Death of Mrs. Goodale

Mrs. Lawson Goodale died at her home in Bristol Thursday morning June 15, after an illness of less than a week. The Friday morning before her death she was about the house as usual. Her husband left her early to go away on business and some two hours later she was found in the yard unconscious by relatives. She was evidently suffering from a hemorrhage of the brain and never regained consciousness, although all that medical skill and nursing could was tried.

Mrs. Annabelle Goodale was born Keokuk, Iowa, April 13, 1869. She left her native state when but a small child and came to Illinois, where she was married to Lawson N. Goodale in March 1885. Mrs. Goodale was a good neighbor and a kind friend, ready to lend a helping hand when it was needed. One of her characteristics was her untiring industry, a trait that no doubt hastened the time of her departure. Her husband is the only immediate relative to mourn, though his family will feel the loss keenly as will the many friends.

The funeral was held from the Bristol Methodist church Sunday morning where a large assembly was gathered. Rev. J. Cooper Jones of Yorkville had charge assisted by Rev. Ernest Thomson of the Bristol church. Music was furnished by the choir of that church. Interment was in Oak Grove cemetery. The Yorkville Royal Neighbors, of which she was a member, attended the funeral in a body and assisted in the rites at the cemetery.

Arnold Dilly of Wrightstown Died Monday Near Lincoln--Lake Carlos Victim

The Wrightstown community was shocked Monday, July 5th when the word was passed around that Arnold Dilly, oldest son of Mrs. Fred Dilly, had met death at Lake Alexander at Lincoln, Minn. The deceased was 24 years of age and has been working with a road construction crew near Lincoln this summer. On July 5th, in company witr [sic] the family with whom he boarded and several other families, he went to Lake Alexander, a popular summer resort, to spend the day. About three o’clock in the afternoon the young people of the party, numbering fifteen, went into the lake bathing. In the lake near deep water are two posts marked "danger" and Arnold got near this place and went down. His companions immediately called for help and the proprietor of the Lincoln hotel on the shore of the lake, taking his boat and fish line rescued the body. A physician was immediately called from Motley but all attempts to resuscitate life proved futile. Owing to the small amount of water found in the lungs and to the fact that the body never arose to the surface the physician gave the verdict that death was due to heart failure. The body was brought to the undertaking parlor at Bertha and prepared for burial. Rev. Chas. Thiel of Moran was on the lake at the same time and just passed the young people and joked Arnold and was not fifty feet distant when the tragedy occurred. He came here at once and notified Rev. N. J. Kelley, an intimate friend of the Dilly family, and the two proceeded home to break the sad news to the mother. The family has had its share of sorrow the past year, Mr. Dilly passing away late in August leaving the wife and eight children. Funeral services will be held at the Christian Missionary Alliance Tabernacle Thursday afternoon at two o’clock.

DILLY FUNERAL

The funeral services of Arnold Dilly, an account of whose accidental drowning at Lake Shaminau, near Lincoln, on July 5th, was given last week, were held at the Christian and Missionary. Alliance Tabernacle at two o'clock Thursday afternoon, that edifice being capaple [sic] of holding but a fractional part of those coming to pay their last respects to the unfortunate young man. A male quartette, consisting of Arlan Wilde, Harry Main, Renold and Kenneth Aldrich, rendered several selections, with Miss Mildred Wilde presiding at the church organ. Rev. Chas. Thiel of Morgan, who was a member of the picinic [sic] party with whom Arnold went July 5th, related the circumstances pertaining to his drowning. Rev. N. J. Kelley preached the funeral sermon. The deceased was born in Iowa at Mound, and was 24 years and 5 days of age. He had lived the greater part of his life in this locality. Several years ago he was converted at an Alliance Camp Meeting held here, and was a young man of sterling character and popular with his fellow companions and a good, helpful son to his widowed mother, who with four sisters and three brothers are left to mourn his untimely death. Less than a month ago, he took out a $1000 accidental insurance policy with the Modern Woodmen for her benefit in case of accidental death. Interment was made in the local cemetery, by the side of his father who passed away on August 22 of last year. The sympathy of all goes out to the sorrowing ones left.

