Died Lena E. Osmundson, oldest daughter of John and Caroline M. Osmundson, died at her home in Emmet township March 24th, 1896, aged 29 years 5 month and 4 days [October 20, 1866]. Sixteen years ago, while residing in Illinois, during a cyclone she received an injury from which she never recovered. All the years of her life from that time were years of patient but sad suffering. A few days before her death brain fever set in and resulted in death. Her funeral was held at the Lake Side school house Friday, March 27th, conducted by Rev. H. G. Pittenger of the M.E. church. Her remains were laid to rest in Oak Hill cemetery.

Why should our tears in sorrow flow
When God recalls his own,
And bids them leave a world of woe
For an immortal crown.

(Emmet County Republican, Estherville, IA, April 2, 1896)
