In Jan. 1955, the couple moved to a farm east of Wolbach, where they farmed and milked cows for many years. In Jan. 2001, they moved into St. Paul. Art was baptized in the Catholic faith. Art worked hard all of his life and was an excellent mechanic, always loving to tinker with motors. He had a great sense of humor and loved casino trips and driving his Model A car in local parades and fairs. In addition to his wife and daughter, Art was preceded in death by his parents; sons-in-law, Ron Kruse and John Rother; grandson, Dustin Rother; sister, Lois Rodgers; and four brothers, Orely, Donald, Billy and Raymond Hart.

Dear Family, I wish to express my sympathy regarding your loss of Art. The Bible at 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 encourages us to comfort one another. Jesus Christ brought comfort to many who were previously unknown to him. He also brought great joy to many grieving families by bringing thier dead loved ones back to life again.(John 11:25) Jesus states at John 5:28,29 that there will be a future resurrection. His heavenly father, Jehovah promises that He will end death, pain, tears and mourning. (Revelation 21:3,4) I hope that my sincere condolence will help comfort you during this sad time. God cares for you. (1 Peter 5:7)
