THE WESTERN STAR, 19 October 1945
Obituary of NORINE HELEN McARTHUR
FORMER COLDWATER GIRL DIES IN COLORADO

Funeral services were held in the Presbyterian church in this city Tuesday afternoon of this week for Mrs. Howard McArthur, who passed away in Pueblo, Colo., last Sunday. She had been ill only about a month. Her death was caused by kidney hemorrhages which could not be checked. Her husband returned home only a few days before her death, after more than two years in Europe.

The services were in charge of the pastor, Rev. S. A. Fulton, who brought a comforting message. Mrs. Raymond Lohrding and Mrs. Claude Beeney sang "Good Night And Good Morning" and "When I Take My Vacation in Heaven," with Mrs. A. A. White as organist.

The pallbearers were Raymond Lohrding, Wm. Hackney, John Pepperd, August and Eddie Metzger and Ralph Deewall. Burial was in Crown Hill Cemetery.

Norine Helen Bird, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Bird, was born at Coldwater, Kans., January 17, 1925, and passed away at St. Mary's hospital in Pueblo, Colo., October 14, 1945, at the age of 20 years, 8 months and 27 days.

When she was 14 years of age she moved with her parents to Colorado and had made that state her home since. She was baptized in the Catholic faith.

On January 14, 1943, she was united in marriage with Sgt. Howard R. McArthur in San Angelo, Texas. Besides her husband, she is survived by one brother, Dale Bird, and her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Marvin Bird. One brother preceded her in death.

The sorrowing relatives have the sincere sympathy of all.
