SOLDIER, Iowa -- Arnold Melby, 99, of Onawa, Iowa, formerly of Soldier, passed away Wednesday, Nov. 25, 2009, at Elmwood Care Centre in Onawa. Services were 11 a.m. Saturday at Soldier Lutheran Church, with the Rev. Meggan Manlove officiating. Burial was in Soldier Lutheran Cemetery. Arnold was born Dec. 22, 1909, in Moorhead, Iowa, the son of Adolph and Lena (Evenson) Melby. He was raised in the Moorhead area, where he attended country school. He and Vesta Price were united in marriage on June 28, 1933. The couple made their home in Mapleton, Iowa, and he worked for the W.P.A.

In 1948, they bought a farm in Dunlap, Iowa, where he retired in 1979. Vesta passed away Dec. 25, 2002. He was a member of Soldier Lutheran Church and cherished being able to ring the bell on Sunday for many years. He loved music and played the violin at neighborhood house dances. The couple enjoyed traveling.
