Justman, Marvin LeRoy (20 Jun. 1920 - 10 Apr. 1951)

Marvin LeRoy Justman, age 30, died at his home in Unity, Wisconsin Tuesday, April 10th, 1951 at 2:40 P.M., cause of death being diabetes and complications.

The funeral was held Friday, April 13, at Trinity Lutheran Church at 2 P.M. with Rev. Charles Witt of Marshfield officiating. The body lay in state at the Lulloff Funeral Home in Colby until 11:30 Friday morning when it was brought to the Lutheran Church where it remained until the funeral.

Marvin was born June 20, 1920 in the Town of Unity where he lived until the fall of 1947 when he moved with his parents to the Village of Unity, Wisconsin.

He attended the Maplewood school where he completed the grades and then attended Unity, Wis. High School, but because of ill health was forced to leave school before he completed his first year.

He did carpenter work for several years, but in 1949 he was compelled because of his health, to give that up also.

He became ill with diabetes at the age of three years, but due to the untiring efforts of his parents, who spared nothing for his welfare and health, he was brought through 27 years of boyhood and manhood. Marvin, who at an early age, had put his complete faith in the Lord he served, never complained. He was a faithful member of Trinity Lutheran Church, and was confirmed April 29, 1934 by the late Rev. J. A. Olson. He served as janitor in the church as long as his health permitted.

He was up and about the house until April 3rd from which time he was confined to his bed. He will be sadly missed by his parents, brothers, relatives and a host of friends. He is survived by his parents, one brother, Merlin of the Town of Unity, and a brother, Roy, of Marshfield.

Father I know Thy ways are just; although to me unknown, Oh grant me grace Thy love to trust and cry "Thy Will be done."

If Thou should hedge with thorns my path, should wealth and friends be gone, Still with a firm and lively Faith, I’ll cry "Thy Will be done."

Although Thy steps I can not see, Thy Sovereign right I’ll own, As instructed by Thy Grace, I’ll cry "Thy Will be done."

Pallbearers were Arlyn Edblom, Arthur Edblom Jr., Alvin Edblom, Ansel Messer and Charles Justman.

The ladies choir sang "We Shall Sleep, But Not Forever" and "No Tears in the Sky." Mrs. Walter Wieland accompanied on the organ.

Out of town persons attending the services included Mrs. Minnie Matteson, Milwaukee; Mr. and Mrs. Ed Domer, Mr. and Mrs. Howard Manthei and children, Mr. and Mrs. Schneider, Mrs. Geo.
