Attend Funeral Of Brother-in-law At Eugene
Mr. and Mrs. Donald Larsen returned home late Saturday night from Eugene, Ore., having
attended the funeral of their brother-in-law, Melvin Johnson, who drowned Tuesday morning
while working in the Mill Pond for Fall Creek Lumber Co. The wife of the deceased is the
former Betty Jean Meyers of Payette, who had just returned from the hospital Friday
evening before his death, having given birth to a 3 lb. 8 1/2 ounce premature baby boy.
Upon receiving word Tuesday morning Mr. and Mrs. Donald Larsen, accompanied by Mrs.
Florence Meyers, left for Eugene to be with Mrs. Johnson. Mrs. Meyers will return home
later in the week. Mrs. Johnson is Mrs. Meyers' daughter and a sister of Mrs.
Graveside services were held at the New Plymouth cemetery Monday, December 29, at 9:30
a.m. by Father Nicholas Walsh.
Mrs. Larsen reports also that the small baby boy is doing as well as can be expected and
will remain in the incubator for some time yet.
