Solvrud, Oscar A. (23 MAR 1876 - 9 OCT 1937)

Oscar A. Solvrud, former resident of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.), died at his home at Stanley on Saturday evening after a lingering illness.

Mr. Solvrud was born in Scandinavia, Waupaca Co., Wis. on March 23, 1876.

Mr. Solvrud operated a meat market and was engaged in the cattle business here until the family moved to Stanley in 1932, where they have made their home since.

He is survived by his wife and one son, Montell, of Chicago, three sisters, Mrs. L.B. Smith, Waupaca, Mrs. Ella Swendson, St. Paul, Mrs. Clara Warren, Milwaukee, and one brother, Robert Solvrud of Nelsonville, Wis.
