Funeral services for Frederick Spinder, who died early Sunday morning will be conducted at 8:00 p.m. at Leamington and grave side services will be conducted Friday at 2:00 p.m. at Midvale.
Mr. Spinder was born in Switzerland in 1895 and came to the United States with his parents when he was a year old. The family settled in Logan. He married Elizabeth Wiley of Logan, Sept. 8, 1920. The couple lived in Midvale until 1939 and then moved to Leamington where they have since resided.
He is survived by his widow, two sons and two daughters; John Spinder, with the Army air forces; James, Wanda Lee and Betty Spinder of Leamington. Also an adopted son, William Meaham in the U.S. Navy; the following half-brothers and sister, John, Joseph and William Bengi and Mrs. Louise Hansen, and his step-father Franz Bengli of Weston, Idaho. ###
An addendum by daughter Betty who was 6 at the time of his passing and by now all my siblings have passed on. The time of the services could be right, I remember my father's casket was in our living room during the time of his passing.
Also, my father died in the caboose of the train from a heart attack. It is my understanding that he was called back by Union Pacific as it was during the war and there was a shortage of help. That was why we moved to Leamington, Utah. He had worked for Union Pacific prior to this time during which time he had his heel cut off by a train and suffered infection a long while.
