Mrs. C. Morehouse Dies at Hot Springs Friday

Lusk friends were grieved to hear of the sudden death of Mrs. Clinton C. Morehouse, who died at the Sisters Hospital in Hot Springs, S. Dak. Friday, Feb. 15, at the age of 57.

Mr. and Mrs. Morehouse and family came to Lusk from Nebraska in 1943 and the past two or three years have been in Glendo and Igloo.

Mrs. Morehouse died from a blood clot which formed in one of her limbs. She was brought back to Lusk for burial.

Lillian May Sprague Morehouse, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Sprague, was born Feb. 3, 1895 at Peoria, Ill. On Feb. 3, 1917 (her 22nd birthday) she was married to Clinton C. Morehouse of Davenport, Ia. From that place they moved to Burton, Neb., where they made their home until nine years ago when they moved to Wyoming, locating in Lusk.

While living here she became a member of the Congregational Church, also joined the Daughters of the American Revolution and was active in a number of other organizations.

She is survived by her husband, Clinton, of Provo, S. Dak.; her four children, Mrs. Gene Lee of Riverton, Mrs. Leslie Schnorenberg of Lusk, Crawford and Sally Morehouse of Provo, S. Dak.; and five grandchildren, Sharon, Sandra, and Theresa Lee; Cindius and Rodney Schnorenberg; one sister, Mrs. George McQuarrie of Blair, Nebr., and a brother, Harry Sprague of Los Angeles, Calif.

Funeral services were conducted Sunday, Feb. 17, from the Peet Chapel with the Rev. Jacob Nein, pastor of the Congregational Church, officiating. Two solos, "Ave Maria" and "When We Come To The End of A Perfect Day" were sung by Mrs. James Ringer, accompanied by Mrs. Henry Wasserburger.

Burial was made in the Lusk Cemetery beside a daughter who was killed in a car accident a few years ago. The casket bearers were Virgil Quinn, Walt Schnorenberg, C.E. Marvin, Lewis Lee, Leonard Seegrist and Donley Unruh.
