S.D. Frost Of Leola Passes Away
One of Best Known McPherson County Men Succumbs to Long Illness There
S.D. Frost, one of the best known citizens of Leola, died last Saturday of tuberculosis which followed an attack of the influenza which he suffered a year ago.
The body was taken back to Ambel, Lee county, Illinois, where Mr. Frost made his boyhood home. Mr. Frost’s death is a great shock to scores of Aberdeen people, who knew him well.
For many years he was a rancher and store keeper at Leola, but retired from business when his health began to fall. He was prominently identified with the business life of Leola and that part of McPherson county and was known all over the northern part of the state.
He was the first president of the Farmers Cooperative Packing company of Huron and held that position until a few weeks ago when he resigned because of ill-health. He is survived by his wife.