MRS. HENRY C. WITTMER DIED LAST SATURDAY

Residents of Lake Benton and vicinity were greatly saddened on Saturday last to learn that Mrs. Henry C. Wittmer had passed away at the hospital in Pender, Nebraska, where she had been taken on becoming seriously ill at the John Wittmer home at Rosalie, Nebraska sometime before.

Mr. and Mrs. Wittmer and family left Lake Benton about a month ago intending to visit a short time at Rosalie and then go on to Anaheim, California to visit at the Jake Wittmer home and with a view of settling at some point in California. When they arrived at the John Wittmer home at Rosalie, Mrs. Wittmer was taken ill and was unable to continue on the journey.

We are not informed as to the nature of her ailment. Friends have been informed that interment was to be at Cresco, Iowa where relatives are resting, on February 19th, Thursday of this week.

Mrs. Wittmer was a faithful Christian and has devoted many years of earnest work for her Master's cause and a great many friends and acquaintances have testified in glowing terms of the fruits of her labors. She was a faithful wife and although not blessed with children of her own, she had been all that a natural mother could be to three orphaned children whose lives have been enriched by her kind watchfulness and tender solicitude. One son by adoption, of tender years, and a daughter by adoption, who is just budding into young womanhood will greatly miss a mother's care and protection.

The husband and family have the deepest sympathy of a host of friends in their great affliction.

KILLED BY TRAIN

Richard Hindt Struck by Train and Died From Injuries - Companion Killed Instantly

The community was shocked last Friday to receive the sad news of the death of Richard F. Hindt who with a friend was killed by a Great Northern Passenger train Friday morning the 6th at Doran, a small station seven miles south of Breckenridge, Minn. Word was received in a telegram to Arthur Hindt a brother in this city from a sister at whose home Richard was visiting. He had gone to Minnesota to look after the threshing on his land and on Thursday, with Herman Olthoff, drove to a nearby town to take in a fair and in returning home at about 1 a.m. drove upon the tracks directly in front of the train which struck their buggy killing Olthoff outright and injuring Mr. Hindt so badly that he died one hour and a half after the accident. The buggy was totally demolished but the horses uninjured. The newspaper dispatches state that it is hard to understand how such an accident could occur in the manner it did as from the scene of the accident the approach of a train from either direction can be seen for miles.

The deceased was 38 years of age and a native of Germany. He leaves to mourn his untimely death a father, mother, wife, and six children the eldest child being twelve years old and youngest a babe of only eleven months. Mr. Hindt was an honest, upright and hard working man and his friends were without number. He was a member of the local K. of P. lodge and the Modern Woodsmen, and the services were conducted under the auspices of the former. The funeral was held Sunday morning at the M.E. church and was attended by a large number of sympathizing friends.

Arvo Jarvi

Arvo V. Jarvi, 86, of Crookston, Minnesota, died early Sunday morning, May 28, 2006, in the Riverview Health Care Center in Crookston. Arvo was born in Floodwood, Minnesota on April 3, 1920, the son of Arvid and Tekla (Poutinen) Jarvi. He grew up in Floodwood and received his education there. He was first employed as a lumberjack in the Floodwood area; then worked for the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) at Gooseberry Falls, Minnesota for a short time; and next spent several years working for the Great Northern Railroad. Arvo then moved to Glenwood, Minnesota to attend welding school. After completing his training he went on to California to work as a welder in the Kaiser Shipyards, helping with the war effort. He returned to Minnesota in 1949 after the death of his father, and settled in Crookston. Arvo once again went to work for the Great Northern Railroad. On December 16, 1952 he was united in marriage to Helen Sophie Olson at Cour d'Alene, Idaho, and the couple made their home in Crookston. Whenever Arvo's work as a heavy equipment operator called for him to travel Helen would often accompany him. In 1982 he retired from what had become known as the Burlington Northern Railroad. Very sadly, Helen passed away on January 25th of this year, after a lengthy illness. Arvo was a longtime member of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Crookston, and had been a member of Crookston Eagles Aerie #873 for over forty years. He will be remembered for his kind, friendly nature and his warm smile. He was a hard-worker all his life, and if anyone needed help he was the first one there with a helping hand. Arvo will be very loving remembered by his family and many friends.

