O. N. McCloud Dies At Westbrook Hospital

Orin N. McCloud died at the Dr. Schmidt Memorial Hospital at Westbrook Saturday afternoon, October 6, [1956] after a long illness.

Orin McCloud, son of Leota Brown and Salathiel McCloud was born at Lohrville, Iowa on June 12, 1888. His boyhood and school days were spent on the farm of his parents where he remained until the time of his marriage. He was baptized and confirmed in the Christian Faith. His membership was transferred to the Methodist Church in Jeffers.

He was united in Marriage to Mamie Ness of Linn Grove, Iowa, on March 9, 1910 at Lohrville, Iowa. They made their home in Iowa until 1921 when they moved to Jeffers, Minnesota. They moved to the George Potter farm northeast of Jeffers for a few years and then moved in the old (not legible) farm where they lived for 12 years. In 1939 they bought (not legible) farm home west of Jeffers from J. W. Shaw, moving there in 1940.

Mr. McCloud was a kind husband and father and a good neighbor. He was a great lover of sports and never missed attending the local baseball games as long as his health prevailed. He was also interested in basketball and almost always attended the school games.

Mr. McCloud had been ill over a period of several years. He and Mrs. McCloud spent the winter of 1950 in Arizona in hopes that his illness would be somewhat reversed. Since their return in the spring of 1951 , Mr. McCloud has been in the hospital on numerous occasions.

Just prior to his death he had spent a few days in the Westbrook hospital. He had returned home on September 24. However his condition again became worse and on Friday afternoon he again entered the hospital where he died at 1:25,Saturday afternoon, at the age of 68 years, 3 months and 24 days.

Mr. & Mrs. McCloud had 5 children, all of whom with their mother survive. They are Leota (Mrs. Wayne Sorenson of Jeffers, Berniece (Mrs. Joseph Fjeseth) of Westbrook, Doris (Mrs. Lyle Storbeck of Jeffers), Audrey (Mrs. Pat Caldwell of Windom) and Russell of Jeffers. Also surviving is one nephew, Oran Ness of Storden, whom the McClouds reared from infancy. (Jeffers Review, Jeffers, MN, October 11, 1956)
