Olson, Otto S. (27 MAY 1889 - 27 MAY 1929)

Funeral services for Otto S. Olson, whose death was reported in this paper last week, were held at the Norwegian Lutheran Church at Curtiss, Clark County, Wis., Thursday afternoon, May 30, 1929, Rev. Skagen officiating, and interment made in the Pine Hill Cemetery north of Curtiss. He was a young man of fine moral character and was held in high esteem by all in Curtiss and vicinity, which was shown by the large crowd of people who turned out for the funeral, which was so large that it was necessary to hold the services outside as all could not get into the church.

Mr. Olson was born May 27, 1889, on the old home place near Curtiss, where he lived all his life, with the exception of one year attending the Northland Academy and two years attending Colby High School. He was married to Miss Emma Goesch, who survives him, April 12, 1913, and bought his father's farm April 20, 1915. He served as mail carrier on R. 2, Curtiss, for eight years.

He was taken sick Wednesday afternoon, May 22nd, which developed into bronchial pneumonia and seemed to be recovering from this when on Sunday afternoon, May 26, acute dilation of the heart developed, and in spite of all that loving care and skilled physicians could do, he passed on to the distant shore on May, 27, 1929, being his fortieth birthday.

Besides his wife, he leaves three children, Elda, Wayne and Merwin; five brothers, Oluf of Neillsville; Tony at Withee; Peter at Tripoli, Mike at Sherwood, Fred at Colby and his father at home.