Left to mourn his passing is a step-daughter, Fern Olson Jones of Fruitland, ID; and several nieces, nephews, and other relatives. Besides his beloved wife, Helen, Arvo was preceded in death by his parents; three brothers, Einar, Hugo, and Ralph Jarvi; and a sister, Edith Mattson. May God bless Arvo's memory.

Shirley Ann Willemssen, 73

Burial will be at Foxhome Community Cemetery.

Shirley Ann King was born in rural Rothsay, Minn., May 22, 1936. Shortly after, her family packed up and moved to California where she lived the first nine years of her life. In 1945, they made their way back to Minnesota and took up residence in Foxhome, where she attended school. Merlyn DeFries won her heart, and they were joined in marriage June 30, 1952.

The door was always open, the coffeepot was always on, food was always cooking, mouths were always fed and the phone was always ringing to see what was on the menu. Hours and hours were spent visiting with her family and friends that she cherished so much. Her philosophy of life was “come one, come all” and everyone was always welcome, even if it was to give them a "little hell."

FORTY-NINER CALLED BY DEATH

LIVED IN EAST ST. CLOUD FOR 25 YEARS—FORMER BENTON COUNTY OFFICIAL.

FOLLOWED MASS OF HUMANITY WESTWARD DURING THE GOLD CRAZE.

(From Friday's Daily.)

With the death of Hugh Mulligan, for 25 years a resident of East St. Cloud, passed another of the "forty-niners" who experienced the rugged life of far western pioneers in their quest of gold when the first finds were made in California.

Mr. Mulligan was born in Ireland in 1828. He came to America when a youth in his teens, settling in St. Paul. The lure of the western gold fields attracted the youth in 1849 and he was part of the wave of humanity that swept westward never to return. Upon his return from California, Mr. Mulligan took a homestead in Haven township, Sherburne county. He retained the homestead at the time of his death which occurred at the hospital Wednesday afternoon.

Benton County Officer

In 1890 and 1892, he was elected judge of probate for Benton county having moved to East St. Cloud [illegible] years ago.

Advanced age caused a general decline that culminated in his death Wednesday.

He is survived by one daughter, Miss Florence.

The funeral will be held at St. Patrick's church, Benton county, at 9:30 tomorrow morning. The funeral cortege will leave the residence at 8. Interment will be at the side of his wife, whose death occurred six years ago.

One of the saddest deaths which it has been the duty of this paper to record is that of William L. Payden, a High school boy, which took place Thursday evening of apendecitis [sic]. The lad had been sick only a short time, not more than two weeks, and a week ago yesterday was removed from the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Payden, 903 Seventh avenue south, to St. Raphael's hospital. There four days prior to his death two physicians performed an operation on him in the hope of saving his life. Apparently the operation was a complete success, for he rallied and was seemingly doing very well indeed until Wednesday he had a severe chill. This was followed by a second and he slowly sank until last evening at 7:15 he passed away.

William Payden was in the ninth grade of the high school and was a bright, sturdy youth with a promise of a bright future. He was nineteen years old July 26th, 1895, and was the pride of his parents, to whom his death comes as a crushing blow. Universally admired by his school mates his death has cast a gloom over the entire school.

The services opened at 10:30 a. m. when requiem high mass was said in the church. Father J. H. Mulvuney, local priest, was in charge of this service.

At 1 p. m. all stores, business houses and schools in the city closed so that everyone might be able to attend the services in the Community hall which began at 1:30 p. m.

O. M. Johnson, president of the Sheldon Commercial club, which arranged the memorial services, presided at the afternoon ceremony.

Judge McKenna paid particular attention to the work of Mr. Pierce as a lawyer and a friend. The judge knew Mr. Pierce for many years, he declared, and had an intimate acquaintanceship with the late lawyer.

