    Notes 
    • In the 1940 census, Art, Margaret, and Richard lived on a rented farm in New Market Twp. Margaret had had two years of college but the census recorded her occupation as housework.



      Evey recalls that Art invited Margaret to church with him one Sunday. “The seating arrangement with men on one side and women on the other caused some uncertainty in what to do. They decided to sit together on the men’s side. I thought it looked kind of funny to see Miss Klefstad over there with all the men. She probably wasn’t feeling too relaxed, either. Gradually this segregated seating came to an end at the church.”

      From the program at Art’s funeral:

      Arthur Raymond Ellingboe was born in Scott County, Minnesota, on August 2, 1912, to Ole and Rose (Thompson) Ellingboe. He was raised on his parents’ farm and attended the nearby country school.

      On June 17, 1936, he was united in marriage to Margaret Oline Klefstad. They farmed together in Scott County until 1941 when they bought and ran their own farm in Dakota County, north of Northfield, until 1948. Arthur and Margaret then moved to Northfield and later, in 1952, to their longtime home in Waterford where they raised their two sons. Arthur began working at Dr. Garlie’s Veterinary Clinic as Office Manager and Vet Assistant, retiring in 1977. Not one to stay idle, he then worked at the Northrup King Research Station in Stanton for the next ten years.

      Arthur was involved as a volunteer with the Civil Defense Organization in the area and a longtime member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Northfield. He and Margaret spent a number of winters in Arizona, largely in Apache Junction. In 1995, they moved to Parkview Manor in Northfield.

      Arthur died on Sunday, January 12, 2003, at Abbot Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis at the age of 90.

      He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Margaret, sons Richard (Debera) of Eugene, Oregon, and John (Catherine Cella) of Edina, Minnesota; eight grandchildren, two great grandchildren, sisters Beulah (Lloyd) Luckman of Northfield, Minnesota, Helen Henry of Minnetonka, Minnesota, Evelyn (Gaylord) Horwath of Faribault, Minnesota, brother-in-law John Menne, sisters-in-law Anna and Veola Ellingboe, and many other relatives and friends.

      He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Edwin and Oscar, and sister Jeanette. Another sister, Ruby Linderholm, died several hours after Arthur.

      In the Northfield city directory, Art shows up in 1950 and 1953. In 1950, his address is shown as 1112 Union Street and his occupation as “Bookkeeper, Adolph O. Garlie.” In 1953, there is a similar entry for that address (including “sp. Margaret”) but there is also one for 1109 Winona Street in which Art is listed as “Asst., Adolph O. Garlie.” Apparently the veterinarian that Art worked for was Adolph O. Garlie (#15744) until 1965 but by 1967 that vet is David A. Garlie.
