Mrs. Johnnie L. Casteel, postoffice clerk here since 1939, and formerly Miss Alma Weibert, received Monday morning the Government's notification that her husband, Lieut. Johnnie L. Casteel, had died in France on August 12th, one day after being seriously wounded in action. He was serving with a rank battalion, his organization having experienced considerable action against a stubborn enemy in the Battle for France.
The officer, who was Commissioned from Fort Knox, Ky., had met the Shattuck girl while both attended a Wichita, Kansas, business college and they were married July 27, 1942, in Wichita. His home town was Protection, Kansas.
Innumerable friends of the couple extend deepest sympathy to Mrs. Casteel upon the loss of her companion.
