Obituary. Mrs. A.D. Nelson was born on a farm in Grand Meadow township, Clayton county, Iowa, Oct. 21, 1854. Her birthplace became her home during her stay here on earth with the exception of a few years stay here in Postville. She was united in marriage to Andrew Nelson, May 6, 1874. This union was blessed with seven children, six girls and one boy.
Mrs. Nelson was blessed with a stong constitution and a cheerful disposition. Her good cheer and helping hand will long be remembered by her near and dear ones especially. Last September it pleased the Lord to remind her of the fact that this earthly tabernacle was not an eternal abiding place. From that time she was slowly failing in health. As in health, so in her sickness, she was the same patient, cheerful mother.
She passed away quietly at three p.m., Feb. 8th, leaving to mourn her departure, her husband, six children, one sister and a brother. Blessed by the remembrance of a kind and loving wife and mother; the crown of glory is now hers; the life in Christ she began here is now to be completed in the heavenly mansion promised her as well as all believers in the saving power of Jesus Christ.
The funeral services were held at the home in Postville last Friday, Rev. C.C. Casper, pastor of the Methodist church, officiating. The remains were then taken to the home on the farm and further services held at the Norwegian Lutheran church, interment being made at the cemetery near there. In this connection, the family wish to thank the friends for their many kindly acts and comforting words during the illness and burial of their beloved wife and mother.
