What is the date of the obit?
I found it quite interesting as I have a 2nd cousin, deceased, by the name of Urho Ahola and am wondering if this might be a clue to his wife's maiden name.

Thank you for replying.
It seems this obit and the other are not my Urho Ahola.
But they might be related to 'my Urho's' father, Thomas Valentine Ahola.
I was doubting the 1st obit but figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.
My Urho died in 2005 in Rudyard and I always remember them living in & around the Rudyard area.
I have most everything available on line for Urho, his parents and his siblings.
Thomas Valentine Ahola married my grandmother's sister, Katie/Kreeta Vaiso Tulppo.
Thanks again.
