Severson, Iver (16 Sept. 1865 – 22 Apr. 1918)
Iver Severson, a prominent and highly respected farmer residing in the town of Albion south of Black River Falls, passed away Monday morning at his home. He was taken to the hospital at Eau Claire about three weeks ago suffering with cancer of the stomach, and was brought home last Saturday.
The deceased was born in Norway, September 16, 1865, and died at the age of 52 years, 7 months and 6 days. He came to America when ten years old and his family immediately settled in this county which has since been his home. The deceased had resided on the farm where he died for 28 years. Mr. Severson was married on April 14, 1888, to Miss Ida Peterson, a daughter of Peter Peterson. She survives him as do five children, namely, Peter, town of Albion, Julian, Alberta, Canada, Mrs. Fred Doehr, Marshfield, and Misses Mildred and Beatrice, both at home, besides other relatives and many friends.
A funeral was held at 2 o'clock this afternoon from the Little Norway church in charge of Rev. L. S. Marvick and Undertaker Mattson. The deceased was a leading member of the S.A.F. and the Beavers lodges, a large number of the members being in attendance. Julian and Mrs. Doehr, the two children from a distance, attended the funeral.
