    • Lloyd Arthur, Sr.

      Mrs. Millie Arthur received a telegram Tuesday apprising her of the death of her husband, Lloyd Arthur, Sr., who passed away Monday at the Veteran's hospital at Knoxville, Iowa, whre he had been for the past two years. Prior to being transferred to the hospital at Knoxville he spent a year in the Veterans hospital in Lincoln. He was afflicited with paralysis and heart trouble. Death came as a release from hopeless invalidism. His mother, Mrs, Nettie Arthur, who has been spending the winter in Fullerton, and his sister, Mrs. Henry Black of Fullerton, came to North Bend Tuesday when they learned of his death. Another sister, Mrs. Gertrude Bragdon of Robinson, Kansas, arrived Wednesday evening.

      Lloyd Keith Arthur, son of James and Nettie Arthur, was born on a farm near Webster on October 17, 1888. He grew to manhood there, moving to North Bend with his mother and brother Willis when they retired from the farm. He was employed here as a mechanic during the years he lived in North Bend.

      He was married on March 19, 1919, to Miss Millie Beznoska of North Bend. North Bend has been their home since that time except for two years they spent in Oklahoma. They were the parents of three children, Cpl. Duane Arthur, who is serving with the armed forces overseas, in North Ireland; Sgt. Lloyd Arthur, Jr. who is stationed at Savannah, Ga., and Miss Doris who is in High School and lives with her mother.

      Mr. Arthur was a veteran of the first World War. He was a member of a machine gun unit but did not go overseas. He was a member of the American Legion Post when there was an organization here.

      Funeral services conducted by Rev. Cottrell will be held Friday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock at the United Presbyterian church. Burial will be made in the Chuickshank cemetery near Webster.
