Thygeson, Marie (12 JUN 1852 - 30 DEC 1928)

Mrs. Marie Thygeson, one of the early settlers of this community, passed away at the home of their daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Young, Sunday morning, Dec. 30, 1928, a complication of diseases being the cause of her departure to the distant shore. Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon, Jan. 2nd, at the Presbyterian Church in Abbotsford, Wis., and interment made in The Colby Cemetery.

Mrs. Marie Thygeson was born at Viela, Denmark, June 12, 1852, coming to Racine, Wis., at the age of twenty-two years. She was married to Martin Thygeson at that place on Dec. 24, 1875, and to this union three children were born, one daughter, Mrs. J. A. Young of Colby and two sons, N. C. Thygeson of Proctor, Minn., and Carl Thygeson of Racine, who, with ten grandchildren and one sister, Mrs. Nels Anderson of Racine, mourn her departure. She was one of the pioneers of this section of the country, as she came here with her husband when she was a young woman and settled on the farm which has been her home ever since.
