Carlson, Arthur (13 JAN 1889 - 30 JAN 1947)
Arthur Carlson, an Owen (Clark Co., Wis.) businessman for 17 years, was laid to rest in the South Beaver Creek Cemetery at Melrose Tuesday afternoon. He had passed away a week ago today when stricken by a heart attack, while engaged in removing snow from the driveway of the Schmocker & Carlson service station in the city.
Funeral services were held in Owen Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. at Griebenow’s Funeral Home, with Rev. Borreson of Curtiss officiating, and that afternoon from the Church at Melrose, of which he had been a member for many years. These services were conducted by Rev. Assen.
He was born on Jan. 13, 1889 at Melrose, where he grew up into manhood and pursued the occupation of farming until 17 years ago, at which time he moved to Owen and has been successfully engaged ever since in business with his brother-in-law, Charles Schmocker. He was unmarried and made his home with his sister and family, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Schmocker.
Art, as he was commonly referred to by everyone that knew him, was a highly respected citizen. The possessor of a jovial spirit and radiant personality, he made friends quickly. Outdoor life was his favorite hobby. His success as an angler had earned him the distinction of being one of the best fishermen of the community.
Surviving him and sympathizing with his relatives in their sudden loss are two sisters, Mrs. Oliver Berger of Melrose, and Mrs. Charles (Clara) Schmocker, Owen, and a host of friends.
Pallbearers at the service were: Pete Madsen, J. P. Hansen, Chris Bacon, Jerry Van Huizen, John Bacon and John Warns.
