PIONEER CALLED TO FINAL REWARD DURING WEEK
Mrs. T. O. Nasby, Resides Here 46 yrs.
Mrs. T. O. Nasby, a resident of this community for 48 years, passed away at her home on South Ninth street, Sunday evening [28 Oct 1929] at the age of 73 years. She had been ill for about 10 days, and suffered a stroke Friday from which she failed to rally.
Randine Jacobson was born at Alvien, Bergen, Norway, the 24th of Sept. 1856. There she was baptized and confirmed in the faith of her fathers. She emigrated to America in 1883 coming to Estherville. The 17th of June the same year she was united in marriage to Tollef O. Nasby. They lived here continually, making their home on the farm in the southern edge of the city, now occupied by the son Jacob Nasby. since the death of her husband, Sept. 1925, she had lived at her home on South 9th street, together with her eldest daughter Christine. On October 12 she was taken sick and her condition was felt to be rather serious considering her advanced years.
Friday morning she never fully regained consciousness. The end came peacefully last Sunday evening at 6 o'clock. Beside the above named children she leaves the daughters, Nilsine, instructor and Dean of Women at Waldorf college, Forest City, and Josephine of Nora Springs. There are two grandchildren, Sylvia Ruth and Tollef Owen Nasby. There are also three sisters and two brothers in Norway. Shortly after her marriage she united with the Estherville Lutheran Church where she and her family have had their church home since, Mrs. Nasby was a home loving woman whose earnest desire was to raise her children in the fear and admonition of the Lord.
Her love and devotion has been beautifully requited by her children's loving devotion to her in the evening of her life. The funeral was held Wednesday at 1:30 from the home and at 2:00 o'clock at the Estherville Lutheran church, Rev. L. A. Mathre conducting the service.
