Bartlem Dies in Bay Hospital
Dean William Bartlem, 33, local leader, died yesterday morning in Stanford Hospital, San Francisco, where he had gone several weeks ago for the second time to undergo radiation treatments.
Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Tuesday in the F. D. Sweet and Son mortuary here with the Rev. Richard Walsh officiating. Burial will be in the Paradise Cemetery [sic].
He had been Glenn county representative for California Dairy Breeders, Inc. of Davis since 1952 and had been active in civic affairs. Only about a week before he left for his final visit to the hospital he had been installed as president of the Orland Kiwanis Club. He was also past president of the Glenn County Guernsey Cattle Club and a member of the Farm Bureau, American Legion and Federated Church.
He had bought a ranch west of Orland and had built a home there for himself and family doing almost all the work himself with some volunteer help from other members of the Kiwanis Club.
Surviving him are his wife, Thelda and their children, Todd, Burdean and Blaine, of Orland; his mother, Mrs. C. J. Bartlem, Davis, and two sisters, Miss June Bartlem, a Navy nurse, Washington, D.C., and Mrs. Roy Lynch of Lodi.
Bartlem was born Feb. 16, 1925 at Alameda and spent his early years in Davis. He graduated from the schools there and from University of California at Davis in 1948, with time out between high school and college for three years service in the Navy during World War II. He was later recalled for duty for two years during the War in Korea.
The family has asked that in lieu of flowers any remembrances take the form of contributions to the American Cancer Society. - Transcribed by E.
