Krubsack, Joseph D. (Rev.) pastor of Christ's Evangelical Lutheran Church at Eagle River, was born in Dodge County, Wis., March 18, 1888, son of David and Anne (WAGNER) KRUBSACK, the parents being natives of Wisconsin of German ancestry. The mother is now deceased, while the father is still living and is a farmer at Embarrass, Wis. The subject of this sketch acquired his early education in public and parochial schools in Dodge County. He then entered the Northwestern College at Watertown, Wis., from which he was graduated with the class of 1911. His theological education was obtained in the Lutheran Seminary at Wauwatosa, Wis., and he was graduated there in 1914, being ordained in the Lutheran ministry in September, that year. His first charge was at Osceola, Wis., where, however, he remained only two months, at the end of that time going to Amery, Wis., where he had a charge until Thanksgiving Day, 1915. He was then transferred to Mattoon, Wis., where he made a longer stay, remaining until May, 1920, when he came to Eagle River, to take charge of Christ's Evangelical Lutheran Church. He has since built up the congregation to about 200 souls, with about 145 communicants, and also has preaching stations at Three Lakes, Conover, State Line and Tamarack, serving those places as time and opportunity permit. Mr. KRUBSACK was married at Los Angeles, Calif., Nov. 12, 1914, to Malita HILGENDORF, who was born at Juneau, Wis. He and his wife are the parents of three children: Edward, born Aug. 24, 1915; Dorothy, born Oct. 23, 1916, and Eleanore, born March 17, 1920
