Pauline Spenst, 78, formerly of Langdon, ND, was ushered into the presence of her Lord on Monday, December 18, 2017, in Kingman, KS.

Pauline Blanche Ewert was born July 27, 1939, in Avon, SD, to Rev. Frank and Lillie (Richert) Ewert. During her childhood, she attended school in Avon, Omaha, NE, and graduated from Wolf Pointe High School in Wolf Pointe, MT. On August 4, 1957, Pauline married Arthur Spenst in Avon, SD. They made their home in Langdon, ND where they farmed and raised their family. Pauline enjoyed being in the kitchen, whether in her home or in the Dairyland that she and Art owned and operated. They also enjoyed serving customers at the curling club and courthouse cafes. She taught piano lessons to many students and will be remembered as an accomplished pianist. In 2015, Pauline and Art moved to Amarillo, TX and then settled in Wichita, KS in 2016.

Pauline loved cooking and baking for her family and friends. She also enjoyed gardening, canning, and especially fishing with Art. Christmas was Pauline’s favorite time of the year, and she loved sharing it with her family. She was a member of Emmanuel Evangelical Church in Langdon, ND.
