Frank Orin St. Lawrence

d. September 17, 2023

Frank Orin St. Lawrence was born September 5, 1946, and went home to be with His Savior, Jesus Christ, on September 17, 2023, at the age of 77. Frank, the first-born child of George and Martha (Kramer) St. Lawrence, was born in White Salmon, Washington. In the early 50’s, the St. Lawrence family moved to Minnesota, where Frank lived for most of his life. Frank graduated from Stewartville High School in Stewartville, Minnesota, attended Pillsbury College in Owatonna, Minnesota and graduated from the Minneapolis School of Business. He served 3 years in the U.S. Army receiving medals of honor for service in linguistics in South Korea. Frank began a 30-year career with Cargill, Inc. in Minneapolis, as an accountant before moving into Cargill’s salt department where he became a leading salesman, valued greatly by both the company and his clients. His work took him the Rochester, New York for four years before returning to Minnesota where he lived before retiring from Cargill. Frank met the love of his life, Kathy Rubey, in Minneapolis, Minnesota and they were married on 04/10/1976. They thoroughly enjoyed each other’s company and shared their lives completely in work, hobbies, traveling and faith. In 2015, Frank and Kathy moved to Fairhope, Alabama and enjoyed their retirement, establishing a new home, making new friends, and finding a new church. 3 Circle Church became a very important part of their lives and their growth in faith. Frank’s sense of humor, positive outlook on life, friendly spirit and willingness to serve will be greatly missed. His work with Habitat for Humanity and Feed My Starving Children brought great joy to Frank as well as the recipients of his labor. Frank always had a way of making people comfortable in his presence, especially children, which his numerous nieces and nephews enjoyed and remember fondly. Frank is preceded in death by his parents, Geroge and Martha St. Lawrence and sister Janice Kay St. Lawrence. Frank is survived by his wife Kathy, brothers David (Judy) of Powell Butte, Oregon; Larry (Linda) of Great Falls, Montana; and Dennis (Marilyn) of Chariton, Iowa. He is also survived by brothers-in-law, Robert Rubey (Sharon) of Sleepy Eye, Minnesota; David Rubey (Judy) of Sleepy Eye, Minnesota and sister-in-law Mary Bertrand (Lynn) of Annandale, Minnesota and by many nieces and nephews. Frank trusted Christ as his personal Savior in his youth and grew in his faith throughout his life, finishing his race strong in the Lord and now is at rest in heaven, free from all struggles of health, sickness, sorrow and death.
