Lois Carlberg Dies Saturday; Funeral Services for Arthur Youth Held Tuesday Afternoon
Arthur, IA – Lois Jane Carlberg, 19, passed away Saturday after being ill since last summer. Lois Carlberg was born at Galva, January 5, 1921. When she was two years old the family moved to the vicinity of Odebolt so that she has grown up in and around the Odebolt community. On Easter Sunday, April 21, 1935, she was baptized and joined the Kiron Baptist church of which she was a member until the time of her death. Lois was a member of the graduating class of 1938 of the Arthur High School. She was by nature very quiet and has always been a source of happiness to her parents. She was sincere and earnest in her Christian life. Last fall she began to fail slightly in health until more recently she was confined to her bed at times. In her lingering illness she was very patient and good. When it was apparent that she could not much longer remain on this earth she gave witness to the fact that she had left all in the hands of the Lord Jesus Christ and was satisfied and ready to go. After a quick goodbye she slipped away so peacefully when her Lord called her to the heavenly home on the morning of January 27, 1940.
She is survived by her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Carlberg of Arthur and her brother, Lindy, also her grandmother, Mrs. Augusta Carlberg of Galva, beside a great number of aunts, and uncles, twenty-eight cousins and many other relatives and friends. Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at the Kiron Church and burial was made in the Kiron cemetery. Rev. H. N. Johnson officiated. Minnie and Evelyn Johnson sang “Moment by Moment” and R. O. Lindskoog sang “An Evening Prayer” accompanied by Mrs. H. P. Turin.
