Mrs. N. J. Rose
Another of Estherville’s good pioneer women passed away last Sunday, January the eighth, at the Birney hospital in this city. Mrs. Rose had been ailing for years with rheumatism. Her heart was weak from the effects of her long sickness. It was found she was suddenly afflicted with a burst appendix. She was rushed to the hospital for an operation. The chances with her condition were a mere nothing. Mrs. Rose has lived here for years and her friends are numbered by here acquaintances.

Linda Oskerson was born November the first, 1886. She came to Iowa with her parents when she was but two years of age. She was educated in our schools and grew to womanhood here.

She was united in marriage to N. J. Rose of this city on November 18, 1889. There were born to this union five children, Maud and Hazel, George and Alfred, all living. Harold, having preceded her in death.

She leaves to mourn her death a husband and four children, seven grand children, four sisters and three brothers.

The funeral services were held from the Baptist church on Tuesday afternoon and the remains laid to rest in the family lot in Oak Hill cemetery. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, January 11, 1928)

Mrs. Nate Rose
Mrs. Linda Rose, wife of Nate Rose, of this city, passed away at a local hospital Sunday morning. In an effort to save her life from a ruptured appendix she was operated on and while she seemed to rally and made some little improvement she took a sudden turn for the worse on Saturday.

Mrs. Rose was but 61 years of age having been born in Wisconsin on Nov. 1, 1866. Forty-two years of her life were spent in Estherville coming to Iowa with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Norris Oskerson, when 2 years old.

She was married on Nov. 18, 1889 to Nate Rose. Five children were born to them, two daughters, Mrs. Maud Johnson of Estherville and Mrs. Hazel Forran of Des Moines, and three sons, George and Alfred and Harold who preceded her in death.

Her passing is deeply mourned by the husband, four children, seven grandchildren, four sisters, three brothers as well as by other relatives and innumerable friends whom she has made during her many years of residence here. There are very few people in Estherville who have not met Mrs. Rose and to know her was to respect and admire her.

Funeral services were held Tuesday afternoon at two o’clock from the Union Baptist church, in charge of her pastor, Rev. Frank Yearnd, and interment was made in Oak Hill cemetery. (Vindicator and Republican, Estherville, IA, January 11, 1928)
