Fall Fatal to Mrs. Charles Nelson
Funeral Services to be Held at Church of God Thursday Afternoon
Many Ida Grove people were saddened this week to learn of the death of Mrs. Charles Nelson, which occurred at 10:45 a.m. Tuesday morning, January 21, at St. Vincent’s hospital, Sioux city, where she had been removed after sustaining a serious fall last Wednesday, January 15. In this fall, her hip bone was crushed and owing to her years, it was impossible to perform an operation. A few days after the injury, she sank into a stupor and remained in that condition until death came as a relief.
Tilda Johnson was born June 28, 1861 in Skrane, Sweden and lived to the age of 68 years, 6 months and 23 days. She came to America at the age of sixteen years. She was married to Charles Nelson, September 17, 1880. Her husband preceded her in death June 14, 1928. To their union ten children were born, nine of whom survive their parents, G. A.
