~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The death last Wednesday, April 15th, of Henry Lamby, brought great sorrow to his family and friends. Mr. Lamby passed away at 7:18 a.m. at his residence in the town of Moe, the cause of his death being bronchial pneumonia, which set in three weeks prior to his death.

Mr. Lamby was born May 20th 1863, at Kestila, Finland, and immigrated to America when 18 years of age, going to Calumet, Mich. On January 9, 1896, he was married to Thea Julin of the town of Moe. Shortly after their marriage, they moved to Ely, where they resided one year, returning to the town of Moe, where they purchased the farm, which has since been their home. Seven children, two boys and five girls, were born to this union. Surviving, besides the widow, are six children as follows: Lillian, Arthur, Agnes and Viola at home, Alyce and Ann of Minneapolis. Walter died at the age of ten months. He is also survived by two brothers and one sister in Finland.

Mr. Lamby was a Christian and an active church member. He has also been foreman of the church for a great many years. He was well liked by all who knew him and the large attendance at the funeral gave evidence of the high esteem in which he was held.

Funeral services were held Sunday, April 19th, at one p.m., at the residence and at 1:30 at the Finnish Evangelist Lutheran church in the Town of Moe, Rev. E. V. Niemi of Thompson, Minn., and Rev. Bestul of West Moe church officiating. The pallbearers were Matt Johnson, Charles Johnson, Jack Haabala, Abraham Hogan, Emil Kivisto and Andrew Esala.
