MRS. ANDREW JEPPESON DEAD
Another home was saddened by the departure of the wife and mother last Tuesday morning, when Mrs. Andrew Jeppeson passed away after a lingering illness of several months. Mrs. Jeppeson had been a resident of Milford for only about a year, but during that time she had won a place in the hearts of all who came in contact with her. Most of the time since coming here she has been in very poor health and for several weeks past she was confined to her bed, suffering from diabetics. She passed away quietly at about five o'clock Tuesday morning.
Anna Josephine Pherson was born in Sweden on March 19, 1887, and when but four years old she came with her parents to America and the family settled at Montesano, Washington, which place was her home. until 1915, when she came to Milford with her husband and little daughter. She was united in marriage to Andrew Jeppeson on April 23,. 1907, at her home at Montesano, Washington. To this union one child was born, a daughter, Thelma. She leaves to mourn her loss the beloved husband and daughter, of Milford, and a father, mother and four brothers, residing in Washington. She was a member of the Rebekah Lodge in Washington.
All that the care of loving relatives and.friends and all that medical skill could do was given to make her last days as easy as was possible.
The funeral services were held yesterday afternoon, at 2 o'clock in the Congregational church, conducted by Rev. Dr. Baker, the pastor, and interment was made in Milford Cemetery.
