(June 1, 1887 – January 10, 1939)

Many Attend Rites For Mrs. Carl Rone
Services Conducted by Rev. Tolo at Lutheran Church: Been in Poor Health 6 Years
Funeral services for Mrs. Carl T. Rone were held last Thursday afternoon at 1:30 o’clock at the Klein funeral home on south 11th street and at 2:00 o’clock at the Northwood Lutheran church where a large crowd gathered to pay their last respects. The Rev. Arthur J. Tolo, pastor, was in charge of the rites. Burial was made in the Lutheran section of Sunset Rest Cemetery.
Agnes Rodtvedt Rone was born in Webster, South Dakota, on June 1, 1887, and died Tuesday, Jan. 10, 1939, at the Rone farm home three miles south of Northwood at the age of 51 years, 7 months and 9 days. She had suffered an illness of more than six years’ duration and was confined to her bed with cancer during the six months prior to her death. Mrs. Rone was the daughter of the Rev. Christian M. and Anne Dahlby Nodtvedt, and was baptized and confirmed by her father. She received her high school training in the St. Olaf Academy, Northfield, Minn., and in 1915 was graduated from St. Olaf College, Northfield. She came to Northwood that fall as history instructor in the high school, a position she held for four years. On Sept. 11, 1919, she was married to Carl T. Rone and with him established their home on the farm south of Northwood. Mrs. Rone was known by all as one possessed of the true attributes of Christian motherhood and wifehood, and she strove to serve her family and her church until the weakening effect of her illness made that no longer possible. Her husband and daughter, Carol Ann, ministered to her with never failing devotion during the later months of her illness. While residing here she had been a faithful member of the Northwood Lutheran Church. Besides her husband and daughter, she is survived by her mother, Mrs. Anne Nodtvedt, Northfield, Minn.; three sisters, Josephine Nodtvedt, Northfield, Mrs. Edward L. Fore, Minneapolis; Mrs. Leo J. Jolly, Minneapolis, and one brother, the Rev. Magnus Nodtvedt, Fort Dodge, Iowa. Her father and a sister preceded her in death. Relatives of Mr. and Mrs. Rone who came for the funeral services were the Rev. Magnus Nodtvedt, Fort Dodge, Miss Josephine Nodtvedt, Northfield, Mrs. E. L. Fore and Mrs. Leo J. Jolly, both of Minneapolis, Mr. and Mrs. Brede Wamstad, Osage, Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Raecker, Waverly, Mrs. Joseph Moen, Alden, Minn., Ralph Mellem, Mason City, Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Synder, Albert Lea, Minn.
