SPOKANE Philip J. Arnzen, a retired Greencreek, Idaho, farmer, died Thursday of congestive heart failure at Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane. He was 74.

A native of Greencreek, he was born Oct. 25, 1917, to Frank H. and Mary Ann Nuxoll Arnzen. He received his schooling at Greencreek.

He married Clara Schaff at Greencreek on May 20, 1941. The couple farmed there until cancer forced his retirement and they moved to Cottonwood in 1977.

He was a communicant of St. Anthony's Church and the St. Anthony Society of Greencreek.

He is survived by his wife of Cottonwood; two daughters, Wilma Wassmuth of Greencreek and Linda Frei of Boise; eight sons: Michael Arnzen of Sam Rayburn, Texas; Chuck Arnzen of Grangeville; Greg Arnzen of Greencreek; Ron and Guy Arnzen of Lewiston; Miles Arnzen of Peck; Roger Arnzen of Ft. Rucker, Ala.; and Joe Arnzen of Nezperce; two sisters, Freda Terhaar of Greencreek and Regina Forsman of Lewiston; one brother, Urban (Shorty) Arnzen of Cottonwood; 20 grandchildren and five stepgrandchildren; and one great-grandchild. He was preceded in death by one son, Gary, one sister and five brothers.

Rosary will be recited Sunday at 7:00 p.m. at St. Anthony's Church in Greencreek. Funeral Mass will be celebrated Monday at 10:30 a.m., also at St. Anthony's Church with the Revs. Kenneth Arnzen and Joe Wood as concelebrants.
