from the Korean War two years later, the couple settled into a busy life on the farm. Together they worked the land and raised their three boys, Steve, Ken and Dave. In 1982, the couple moved to Luverne, Minnesota. Alvina was a homemaker, an active farm wife and also worked at the Luverne Community Hospital; first in house cleaning and later in the purchasing department. In addition, Alvina was a seamstress and made custom suits for Cook’s Clothing. She later worked at Papik Motors in Luverne with filing and delivering vehicles.
