Final rites for Mrs. Edward Vikturek are scheduled at 2 p.m. today

Funeral services will be held today at 2 p.m. for Mrs. Edward Vikturek, 66, in the First Methodist Church, Powell.

Mrs. Vikturek passed away the evening of January 18 in the Powell Memorial hospital of uremic poisoning. She had been hospitalized about one week.

The Rev. Lester W. Edgett of Cody will officiate at the services. Interment will be in the Crown Hill cemetery under the direction of the Easton Funeral Home. Mrs. Paul Clark will sing two solos, “Rock of Ages” and “Beautiful Isle of Somewhere” and will be accompanied by Mrs. Sheldon Glasgow.

Mrs. Vikturek was born Aug. 5, 1895, in McLeansboro, Ill. She was the eldest child of Arthur B. Campbell and Lulu May Hill Campbell, both of whom preceded her in death. She moved with her parents in 1910 to Wyoming where her father, an ordained Methodist minister, served churches in the Hyattville and Tensleep communities until 1913. At that time, the family moved to the Powell area. In 1915, she moved with her family to a homestead near Garland.

Before her marriage, Mrs. Campbell (transcriber note: should be ‘Miss Campbell’ or ‘Mrs. Vikturek’) served as postmistress in Garland and taught school in Hudson, Wyo., and the Pioneer school near Clark, Wyo.

She was married to Edward Vikturek March 7, 1921, at Deaver, Wyo. The couple resided on a farm near Plymouth, Iowa, until January of 1927 when they moved to Wyoming. Five children were born to this union, four of whom died in infancy.

Survivors include the husband, Edward Vikturek of Powell; her daughter, Mrs. Paul Miller of Powell; six brothers, Wm. Hill Campbell of Sheridan, Arlo B. Campbell of Richland, Wash., Orley Campbell and Goodsell Campbell of Valejo, Calif, Claude Campbell of San Leandro, Calif.; 10 grandchildren, Steven, Edward, Lois, Linda, Vincent, Arthur, Sharon, Charles, Joseph, and John Miller, all of Powell.
