Funeral services were held today for Vivian (Bub) Westby, 59, 5737
Standish Ave., Minneapolis, former Worthington man who died Saturday at
a Minneapolis hospital following a lengthy illness with lung cancer.

Services at 1 p.m. were from the Werness Brothers Mortuary, Minneapolis.
Interment was in Fort Snelling National Cemetery.

Mr. Westby was born Dec. 5, 1904 at Bigelow, the son of Soren and Mary
Westby. A graduate of Worthington High School, he worked several years
for the Nobles County highway department before entering college.

In 1930, he received a degree  in pharmacy from South Dakota State
College, Brookings. He was employed as a pharmacist at the Ahlf Drug
Store here for ten years before entering the armed services.

After his military discharge in 1943, he secured a job as pharmacist
with a Minneapolis firm, remaining there 20 years when ill health forced
his retirement.

He and Olive Lickliter, a former Worthington High School teacher, were
married there July 24, 1943. Mr. Westby was a member of Hope Lutheran
Church of Nokomis Park, of the state Pharmaceutical Association, of
Mounted Commandery No. 23, Eagles Aerie 247 and of the Masonic and Odd
Fellows lodges at Worthington.

Besides his wife, he is survived by two sons, James and Jon; one brother
Leon, Sioux Falls; and three sisters, Mrs. William Cosgrove, Dundee, and
Mrs. Robert Yeske and Mrs G.A. Miller, Bigelow.

He was preceded in death by his parents, one sister, and two brothers.