Mr. Harper discussed characteristics which made Mr. Pierce one of the outstanding businessmen of the state. He paid a tribute to the memory of the dead man from the residents of Enderlin and Ransom county.

Dr. Aylen, a friend of the late "leader of Sheldon," dwelth briefly on the qualities of Mr. Pierce which made him a leader of men and which earned for him his position in the eyes of his multitude of friends.

Mr. Hanna dealt particularly with traits of character which Mr. Pierce exhibited in numerous trying situations. His recounting of incidents in the life of the Sheldon banker-lawyer, summed up in the closing of his talk, showed in an outstanding manner "that Ed Pierce, as I knew him, was a kind husband, a splendid neighbor, wise counsellor, a business man of integrity, and a loyal, true friend."

Obituary

Geo. J. Smidt, Deceased

Geo. J. Smidt died at his home on Eleventh St. last Wednesday night, shortly before midnight. Mr. Smidt had been in ill health for some time, brought on by his advanced years, which was the cause of his death.

The deceased was born at Rorichum, East Friesland, Germany on March 8, 1839. He came to this country in 1856, when a boy of seventeen years. In 1866 he was married to Taalka Kruger, at Forreston, Ill. After a number of years residence there they came to Sheldon in 1891, settling on a farm near here where they were engaged in farming for eighteen years. He came to Sheldon to make his home in 1909, and the last ten years of his life had been spent in this city. Mrs. Smidt died Jan. 25, 1918.

They were the parents of ten children, five sons and five daughters, of which nine still survive their father's death. One daughter, Charlotte, died in 1897, at the age of fifteen years.

All of his children were present at the funeral services which were held at 1:30 Saturday afternoon from his late home on Eleventh St. The services were conducted by Rev. F. Sauerbrey of the German Lutheran church of Sheldon. This was in accordance with a special wish of Mr. Smidt, as the boyhood homes of Rev. Sauerbrey and the deceased were in the same locality in Germany and the two were most intimate friends. Interment was made in the family lot at Ashton, where his wife and daughter are buried.

The deepest sympathy is extended to the children in their bereavement.

Glenn Smith, Professor Emeritus Of History, Dies At 75

Glenn Smith, Professor Emeritus of History, 75, died Friday, Jan. 30, in Texas. He was born May 3, 1922, in Sheldon, Iowa. He earned degrees from Sheldon Junior College, Iowa State College, Central College of Pella, Iowa, and the University of Iowa between 1939 and 1951. He served in the U.S. Army from 1942 to 1946 in the Pacific Theatre, and was awarded the Purple Heart.

He married Ruth Nesheim in 1948. From 1951 to 1958 he worked as a laboratory chemist for Great Lakes Pipeline Co. In 1958 he served as a Congressional Administrative Assistant for Quentin Burdick, then a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. In 1959 he worked as an instructor in Social Sciences for the Lewiston Division of the University of Idaho.

He came to the University in 1962, attracted by the papers of the late Senator William Langer, which had been donated to the Chester Fritz Library. They served as the base for his dissertation. In 1964 he was named director of the Red River Historical Society Library and Archives (now the Elwyn B. Robinson Department of Special Collections) at the Chester Fritz Library. He taught and wrote military history, and co-wrote "Citizens as Soldiers: A History of the North Dakota National Guard," with Jerry Cooper. He briefly served as Chair of the History Department and as Associate Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.

