Obituary from the Iron River Pioneer, April 4, 1985:
Funeral services were held at the Davenport Presbyterian Church Friday, March 29 [1985] for Adolph A. Aho of Davenport. He was 77.
Mr. Aho was born March 7, 1908 in Brule to Henry Aho and the former Sandra Laulaja, the fourth of 12 children. His parents immigrated from Finland in the early 1900s and homesteaded on a small farm near Brule.
His first job was as a clerk in a cooperative store in Brule. He worked there for 12 years as clerk, truck driver and then office manager. He then managed another cooperative store for about a year, returning to work in the Brule co-op. During World War II, he served in the U.S. Army. Following his discharge when the war ended, he was hired by Bayfield Electric Co-op of Iron River. He worked there for 18 years as office manager. He hired his future wife Katherine {Knapp} there as a cashier. They were married Nov. 11, 1950 in Minneapolis. During his years in Iron River, he served as volunteer ambulance driver, volunteer fireman and as a member of the Iron River town board.
In 1963, the family moved to Davenport when he was hired as office manager for Lincoln Electric where he worked until his retirement in 1977. In 1979, he and Katherine moved to Minneapolis, then to Walla Walla, and returned to Davenport in 1983. He died Wednesday, March 27 [1985], in Davenport.
He is survived by his wife Katherine; his son Rod and his wife Nancy and their children Lara and Steven of Walla Walla, son Larry of Davenport; daughter Marilyn Robinson and her husband Doug and their daughter Aryn of Mercer Island, WA; brothers Arthur of Superior and Herbert of Brule; sisters Ellen Johnson of Maple and Jean Siegel of Minneapolis; numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by one brother and six sisters.
He was a member of Davenport Presbyterian Curch where he served as Elder from 1966-71; Clinton S. Brown Legion Post, Davenport; and was a charter member of the Iron River Lions club. Funeral services were led by Rev. Jeff Callender of the Davenport Presbyterian Church, with Rod Aho as organist, Sara Jane Johnson accompanist, and Carla Boleneous, soloist. Pall bearers included Dave Harrison, Paul Hanes, Everett Boleneus, Gordon Bonser, Frank Campbell and Boyd Ressel. Remembrances may be made to Davenport Memorial Hall.
