Peter, who formerly
resided here. The following account of Mr. Zeihen's death is taken
Could he have so willed it, the brief illness
quiet passing of Peter Zeihen, 56, who was claimed by death about
Saturday, would have been in keeping with his own wish, for
and loved by many, his was a quiet retiring disposition; his main
to serve rather be served.
The well attended funeral yesterday at the
Congregational church and the many floral offerings bore testimony
to the high esteem in which he was held in this community. He had
worked overtime at the plant Thursday and complained of not
feeling well the next morning. He was too ill
to go to work on Friday and became suddenly worse on Saturday when
taken to St. Joseph's hospital by Dr. C.J. Carson. He continued to
and the end came a few hours later.
Born in Wisconsin, he lived in South Dakota and
in the Bitter Root Valley of Montana through the years of his
early manhood. His first wife was the former Nettie Norton who
passed away in Chewelah about 15 years ago. To this union two
children were born: Elizabeth and Clarence Zeihen, both of whom
survive their father. In 1924, he was married to Mrs. Myrtle Hall
and to them a son, Frankie, was born about six years ago.
Mr. Zeihen was construction engineer for the
Termax plant of the Northwest Magnesite company, also the resident
the company on Main Street. The flue at the United Copper mine was
constructed under his supervision.
Besides his widow and three children, he is
survived by three step children: Keith, Dorsa Ellen, and Betty
Jane Hall of Chewelah; his mother, Mrs. Rosalie Zeihen, a brother,
Gregory F, and a sister, Mrs. Robert Parker, all of Stevensville.
