      Local Man Dies While Visiting in Lewiston; Wife Killed in Accident Seven Months Ago.
      Closely following his wife in death, Louis C. Boehl, 67, died from a heart attack last Tuesday at Lewiston, Ida., where he and daughter Louise were visiting. The family home here is in Columbia Valley Gardens, 2103 Oak street.
      Mrs. Boehl was fatally injured last Fourth of July when a car driven by her husband crashed in a head-on collision with a Portland car on the Pacific highway near Kalama. Mr. Boehl had never fully recovered from injuries he sustained at the time and from grief over his wife’s death.
      The body will be brought here next Tuesday and funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. at the Ditlevsen funeral home. The two surviving sons, Harold and William of this city, and a cousin Mrs. William Plunkett, left for Lewiston, upon receiving word of the death and with the daughter will accompany the body here.
      Before moving to Longview 11 years ago, Mr. Boehl lived on a homestead in Clearwater county in Idaho. At the time of his death he and his daughter were visiting a sister-in-law, Mrs. Frank H. Atwood, of Lewiston.
