Gynther O. Flattum, 95, of Lanesboro, a retired farmer, died April 7, 2003 at Gundersen-Lutheran Hospital in La Crosse, Wis., where he had been a patient one day. He had lived at Harmony Health Care Center the past 10 months.
He was born April 27, 1907, in rural Lanesboro and attended Flattum School in Highland through the eighth grade. On Nov. 21, 1931, he married Lillian Rosheim. They lived in rural Lanesboro before moving into Lanesboro in 1980. Mrs. Flattum died Aug. 1, 1985. Well-known for old-time fiddling, he had won several fiddling contests, was the opening entertainment for the annual Lanesboro celebration for several years, and volunteered and played fiddle at area nursing homes, including while as a resident of the Harmony Care Center. Survivors include two sons, Verdon (Marlene) of Palm Desert, Calif., and Darrel (Karen) of Rochester; five grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; a brother, Kermit (Eleanor) of Mabel; and a sister, Gladys Jones of Illinois. Four brothers and six sisters preceded him in death. A memorial service was held April 9, 2003 at Elstad Lutheran Church in rural Lanesboro, with the Rev. Wade E. Davick officiating. The body was cremated. Interment will be in the church cemetery at a later date. Johnson-Riley Funeral Home in Lanesboro was in charge of arrangements.
