A GOOD WOMAN CALLED TO HER LAST REST
Mrs. S. H. Lee Died At Her Home Sunday After Lingering Illness
Mrs. S. H. Lee died at her home north of this city last Sunday after an illness which extended over a year. She was one of the pioneer ladies of this county and had a host of friends and acquaintances who admired and respected her because of her strong character and personality. She came to Emmet county in 1874 from her home in Norway as a young lady and made her home here since that time. In all the years she was ever ready to extend a helping hand to friends and neighbors and made many friends who will miss her kindly word and friendly smile.
Christiana Nelson was born in Norway on October 30, 1847 being at the time of her death within one day of her seventy-fifth year. She was married in Emmet County in 1878 to S. H. Lee and to this union five children were born. They are Hans N., Anna M., Carl O., Arnt T. and Louise. They with her husband survive her, together with an aged sister in Norway and two brothers, Bernt/Ben Nelson of this city and H. C. Nelson of Rice Lake, Wisconsin. They have the deepest sympathy of the entire community in their hour of sorrow.
Funeral services are being held today at the home north of the city at two o'clock. Rev. Berge of the Norwegian Lutheran church is in charge. Burial will be made in the Lutheran cemetery north of this city.
