Westergaard, Hedevig (18 MAR 1840 - 24 APR 1911)

Mrs. Hedevig Westergaard passed away Monday evening, April 24, 1911, at 11:15, at the home of her son Frede Westergaard. Death followed a stroke of paralysis, which she suffered a few days before.

Mrs. Westergaard was born March 18, 1840 in Denmark, and lived a greater part of her life in that country. She came to this village (Withee, Clark County, Wis.) some nine years ago, where she has lived up to the time of her death.

She was 71 years of age when the grim reaper called her to her last home.

Mrs. Westergaard was the mother of five children, four sons, all of whom are living in this country, and one daughter, who is living in Denmark.

Funeral services will be held tomorrow afternoon at 1 o'clock, Rev. Jensen officiating. Burial will take place in the Danish Cemetery.

Those from out of town who will attend the funeral are Mr. and Mrs. Holger Hansen and daughter of Billings, Mont.
