THE LARNED EAGLE-OPTIC, 20 December 1901
Obituary of LOUIS ARTZ
Death of Louis Artz

Louis Artz, one of the oldest and best known residents of Pawnee county, died at his home in this city Tuesday forenoon. Mr. Artz had been suffering from paralysis, the first attack occurring about two months ago. He apparently recovered from the first stroke, but soon afterwards became the victim of a second attack, and after rallying a little was taken down the third time, the last attack terminating fatally, as noted above, after a couple of week’s of intense suffering.

The funeral occurred Wednesday afternoon from the family residence, Rev. C. D. Hestwood, pastor of the Methodist church, conducting the services. The remains were buried in the Larned cemetery by the members of B. F. Larned Post, No. 8, G. A. R., Mr. Artz having been an old soldier. The deceased leaves a wife and family of grown children.
