Inurnment was in the Black Hills National Cemetery in Sturgis.
Willard was born in Holmes County, Ohio, Oct. 2, 1922, the son of Robert and Lillian (Parsons) Carnahan. He attended the Millersburg, Ohio schools, graduating from high scool in 1940. He enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1942, serving with the 88th Glider Infantry of the 13th Airborne Division at Fort Meade, S.D., and Camp Mackall, N.C., until late in 1944, when he was re-assigned to an Air Force Medical Unit at Bowman Field, Louisville, Ky.
He married Eldora Brost Nov. 3, 1943, in Sturgis. Upon his discharge from the service in December 1945, the couple lived in Millersburg, Ohio, where he was employed first by the National Tree Surgery Company and later by the Flexible Division of General Motors. In 1952, they moved to Tripp where he owned and operated a variety store until it ws destroyed by fire in 1959. During that time he studied watchmaking and repairs with the Chicago Watchmaking Institute. From 1959-61, he worked as a watchmaker for Dahle Jewelers in Mitchell. In 1962, he opened Carnahan’s Jewelry and Gifts in Tripp, which he operated until his retirement in 1985.
He was a member of First Congregational Church, Sioux Falls, a past member and officer of the Tripp Commercial Club, and a member of various veterans’ and hobby groups. After his retirement, he and his wife enjoyed traveling and doing volunteer work. Some of his work included serving as co-supervisor of the remodeling of Tripp’s public library; with his wife, spearheading a fund drive for the expansion of Tripp’s Good Samaritan Center; supplying gifts for disabled veterans; and, for many years, making toys to donate to charitable groups for distribution to needy children at Christmas.
He passed away Saturday, April 5, 2014, in Sioux Falls, at the Sioux Falls Veterans Affairs Hospital, where he received exemplary care from their gifted and compassionate staff. He attained the age of 91 years.

Ruth (Simonson) Barram, 97
March 4, 1917 - April 12, 2014
Ruth Barram, 97, died Saturday, April 12, at Avera St Benedict Hospital in Parkston, after a long and well lived life. Funeral services were Tuesday, April 15, at 7:00 p.m., with a visitation held at 5 p.m. at the Salem United Church of Christ in Parkston, with a private family burial the following day. Koehn Bros. Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
Ruth’s parents, Robert and Marie Simonson, emigrated from Sweden, and Ruth was their first child, born March 4, 1917. She was the oldest of three children, growing up in Los Angeles, California, with her brother Milton and sister Mae.
Her values and religious views were shaped primarily by the Swedish Covenant Church community in downtown Los Angeles. Ruth graduated from Franklin High School as the class valedictorian and worked for the Southern Pacific Railroad, and then moved briefly to Chicago where she attended Moody Bible Institute, meeting her future husband, Norman Barram. Her time at Moody was cut short, as she was needed at home to help care for her mother Marie, who had tuberculosis and died July 4, 1940.
In August of that year, she and Norman were engaged to be married, and after a few additional years with the railroad in Los Angeles, she returned to Chicago in 1943, where she began working for the Milwaukee Railroad in the downtown area.
Norman graduated from Moody Bible Institute in August, and Ruth and Norman were married shortly thereafter, Aug. 15, 1943, at the Swedish Covenant Church in Los Angeles, to begin what was to become an amazing life journey together.
Ruth and Norman began their missionary work in the Belgium Congo, commissioned by the Evangelical Covenant Church, where Ruth coordinated the activities of the mission station, started the first boarding school for missionary children and learned to cohabitate with snakes, bugs and all manner of scary things foreign to a girl from Los Angeles. Their daughter, Ginny, came to the Congo with them, and over the next years, Bill and Carolyn were born. They served together as partners for 12 years in the Congo until they were forced to leave in the midst of a violent upheaval as Belgium gave Congo its independence in 1960. Ruth returned to Chicago, where she and her children waited for Norman who stayed behind for an additional year.
Two years after leaving the Congo, Ruth and Norman were asked to move to Alaska, where Norman would start a seminary for the Covenant church. While Norm served as the pastor of the Covenant Church of Unalakleet, a village of 600 people, Ruth was a faithful partner in helping him to manage the affairs of the church. A highly competent administrator, Ruth also was a talented musician who played the piano, coordinated the Sunday school and hosted the many guests who came to the village at various times. They also were actively involved with the Covenant High School in Unalakleet.
Ruth and Norm then moved to Nome, where Norman was appointed the Superintendent of the Alaska mission field, traveling extensively to the many villages where the Covenant church had pastors. They assisted in the work of the Covenant radio station KICY and were active in supporting the Nome Covenant Church. Eventually they moved to Anchorage, Alaska, to pastor the First Evangelical Covenant Church, staying there for seven years while serving the church and supporting the missionary efforts in the rest of the state.
In 1977, Norm and Ruth felt called to the Sioux Falls Covenant Church, where they stayed until 1985. Among their many activities, the church sponsored a live Christmas pageant at the Hagedorn Farm in Tea, “Journey to Bethlehem,” which was visited by tens of thousands of people over the years. They stayed in Sioux Falls for eight years until their retirement from the Covenant in 1985.
After their retirement from the Covenant Church, Norman and Ruth were invited to the pastorate of the Bayside Community Church in Valdez, Alaska, where they reacquainted with old friends and had a wonderful life together until their second retirement in 1992. They made their final move to Parkston in 1992 to be near their family after spending 43 years traveling the globe. Los Angeles, Chicago, Belgium, Congo, Alaska, and South Dakota. Quite a journey together as they spread the message of God’s love.
Ruth was a wonderful woman, kind to everyone and with a gift of hospitality which had no bounds. No one who entered her home left a stranger. Her vaunted Christmas list was in the hundreds, even at the age of 97. She was an extraordinary partner to her husband who attributed much of his success to her quiet and capable hand moving behind the scenes. She was a loving and caring mom to her children who still hear her voice pointing us in the kind direction as life unfolds. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren will miss the many handwritten cards, letters, and phone calls they received, for no other reason than to express her love.
Ruth is survived by her children, Jon and Ginny Mitchell, Carolyn Larson, and Bill and Kathy Barram; a sister, Mae Simonson, seven grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
