Lars H. Savereide, 82, long time Estherville resident, died at 7:30 p.m. yesterday [24 August 1948] of a heart attack while being taken in an ambulance to the Park View clinic. He had been in failing health for about four months and suffered a severe heart bloc about a week and a half ago.
The deceased was born Dec. 8, 1866 at Savereide, Sonhordland, Norway. He learned the shoe repairing trade in Norway, coming to the United States when he was about 21. In this country he first lived in Morris, Ill., where he operated a shoe repair shop. At Morris, he was united in marriage at an early date to Mary Christianson, who died about 1903. In 1906, Savereide married again, to Pauline Fossel of Morris.
In 1915, he moved to Estherville where he has lived ever since. In Estherville, he operated a shoe repair business for 33 years.
Savereide was an active member of the Estherville Lutheran Church and acted as Presentor there for 26 years.
Besides his wife, he is survived by nine children, four, Harry of Waterloo; Ole of Chicago, Arthur of Harlan, Mrs. Mable Luce of St. Paul, Minn., by his first wife, and five, Mrs. Thelma Seiglaff, a missionary in Africa, now in Norway on her way back to the United States; the Rev. Cyrus Savereide, Hillsboro, N. D., Mrs. Louise Hay, Emmetsburg; Arnold, Tallassee, Ala., ad Mrs. Imogene Goslin, Estherville, by his second wife, 20 grandchildren and one great grandchild.
Services will be held in the Estherville Lutheran church at a time to be decided later. The Rev. C. M. Hanson will officiate at the burial rites with interment at Estherville Lutheran cemetery.
