Services For Mrs. Dahlberg
Held Today in the Church of Christ; Died Suddenly Tuesday [February 25, 1941] Morning From a Heart Attack

The suddenness with which death can snatch its victim was again proven in Estherville when Mrs. A. H. Dahlberg passed away suddenly at her home early Tuesday morning.

Earlier in the evening Mrs. Dahlberg had been visiting at the Geo. Case home, neighbors of the Dahlbergs. She retired as usual and did not complain of any undue pain or illness. She became ill about two o’clock in the morning and called to her granddaughter, Miss Dorothy Waldron, who was making her home with the Dahlbergs. A doctor was summoned but Mrs. Dahlberg had passed away before he arrived. Mr. Dahlberg was returning from Armstrong where he had attended a meeting of the Odd Fellow’s lodge at the time of his wife’s passing away.

For a number of years Mrs. Dahlberg had been in poor health suffering from diabetis but her sudden passing away from a heart attack was a great shock to her family and friends.

Mrs. Dahlberg was born in Nortigen, Wiltz county, Luxemburg, Germany on June 11, 1877. When she was seven years old she came with her family to the United States. They settled on a farm near Elkton, South Dakota. On December 3, 1895, she was united in marriage with Andrew Dahlberg at Brookings, South Dakota. The couple made their first home in Pipestone, Minn.

In 1908 they moved to Estherville, purchasing the home on second avenue north in which they now reside. Mr. Dahlberg was employed on the Rock Island railroad until a few years ago when he was pensioned.

Four children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Dahlberg, two of them having preceded their mother in death. They were a son Carl Edward, who died in infancy, and a daughter, Ruth, who passed away on August 26, 1940.

In her earlier years Mrs. Dahlberg united with the Church of Christ and she had been an active member of the church and its various organizations. She was also an active member of the Rebekah and Royal Neighbors lodges. Mrs. Dahlberg was a woman who enjoyed her home and family above anything else. She was a kind neighbor and a good friend and her long residence here has given her a large circle of friends and her absence from their group will be greatly noticed.

Funeral services were held this (Thursday) afternoon at 2:00 o’clock at the home and 2:30 at the Church of Christ with the Rev. Fred. D. Sawyer officiating. Burial was in the Oak Hill cemetery.

Pallbearers were Clarence Kurtz, Wayne Van Devanter, Lloyd Boone, G. T. Tostenson, John Weir and Glen Story.

Besides her husband, Mrs. Dahlberg is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Pearl Dippold of Columbia, Mo., Mrs. Hazel Black of Fort Dodge, Iowa, and three grandchildren, Miss Dorothy Waldron of Estherville and Robert and Frederick Dippold of Columbia, Mo. Two sisters and two brothers also survive. They are Mrs. Frank Gregor of Elkton, So. Dakota, Mrs. E. S. Christensen of Denver, Colo., Harry Heintz of Marquette, Neb., and Nicholas Heintz of Bushnell, South Dakota. (Vindicator & Republican, Estherville, IA, February 27, 1941)
