Eston Moncrief, 92, of Wyaconda died February 27, 2004, at the Clark County Nursing Home in Kahoka.

He was born the son of Elmer B. and Floda (Dorsey) Moncrief on January 12, 1912 on the family farm southeast of Wyaconda. He lived and worked on that farm his entire life. He resided in the same home since he was five years old.
