DEATH TAKES JOHN MLINAR, HOLT COUNTY PIONEER
John MLINAR, 73, a Holt County pioneer who resided in the Green Valley community for 66 years, died at his farm home
9 miles south of Stuart Saturday morning, May 13.
Mr. MLINAR had been in good health until last January when he became ill and continued in failing health until death came
as a final relief from suffering which at times was almost unbearable. He spent two weeks in the Clarkson Memorial
Hospital, Omaha, returning home on April 23.
Funeral rites were in St. Boniface Catholic Church in Stuart Monday morning.
Interment was in St. Joseph Cemetery in Atkinson, near the graves of Mr. MLINAR'S parents, and brothers and sisters
who preceded him in death. The pallbearers were his nephews, Ray CEARNS, Adolph MLINAR, Edward MLINAR, Arthur PACHA,
Anton TASLER, and Lawrence JONAS.
Mr. MLINAR was the son of the late Frank and Caroline MLINAR. He was born in Ringgold County, Iowa, on May 9, 1872.
He came to Holt County with his parents in 1884 and ever since resided on the original MLINAR homestead.
He was married to Jennie MUNT on Dec 27, 1916. To them were born a daughter and a son. They are Mrs. Josephine BRIGHT
of Atkinson and Harry MLINAR of Stuart.
Also surviving are his wife, Jennie, and twin grandchildren, Donald Eugene and Mary Ann, children of Mr. and Mrs.
He was one of a family of 13 children, 5 of whom survive him. They are brothers, Fred and Joe, both of Atkinson; and
sisters, Mrs. Cora TASLER, and Mrs. Pauline DAVIS of Atkinson and Mrs. Mary REISER of Spencer.
Mr. MLINAR led an active life in this community and was skilled in other pursuits besides ranch and farm operations.
He loved outdoor life, and was well known for his skill in hunting, fishing and trapping.
A widely used ranch tool in this vicinity is the heavy duty slide hay stacker which Mr. MLINAR invented. Many of them
had been built by him and his son in recent years.
Members of his family mourn the loss of a kind father and loving husband and cherish the memories of his unselfish
ministries. Friends and neighbors will remember him as a kind and true friend, always ready to lend a helping hand.
Among the relatives who came from a distance to attend the funeral were: Mr. and Mrs. John WILSON of Stickney, SD; Mr.
and Mrs. Joe REISER, Mr. and Mrs. Earl REISER, Mr. and Mrs. Dan REISER, all of Spencer; Mr. and Mrs. John CEARNS and family
of Scottsbluff; Mr and Mrs Walter MUNT and grandsons of Sioux City, Iowa; Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence JONAS, Mr. and Mrs. Lester
JONAS, Mr. and Mrs. Robert JONAS, Mr. and Mrs. Ramon BRIGHT and Mr. and Mrs. Archie BRIGHT, all of O'Neill; Mr. and Mrs.
Raymond MLINAR of Weston.
