Death Claims H. H. Hanstad
Pioneer Vineland Township Farmer At Age of 72

Halfdan H. Hanstad, 72, pioneer Vineland Township, succumbed late Monday (February 28) at a local hospital to a long illness.

Funeral services will be held Thursday at 1:30 p.m. at the Hanstad farm home in Vineland Township and at two p.m. at the Sand Hill Lutheran church with the Rev. Louis Olson officiating. The body will lie in state from seven to nine p.m. Wednesday at the Stenshoel Funeral home here.
