Mrs. Anderson Passes Away

Mrs. N.N. Anderson passed quietly away at the home of her son, C.O. Anderson, early Saturday morning after an illness of several months that had kept her bedfast and had caused intense suffering.

Mrs. Anderson had lived in Soldier and on a farm near here since the early days and always willingly done her part towards the upbuilding of our community. Mr. and Mrs. Anderson moved to Soldier several years ago when they returned from the farm. When both of them became ill and no longer able to take care of themselves, they were taken back to their old home farm where Mr. and Mrs. C.O. Anderson gave them all of the care and comfort that was possible for anyone to give.
