Mrs. John Wesley (Oneita) Wolfe, 67, and a resident of Lusk for 47 years, died unexpectedly in the Niobrara Memorial Hospital about 10:30 p.m. Saturday. She was apparently the victim of a heart attack.
Mrs. Wolfe had not been feeling well during the morning and was taken to the hospital, but serious difficulties were not expected by her family. She died while talking with a nurse.
Funeral services were being held from St. George's Episcopal Church this Wednesday afternoon. Arrangements were made by Peet Mortuary. The Rev. James Scott of St. George's Episcopal Church officiated.
Casketbearers were Al Taylor, David Lorenzen, Richard Lenz, Ed Boner, Bucky Barnette, Jim Griffith.
Burial was made in the Lusk Cemetery.
Mrs. Wolfe was born in Battle Creek, Nebr., to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Scott on July 3, 1898. She attended grade and high school there and attended Nebraska State College at Fremont. She taught school at Battle Creek and at Humphrey, Nebr., before going to work in a bank in Norfolk.
She came to Lusk in 1919 and took a position with the First National Bank of Lusk. On Sept. 9, 1922 she and John Wesley Wolfe were married in Denver.
During World War II Mrs. Wolfe was home service chairman for the Niobrara Chapter of the American Red Cross and as such she was in charge of helping servicemen to get home during emergencies.
Beside her husband, Mrs. Wolfe is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Leroy (Betty) Redfield of Seattle, Wash.; two sisters, Mrs. Roy Maxey of Los Angeles, Mrs. George Miller of Santa Rosa, Calif.; one brother, Ed T.
