Made available to The USGenWeb Archives by: Keith Elmund ~~ William Arthur Elmund 02 May 1886 - 02 Mar 1912 William Arthur Elmund Taken away as he stood on the very threshold of manhood and recently full of life and vigor, it would seem that the sudden summons was more than unheralded to so bright and promising a young man as William Arthur Elmund. He died at St. Barnabas hospital in Minneapolis Saturday March 2, where he had been brought about a week ago to be placed under medical care. It seems that he was taken down with pneumonia and this persistent attack was accompanied by hemorrhages, which we understand eventually caused his death although he received the very best of care and medical assistance at Barnabas. William Arthur was a son of Mr. and Mrs. John Elmund, who live about two miles north of Center City and who are very well known and much respected people in this community, and was born in Center City May 2, 1886. He was confirmed May 26, 1901 and was a good and conscientious young man, whom all respected. He leaves scores of young friends in Center City, who thought very highly of him. The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon, Rev. Eckman officiating, and the remains were laid to rest in Center City cemetery. He leaves to survive him, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Elmund; two brothers, Victor Wiberg and George Elmund; and a sister, Mrs. Clara Wiberg Graham of Seattle, Wash. His sudden demise has proven to be a hard blow to the Elmund family and the Press joins with their many friends here in expressing its kindly sympathy.
