Georgas, Arthur C. (10 FEB 1884 - 14 NOV 1924)

Arthur C. Georgas died at his home at Spencer last Friday after a short illness of heart trouble and was buried from the M. E. Church on Monday.

Arthur C. was the son of Mrs. Fredricka Georgas and was born in Dorchester, Clark County, Wis. country Feb. 10, 1884, and lived with the home folks until he reached man's estate.

For a number of years he worked in the general store owned by Wells and Chase, and was a great favorite with all who came in contact with him. Later he went to Hawkins and in 1913 moved to Spencer where he opened a furniture store and undertaking parlor, which he conducted up to the time of his death.

On Nov. 10, 1909, he was united in marriage to Miss Matilda Sedlack, a Dorchester young lady, and this union was blessed with 3 children, Dorothy, Elmer, and Isabelle, who with their mother survive him.

Besides there, he is survived by his aged mother, living in this village, and sister, Bertha Georgas of Colby.

Those of our Dorchester readers who knew Arthur will remember him as a fine upright man, well liked by all who had any business dealings with him.

Dorchester friends join us in offering condolence to the bereaved. Albert Mertz of Chicago, and Martin Mertz of Detroit, Mich., cousins of the deceased, were at Spencer to attend obsequies.