"Glenn Smith and I came to the History Department together in the fall of 1962, he to teach American History, I to teach European History," said Gordon Iseminger, Professor of History. "Glenn was my senior in years, but even more my senior in other ways. He brought with him a wealth of experience, much of it from outside the academic world. I was fresh out of graduate school and, although prepared to teach, I lacked experience in community and academic affairs. What I valued most in Glenn during those early years was his advice and his calmness in dealing with issues I often found troubling or confusing. It seemed that nothing bothered or unnerved him. I learned a great deal from Glenn. I miss him." "Glenn Smith will be remembered as a wonderful lecturer who had complete mastery of his subject," said D. Jerome Tweton, Chester Fritz Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History. "His terrific storytelling ability kept a generation of student on the edge of their seats. Whenever I run into former history students, the first question, without exception, is 'How's Dr. Smith?' or, 'What do you hear from Dr. Smith?' He had an impact on students, without equal. He’s one teacher who won't quickly fade from the memories of students and colleagues." Dr. Smith retired in 1987. His wife, Ruth, also retired as an administrative secretary in the Psychology Department. They maintained homes in Texas and near Park Rapids, Minn. He is survived by Ruth; son Steven (Elaine), Rochester, Minn; daughters Susan (Steve) Carroll, LaBelle, Fla., Stacie (Clyde) Varnson, Grand Forks, and Sarah Smith, Grand Forks; and three grandchildren.

The family has requested that memorials be sent to the Special Collections Department of the Chester Fritz Library, Box 9000. -- Jan Orvik, Editor, with information from Gordon Iseminger and D. Jerome Tweton (both History), and the Grand Forks Herald.

Madeline Worley Dannen

Sept. 21, 1921 - Nov. 8, 2009

Madeline Worley Dannen of Corvallis died Sunday at Corvallis Manor after a long struggle with Alzheimer's disease. She was 88.

Madeline was born in Waukomis, Okla., to Lloyd and Ann Scott Worley. Her father was a rural mail carrier for the postal service. The family moved to Pixley, Calif., in 1935, when her father traded routes with another carrier. Her mother soon opened the Pixley Hotel.

After graduating from Tulare Union High School in 1939, Madeline attended Woodbury Business College on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, Calif.

In 1940, she met Eugene Dannen, a surveyor for the U.S. Soil Conservation Service, when he stayed at her mother's hotel. They married later that year. They made their first home in Santa Rosa, Calif.

During World War II, while her husband served as a U.S. Marine officer, Madeline helped the war effort by working for Concrete Ship Constructors in National City, Calif. She also continued her college studies.

In 1946, Eugene was hired as an assistant professor of soils at Oregon State College (now Oregon State University), and they moved to Corvallis.

Madeline tried to have children for many years, and she was thrilled when her two sons were born.

She returned to college as her sons grew. She graduated from OSU in 1965 with a bachelor of science degree in elementary education, and began teaching in the Corvallis schools. She taught third grade at Wilson Elementary School from 1965 to 1973, and at several other schools thereafter. She was a reading specialist, and enjoyed reading to children.

She earned a master's degree in education at OSU in 1970. She divorced that same year.

In 1978, she earned a real estate license, and changed careers. She worked for several Realtors, including Don Fisher and Company, and Jordan's Real Estate West.

Madeline especially enjoyed gardens and flower gardening, and was a member of the American Rhododendron Society. She was a private and shy person. She was not, she often said, "a joiner." She did, however, enjoy dancing, and square-danced with Spinning Antlers, and Levis and Lace.

She was on the boards of the Senior Citizen Foundation of Benton County, and the local chapter of the Oregon Retired Educators Association.

As her memories slipped away, she was cared for at home by her son Gene.

The happiest time of her life was when her children were young.

She is survived by her sons Gene and Scott of Corvallis. She was preceded in death by her brother, Robert.

At her request, no memorial service is planned. In lieu of flowers, please share a memory.

Melvin F (Whitey) Volkenant, 84, was born in Montrose, MN October 22, 1920 and passed away May 14, 2005.

Survived by wife Jan Thies Volkenant; children Barry and Susan Volkenant, and Laurel (Cesar) Martinez; grandchildren Michael, Jennifer, and Melissa Martinez; sisters Geraldine (John) Laakso, and Mryl Wright; brother Glenn (Barbara) Volkenant, and many nieces and nephews and extended family, who will miss him dearly.

Preceded in death by his first wife and mother of his children, Patricia Hibbard Volkenant, and parents Charles and Clara Weese Volkenant.

