Wallowa, Wallowa County, Oregon

Services were held Tuesday morning, July 7, in the Salas Brothers Funeral Chapel in Modesto, Calif., for Earl Jackson Refrow, son of Edward and Mary Renfrow, early pioneers of lower Lost Prairie. He was 77 years of age and had been in failing health for some time, although he didn’t enter the Oakdale Hospital until a few days before his death.

The services were conducted by Rev. Eleon Shuman of the Modesto Advent Christian Church of which he was a member, and burial was in Lakewood Memorial Park.

Earl Renfrow was born in Troy, Oregon and had been a rancher most of his life; his dairy farm was at 2766 Morrill, though he has been retired for some years. He was a member of the Standley Lodge 113, AF&AM of Wallowa, Oregon.

He is survived by his wife, Grace L. Renfrow, and their son, Henry Refrow, both of Riverbank; a daughter, Lenore Nickey, of Sacramento; four grandchildren; and one great-grandchild. Of his own family four brothers and three sisters survive: Ray Renfrow and Elmer Renfrow, both living in Alberta, Canada, Dale Renfrow of Sand Point, Idaho, Frank Renfrow of Wallowa, Oregon, Mrs. Clara May of La Grande, Mrs. Ella Torgenson of Forest Grove, and Edna Renfrow of Portland.
