Nielsen, Karen M. (6 JUL 1871 - 28 JAN 1960)


Mrs. Peter Nielsen, nee Bach, succumbed to a heart condition at her home last Thursday.  She had attained the age of 89 years.


Funeral services were conducted from the Nazareth Lutheran Church at Withee Monday afternoon.  Rev. B. Knudsen officiated with burial being made in the family lot at the parish cemetery.


Pallbearers included Harry Bruckslager, Peter Steager, Harold Miller, Andrew Christensen, Lionel Thibbert and Fred Beck.  Carrying the floral displays were Mrs. Pauline Stager, Mrs. Ethel Anderson and Mrs. Selma Heideman.


Born July 6, 1871 in Denmark, Mrs. Nielsen came to Withee (Clark Co., Wis.) with her husband, whom she wed in 1899 in Chicago, in 1901 and purchased a farm north of the village.  Six years later they moved here permanently, living on their farm where she has since made her home. During this period of 53 years she had been active in community and church affairs, being a charter member of the Nazareth Lutheran parish.


She is survived by a daughter, Karen Nielsen of route1, Withee; a grandson, Jorgen Nielsen of Eau Claire; a granddaughter, Mrs. Chris (Ellen) Beck, Withee, and three great-grandchildren.


Her husband passed away in 1944.
