Arthur Edwin Junk

Arthur E. Junk, 83, of 407 E. Sycamore, Normal, a retired truck driver, died at 11:45 a.m. Thursday at Brokaw hospital after a 2 weeks illness.  His furneral will be at 2 p.m. Sat. at the Stufflefield Funeral Home.  The Rev R. J. Zehr will officiate.  Burial will be in Hinthorn Cemetary at Lake Bloomington.  

Friends may call at the funeral home after 2 p.m. Friday.  

He was born Sept. 18, 1880, at Hudson, a son of William and Lillian Rupple Junk.  He married Emma Shirley Sept. 3, 1925 in Normal, Ill.  Surviving are a daughter, Mrs. Dorthy Gwin, 308 E. Stewart Place, Normal, and two grandchildren.  

He was a member of the Hudson Christian Church, Rebekah Lodge 620 and Odd Fellow Lodge 783.

She then married Harry Sutton.4,7  

Note that there seem to be some inconsistencies with Myrtle.  The book "Hinshaw and Henshaw Families" shows Myrtle married Arthur Junk,3 yet Arthur Junk's obituary makes no mention of her (if this was the same Arthur Junk, which seems likely).  The Hinshaw book also says Myrtle married Arthur on Feb 13 1886,3 a date that was before her birth date! (curiously this date is very similar to the birth date of Arthur's mother: Feb 13 1856).  It is possible that Myrtle and Arthur were divorced sometime before Arthur's (second) marriage in 1925 [speculation].
