PAGE 2B JEWELL COUNTY RECORD, MANKATO, KANSAS THURSDAY, MAY 18 :+ ;, Halsey Pangburn - Obituary tta]sey Melvin Pangborn, son and oldest of the children of Melvin and Vivia Fogo Pang- born, was born at the family farm near Burr Oak, Kansas on October 7, 1888. At that time, the small town of Otego was the social center for the families living on the stir- rounding farms, and ttmre he formed many of the early friendships v, hich were to last a lifetime. To his own family, he spoke but rarely of his youth. One must surmise that he had two great interests: a Sunday School class taught by his own mother and composed of the young wen who were to be come that circle of fh'st friends: and the clarinet which he learned to play so well hy himself after ouly a few les sons that its practice and the many bands he played in were his principal avocution for 60 years. He was married to Sue Na omi Poets of Mankato on New Year's Day of 1910, and theh' fifty-~even years together were marked by the pleasur~ they shared in making friends and preserving friendships long af tar occasion migi~t arise to se parate them by many miles. They might live on farms near! Mankato or on the family farm near Burr Oak; they i might be in business in Oregon or Illinois or Jewell (City);1 they might be in the service of Methodist Children s IJomes in Kansas, Nebraska, or Illinois; or at last in retirement in Mankato. The result was al ways more friends, and ad dress books crowded with eor- respundents' names from ev erywhere. Family, too, was important. On the one hand, he shared hi~ mother's fascination with an cestral history: on the other, he was intensely, but never ostentatiously, devoted to the children and grandchildren who came after him. When he died on May 9, 1967. those whom he left to remember his life with quiet gratitude, were his wife, Sue; his dough tar, Mrs. Lucille Sacker(, and her husband; a son, Cyrus, and his wife; five Sackett grandchildren and ten great grandchildren, and three Pang born grandchildren. To these must be added his sister, Flor erme, and the hundreds of oth. er kinsmen and friends. Mr. Pangborn was Mways a member of 'fhe Methodist Church and, iii later years, an Odd Fellow, frequently holding office .in church and lodge. In a 1903 preface to a brief history of the family is this wise maxim: "Those who neithm know nor care about She deeds of their ancestors have no incentive to emulate or surpass them.; q'hose who do both know and care have a constant stimulus to endear or/' He was faithful to his in- heritance. When Halsey was old enough for his mother to a~e his fidelity confirmed, she wrote in that history: "Char acteristic of Pangborn men is their purity of life and their readiness to help in any good work." Pallbearers were I.O.O.F. members from Jeweil: M. E. Eaton, Harold Knarr, Leslie Wiles, W. E. Hoffer, Ralph Arasmith and Marvin Eber- hart, Honorary pallbearers were: Earl Day, Itetble Doud, Guy Ortman, Clarence Pixler, Arby Cole, Cecil Modlin~ Loren Fogo and George Lockwood.
