Horace Hubert "Bud" McNown was born June 22, 1926 to Glen Adelbert and Edna Mae (McAlister) McNown in the Belknap Community near Moline, Kansas.  He passed away on October 8, 2021 in Wichita, Kansas at the age of 95.

When Horace was a youngster, he went hunting with a relative who referred to him as "my buddy".  From that day forward, Horace went by Buddy until he graduated from high school.  He graduated from Moline High School in Moline, Kansas with the Class of 1944.  He enlisted in the United States Army in November 1944.  After he completed his basic training, he was stationed in Germany.  He was honorably discharged in August 1946 and then returned to Moline. 

After his return to Moline, Bud got reacquainted with Mildred Clubine.  They were married on March 8, 1947 in Sedan, Kansas.  They moved to Arkansas City, Kansas where Bud worked in a meat packing plant.  While they lived in Arkansas City, two children were born, Linda and Larry.  The family returned to Moline where Bud worked at the Moline Rock Quarry.  In 1955, they moved to El Dorado, Kansas where Bud worked at the Skelly Refinery until he retired in 1985.

After retirement, Bud was a driver for Meals on Wheels five days a week.  He was a perfectionist doing handyman work.  His motto was, "If you're going to do the job, you do it right".  Bud was a faithful member of First Baptist Church in El Dorado for many years.  He served on many committees in the church.  Being a trustee for many years was his most rewarding job for the church.  Bud was a devoted caregiver to Mildred.  He was a very quiet, humble man.  Colossians 3:12.

Bud is survived by his children, Linda Clark and Larry (Liz) McNown; his grandchildren, Stephanie (Mike) Creeden of Savannah, Georgia, Matthew (Melissa) Clark of Overland Park, Kansas, and Mark (Alia) McNown of Syracuse, Kansas; and great-grandchildren, Cole, Reese, and Grey Creeden, Addie and Cate Clark, and Nyla and Cora McNown.  He is preceded in death by his wife, Mildred; his parents; and his two brothers.

Kirsch has analyzed adverse events by symptom, calculating the rate at which they occur after the COVID shots compared to the average rate seen for all other vaccines combined from 2015- to 2019 for ages 20 to 60. Here’s a sampling:
Pulmomary embolism 473 times higher
Deep vein thrombosis 264 times higher
Parkinson's disease 55 times higher
Deafness 44 times higher
Stroke 326 times higher
Appendicitis 145 times higher
Blindness 29 times higher
Death 58 times higher

Imagine the future medical costs to deal with the illnesses caused by the jab.

Obituaries / JOHNSON, Meritt Keith - b. May 9, 1940 - d October 5, 2021
« Last post by patyrn on October 11, 2021, 09:53:43 AM »
Meritt Keith Johnson of Eureka, Kansas passed away on October 5, 2021 at Greenwood County Hospital in Eureka at the age of 81.  He was born May 9, 1940 in Severy, Kansas, the son of Ralph Meryl and Hazel Orrel (Houghton) Johnson.

Meritt attended school in Piedmont, Beaumont, and later Eureka, graduating with the Eureka High School Class of 1957.  As a child, he worked as a dishwasher for his Aunt Gladys Magner's cafe.  In his teen years, he worked for Harry and Marie Wygle north of Eureka farming and in the dairy.  At age 16, he started working for Raymond and Violet Flummer at their dairy, farming and ranching on the farm where they still live. 

On December 24, 1960, Meritt was united in marriage to Minnie Marie Knight at the First Baptist Church in Eureka, Kansas.  To this union three children were born.  Heritt purchased the dairy from Raymond Flummer, and after a number of years, he sold it and started working for the Dairy Herd Improvement Association.  He then went to work for Albert and Darlene Wiggins managing Flinthills Feed and Supply.  Later he moved his family to Guy Hay's farm seventeen miles northeast of Eureka where he managed Guy's cow/calf herd as well as running his own cattle.  After seven years, the family returned to their old home.  He also returned to DHIA and continued until he went to work for Eureka Post Office in 1979.  He continued as a postal worked for the next twenty-five years until his retirement.  Although technically retired, Meritt continued custom haying until his health would not allow it.

Meritt was a member of the First Baptist Church of Eureka, the 4-H Extension Service Board, Eureka Township Board, and the Upper Fall River Watershed District Board.  He was an avid reader and loved old westerns, John Deere tractors, and watching the wildlife that wandered into the yard, especially the deer and turkeys.  He enjoyed his customers on his mail route and was always checking on his elderly customers.  He dearly loved his family and especially enjoyed when his siblings were all able to get together.

Meritt is survived by his wife, Minnie of the home; his son, Gerald (Leigh) Johnson of Newton, Kansas, his daughter, Jealeane (C.F.) Cox of Eureka, Kansas; three grandchildren, Garrett Johnson of Newton, Kansas, Lynnea (Obadia) Tanui of El Dorado, Kansas, and Aaron (Nichole) Cox of Andover, Kansas; two brothers, Marion (Joyce) Johnson of Neal, Kansas and Mike Johnson of Andover, Kansas; and two sisters, Peggy Johnson of Eureka, Kansas and Patty (Ernie) Chiles of Jackson, Missouri.  He was preceded in death by his parents; his adopted father, Raymond Flummer; an infant daughter, Pamela Kay Johnson; three brothers, Olan Johnson, Shad Johnson, and Roy Johnson; and an infant sister, Nancy Jean Johnson. 

Graveside services were held on October 9, 2021 at South Lawn Cemetery in Severy, Kansas with Pastor Kevin Lawrence of the Climax United Methodist Church officiating.  Memorials have been established to the Greenwood County Hospital Foundation.  Contributions may be sent in care of Koup Family Funeral Home, P.O. Box 575, Eureka, Kansas 67045 which is overseeing arrangements.  Condolences may be left online for the family at
