Olaf Myhre Dies at 73; Rites Set
Olaf Myhre, 73, lifetime resident of Emmet county, died last night at Holy Family Hospital of a cerebral hemorrhage. He had been in poor health for the past six months.

Anderson and Mrs. H.R. Portmann, both of Estherville. His parents, five brother and two sisters preceded him in death.
