Obituary of Mrs. Regina Boe
Mrs. Regina Boe, maiden name Nelson, was born in Stavanger, Norway in 1892. She was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran Church of Norway. Came to America in the year 1910 and came first to Radcliffe Iowa, where she lived five years. She was joined in Holy Wedlock to Mr. Berge Boe 30th day of December 1915. This union was blest with five children, three boys and two girls. January 1916 Mr. and Mrs. Boe moved to Emmet County near Gruver and have lived there since. Mrs. Boe was taken suddenly ill on Sunday morning, January 3rd, and brought the same day to the Coleman hospital in Esthervllle. Every effort was made by the doctor's to save her life but all in vain. She passed away Monday morning, January 4th. She was at the time of her death thirty-three years, four months old. Those to mourn the loss of a dear wife, mother and sister are: Husband, Mr. Berge Boe; children, Byrne Anton, Ruby SeDell, Archie Raymond, Edward Allen and Regina Beatrice; sisters, Mrs. Carl Larson, Radcliffe, Iowa; Mrs. Nels Harrestad, Lake Mill, Minn.; Mrs. G. Nelson, Mlnot, N. D.; brothers, Nels Nelson, Minot, N. D.;
Paul Nelson and Nlcolous Nelson, of Stavanger, Norway.
Funeral services were held at the home north of Gruver and at the Palestine Lutheran Church. A great host of friends, relatives and neighbors had met up to pay the last respect to Mrs. Regina Boe who was dearly loved by all who knew her. Funeral services were conducted by T. Hanson, both at the home and the church. The choir sang some beuatiful funeral songs both at the church and the cemetery. Mrs. Regina Boe was laid to rest at the Palestine Lutheran cemetery west of Dolliver. We heartily sympathize with the husband and children in their loss and bereavement of dear wife and mother. May the Lord give them grace to say: "Thine will be done" even though it cuts to the very heart to do so. God bless them to cast all their burden upon Him and He will take care of both the father and children who were left motherless.
