obit: Willard Britten, b 1914 Iron River
Posted by: Jacqi Stevens (ID *****1846) Date: July 23, 2005 at 16:01:32
  of 43

Through the help of several kind genealogy society members (and others) in Iron County, I have this obit that I'd like to share, just in case others need this info. Willard BRITTEN was husband to Mildred KELLY of Fort Wayne, of our John T. KELLY/Johanna FALVEY line from County Kerry, Ireland.

This obit for Willard was published in the Iron County Reporter, Iron River, MI, July 13, 1988:

"Fort Wayne, Ind.--Willard Britten, 74, of 443 Ruth Street died June 25 at Lutheran Hospital. He was born June 25, 1914, in Iron River, the son of the late Richard and Jennie Britten. He grew up in Iron River and attended local schools and then moved to Fort Wayne, where he worked for Zollner Corp. until retirement in 1980. He was a member of St. Jude's Catholic Church, and he was married to the former Mildred Kelly, who preceded him in death in 1986. He is survived by 3 daughters, Marla Curry and Jeanne Britten, both of Fort Wayne, and Carol Whitacre of New Haven; a son, Richard of Fort Wayne; 3 sisters, Violet Weinert of Globe, Ariz., and Carol Lahti and Vivian Erickson, both of Iron River; and 6 grandchildren. He was also preceded in death by a son, Dennis, in 1983, and 2 brothers, Richard and Warren. Services were held June 29 followed by burial in the Catholic Cemetery in Fort Wayne."
