Mrs. John G. Garvue died at her home 2 1/2 miles northwest of the village, Wednesday, May 5th, 1926, after an illness of a good many years duration, of asthma. A short time ago she had an attack of the flu, which hastened the end.

The funeral was conducted Saturday at the home at 1 o'clock and at St. Peter's Lutheran Church at 2 o'clock, Rev. V. M. Keiper officiating, interment taking place in the Old Lutheran Cemetery near the track north of town. Her five sons and one son-in-law acted as pallbearers.

Alice Hagen was born in Sauland, Norway, May 20, 1856, and only lacked fifteen days of the 70 years mark at the time of death.

On Aug. 10, 1882, she was united in marriage in Sauland to John G. Garvue of Hertudahl, Norway, and in May 1888 they immigrated to the United States, coming to Dorchester Country. Six children were born to them who survive their parents. They are Gilbert who resided with the mother, O. W. of Stevens Point, Thomas E. of Mobridge, S. D., Andrew J. of Minneapolis, Minn., John C. of Abbotsford, and Mrs. Ed Pazdernik of Rhinelander. All of them, and Mr. Pazdernik and children, were here for the funeral.

Mrs. Garvue was one of our pioneers whose ranks are thinning fast. Quiet, unassuming and ever ready with a cheery word to help where she could. "She hath done what she could," could easily be said of these loving mothers who have helped to make this land of ours what it is and may God bless their memory and comfort those who are left to mourn.
