Obituary—Selma K. Olsen
The death of this most estimable lady, which took place Tuesday of last week at the Lutheran hospital in LaCrosse, was briefly mentioned in our last issue. She had been in ill health for about a year, and a month previous was taken to the hospital for treatment, death being due to heart trouble.
Selma Karoline Olsen, second oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Olsen, both deceased, was born in Taylor township, this county, Oct. 8, 1878, and resided there practically all her life. She was always a kind neighbor and friend, ready and willing to help others, and never giving a thought to herself, and during her last illness remained cheerful, happy and thankful to the kind friends who remembered her.
Deceased is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Wm. Claudy, of McGregor; and Miss Amanda; and one brother, William, at home, for whom she kept house the past twenty years.
The remains were brought from LaCrosse last Wednesday, and the funeral held at 1 P. M., at Old East Paint Creek church, Rev. A. P. Lea, assisted by the choir, officiating. Her pall bearers were: Carl Johnson, Leonard Johnson, Carl Dehli, Theo. Pladsen, Herman Hanson and Henry Olson. Interment was made in the cemetery adjoining the church.