Mel, or Whitey, as he was known around Buffalo, was a lifelong resident of Wright County. After farming for a few years at the family homestead in Montrose, he purchased land from the Johnson's Lodge Resort on Lake Pulaski at the time when the island was still visible. The site was next to the 1850's trading post and included an original cobblestone road adjacent to the shore. He worked most of his career as a bricklayer, masonry foreman, and supervisor for Kraus Anderson of Minneapolis.

A faithful member of the Buffalo United Methodist Church, in his younger years he served on many committees and in other volunteer roles. He was a member of Civil Defense, and later was proud to be in the Wright Co. Sheriff's Reserve.

Whitey was an avid hunter of pheasants and ducks around Lake Mallardy in Montrose, and eagerly anticipated his annual trek to the deer camp near Aurora on the Range. Additional interests included flying his Aeronca during the 1950s.

Everyone who knew him as Mel, Melvin, or Whitey will miss his cheerful and often outrageous humor - he was a great jokester and prankster, even to the end, when his stick became part of his shtick.

Funeral services were held Tuesday, May 17 at 4:30 p.m. at the Buffalo United Methodist Church with visitation the evening before at Peterson Chapel. Organist was David Gaeth and soloist was David Coward. Pallbearers were Dan Laakso, Tim Dubois, Lloyd Link, Jim Nelson, Richard Evans, Bruce Freiberg.

GOTTLIEB L. WESTPHAL

Gottlieb L. Westphal was born in Leonardsville, Traverse County, Minnesota, December 7th, 1891, and was at the time of his death twenty-seven years of age and possessed of a common school education spending his boyhood and early manhood working on his father's farm. In the year 1915, owing to the advanced years and impaired health of his parents, he, together with his brother, Fred, took over the interest of his parents in the Westphal farm near Robbinsdale, Minnesota; and under written contract agreed to provide jointly with his brother for his aged parents. This duty he fulfilled to the letter until called by his country. He entered the United States Military Service February 26th, 1918. Shortly after his induction into the service he was assigned to Company D, 327th Infantry, United States National Army, which reached the battle front in France in June, 1918. From which time until the date of his death, he was engaged in active trench fighting. At the date of his death he was serving as one of the battalion scouts from his company.

He was killed in action on the evening of October 16th, 1918, on the Sommerance-St. Juvin Road. He was struck by a bullet in his left side, death resulting shortly after and was buried in the Argonne American Cemetery near the scene of his death. His remains were forwarded to his family by the War Department arriving early in September, 1921, and given a military funeral under the auspices of the Westphal American Legion Post No. 251, Robbinsdale, Minnesota, assisted by a detachment from Fort Snelling who escorted his remains to the German Methodist Cemetery in the Township of Greenwood, Hennepin County, Minnesota where they were interned in the family lot. He was unmarried and left him surviving his father Edward O. Westphal; his mother, Mrs. Edward O. Westphal; his brother, Fred W. Westphal, and four sisters, Mrs. Caroline Dunning, Mrs. Vernie Bauer, Emma Westphal, and Evelyn Westphal, besides uncles, aunts and cousins.

Gottlieb L. Westphal was of a modest, retiring and lovable disposition; conscientious, loyal to his comrades and faithful in the performance of his duties. He neither drank intoxicating liquors nor used tobacco in any form. In private life he exhibited none of the traits that would betray the spirit of the soldier. How well he discharged his duties as a soldier when called upon and the courage and the fortitude with which he met and discharged his duties in actual service the following extracts from his letters and the letters of his associates and officers will better set forth than an extended recitation or eulogy could possible do.

From the date of his induction into the service until the fateful night of October 16, 1918, when he made the supreme sacrifice, he was so occupied with his duties as a soldier that he had neither the time nor the opportunity to have a picture taken of himself in the uniform of United States soldier.

While others were cited and decorated for acts of heroism on the battlefield he was content to render service to his country well worthy commendation and emulation.

William Westphal, 77, counsel to ’74 Senate committee dies

By Neal St. Anthony

Star Tribune Staff Writer

William P. Westphal of Minneapolis, who as a counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1974 researched and proposed the rules of impeachment that would have been used against President Richard Nixon, died Wednesday at age 77 after a short illness.

