Obituary

Pauline Loeb was born May 14, 1928 to Lorenz & Emma (Ternes) Loeb. Raleigh, ND. She was born & raised on the farm, attended school in Raleigh and Dakota Business College in Fargo. She married Bernard ‘Ben’ Deichert May 13, 1946 at St. Gertrudes Church south of Raleigh. In 1949 they moved to West Fargo. In 1951 she started her dance band, for 35 years playing clubs & weddings thru out North Dakota & Minnesota.

She played Guitar, Bass, Piano and Accordion. Did most vocals, and was an accomplished yodeler, winning top honors in San Diego & North Hollywood, in the early 60s. Her husband Ben who passed away July 8, 2001 was a great support for her talent and her drummer. She wrote words and music to many songs and recorded several locally and in Nashville. She always said I never attended a music school, but my Dad was a great self taught musician who taught a lot of what he knew, and oh how he loved Flats. He would have been really proud of my German Waltz in D Flat. In the 60s & 70s they also owned & operated the Seneca Inn by MeritCare. In the 80s The Shenandoah Supper Club in Davenport, ND. After retirement she entertained in nursing homes, sang in the funeral choir, volunteered at Hospice, visited home bound, and was a communion minister. She loved Pinochle, Minnesota Vikings and doing crafts. She was an excellent cook and loved it.

She is survived by her daughters & sons Paulette Deichert, Grafton, ND, Karen (Bill Rohrich) Harwood, ND, Bernie (Denise) Fargo, ND and Dion (Joy) Katy, TX. 17 grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren, 4 great great grandchildren, son-in-law Dennis Waggoner, sister Leona (Mike) Dirk Fargo, Sisters-in-Law Emma Loeb, Fanny Deichert, Maggie Deichert , all of Mandan, ND, MaryAnn Deichert Bismarck, ND. She was very proud of her children and grandchildren and their accomplishments and always on the lookout for that musical talent to take after her. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Ben, daughters Charlotte and Benita, sisters Regina (Jake Blotsky), Florence (Bert Bachmeier), Eva (Tony Kopp), Marie (Tony Dirk), Baby sister Pauline, Brothers Ed (Emily) Loeb and Peter (Katie) Loeb and Lorenz Loeb, Jr. and baby granddaughter Kayla Lund, and her much loved Maltese puppy (Keeta).

    I’m sorry to hear that Paula has passed away. I’ve only known her for a couple of years, since moving in the condo unit next to hers. First thing she did was to bake us a pecan pie..it was like a slice of heaven. She took a shine to Jeff and would make him liver/onions every now and then. She was always cooking up something to share. She was such a outgoing, funny, kind-hearted lady. She always had an interesting story to tell, not a dull moment with her around. She will be missed by many people. Prayers to your family.

    We are very sorry for your loss! I loved listening to them play and to hear her yodel was a real treat. I think the last time we watched them play was at the Mandan Moose Lodge and that was a very long time ago. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.
