Mrs. I. A. Obel Passes Away
Death Came as a Sudden Surprise to Her Many Friends in City
Had Undergone an Operation
The Sad Funeral Services were Held at the Residence of C. K. Nau

The sudden death of Mrs. I. A. Obel was a severe shock to her many friends in this city. Mrs. Obel was operated on here in the early part of March. Her husband came from Mason City and remained here until all danger seemed to have passed. He had hardly reached home however, when a message announced his wife was passing away. He returned to this city of the first train but did not reach here in time to receive his wifeís parting words.

Mr. and Mrs. Obel have been married but a short time having moved to this city immediately after their marriage in October 9th, 1915. During their residence in this city they have made many friends and it was with regret these friends saw them move from here to Mason City. Mrs. Obel was here on a visit when she was stricken with the illness from which she never recovered.

Bertha Tatina Seglum Obel was born in Ekeroen Norway on August twenty fourth 1886. She came to this country after her graduation from High school in Norway and studied in the Clyde Hygenic school in Chicago from which she was a graduate. She died in this city on March the 9th. The services were held at the home of their close friends C. K. Nau, the Rev. J. J. Aker officiating. The remains were laid to rest in the Oak Hill cemetery.

Members of the Masonic order and Eastern Star attended in a body. The floral offerings from the friends here and in Chicago were fitting tokens of the high esteem Mrs. Obelís friends had held her in the daily walk of life. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, March 14, 1917)