"It was because of that work that he found Bill Clinton's impeachment so fascinating," said his son William Paul Westphal Jr. of Eagan. "He spent a lot of time watching C-SPAN in his last few years. He was extremely dedicated to his profession and public service."

The senior Westphal graduated from Roosevelt High School in south Minneapolis and the University of Minnesota, before serving as a lieutenant with the First Marine Division during World War II in the Pacific and China.

He graduated from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1947 and worked as a trial attorney for the former Great Northern Railroad for 8 1/2 years. He then practiced law with the firm of Ryan Kain Mangan Westphal & Kressel for a decade.

In 1966, Westphal joined the offices of the Minnesota Supreme Court as the state court administrator. He left for Washington, D.C., in 1971 to serve as chief counsel for the Senate Judiciary subcommittee and drafted legislation that increased the number of federal judges and increased the powers of U.S. magistrates within the federal judiciary. He later served as a staff attorney for the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The impeachment rules that he proposed were never put into practice; Nixon resigned before the Senate held a trial.

In 1979, Westphal was appointed U.S. trustee for Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota and South Dakota. Under the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 1978, he was charged with supervising a network of private trustees that he appointed in those states. He retired in 1987.

Westphal is survived by his wife of 52 years, Kathryn; daughters Stephanie Hutson of Woodward, Okla., and Julie Westphal of Minneapolis; sons William Paul Jr., Peter of St. Paul and James of Minneapolis; six grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

Services will be held at noon Monday at the Fort Snelling Memorial Chapel. Visitation will be held there at 11 a.m. Monday and from 4 to 6:30 p.m. today at the Washburn-McReavy Southeast Chapel, 200 Central Av. SR., Minneapolis.

Dorothy Emily Witty

(list of other information for this person)

Dorothy Brusven, 92, died at home in Bozeman in the early afternoon of Sunday, Aug. 12, 2007.

Dorothy was born at her parents' home in rural Larson, N.D., on March 2, 1915, the daughter of Frank and Tillie (Kleinschmidt) Witty. She attended country school and so loved those years of early learning that she counted it her loss when she was promoted directly from fourth to sixth grade.

Dorothy Witty and John Brusven were united in marriage on June 11, 1936, at the parsonage of the Rev. Aarthun in Lignite, N.D. Their first home was the Brusven farm.

In the seasonal employ of Roy Bonsness and with two sons, the scale house of the Domrese coal mine served as a temporary winter home.

The family rented and moved onto the Jake Schouten farm, in the neighborhood of their own, in 1942. To be closer to school, they bought the Clarence Grindy place and settled on the outskirts of Columbus. There they built a new home in 1954 which remained Dorothy's official residence up to the present.

In 1990 and out of concern for John's health, Dorothy and "Johnny" moved in with their son, Lavern, in Bozeman. With John's death on Oct. 27, 1990, Dorothy's 'temporary' move to Bozeman became more permanent.

She remained a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Columbus. She was active in the congregational life of sister churches in Bozeman, as well as a treasured person at the Bozeman Senior Center.

She was a regular in the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), and she was a valued supporter and "guest worker" for local Sons of Norway events and activities, from baking lefse and Norse pastries and learning the folk stitching and art forms of Hardanger and Rosmaling.

Because she cared and always conveyed genuine interest and concern, she made friends easily and had a knack for finding North Dakota connections when meeting new people.

Dorothy was a faithful, loving wife, mother and caregiver to an extended family and friends.

She is survived by her three children: Merlyn (Glenna) of Genesee, Idaho, Lavern of Bozeman and Luanna Peters of Sausalito, Calif.; three grandchildren: Laura (Terry) Helms of Pitkin, Colo., Marcie (Gary) Gonser of Castle Rock, Wash., and Paul (Annette) Brusven of Moscow, Idaho; eight great-grandchildren: Hayden, Cheyanne, Zachary and Jamie Van Dyke, Nathan and Erica Gonser and Tessa and Cole Brusven.
