    Notes 
    • In the death of Mrs. John Eggen, which occurred at the family home at 8:15, Sunday evening, February 13 (sic) (Sunday evening was February 15), another respected resident of Rushford has passed to her rest. Mrs. Eggen had been in poor health for about a year, having at that time, sustained a stroke of apoplexy, but for some months had been gradually improving. Recently she had suffered from an affection of the kidneys which was the ultimate cause of her death. Mrs. Eggen, whose maiden name was Olene Amadia Colberg, was born in Levanger, Norway, November 27, 1850. She came with her parents to America in 1867, living in LaCrosse for a short time, then the family moved to Rushford. She was married June 9, 1871, to John Eggen. This union was blessed with eleven children, of whom five have gone before; four dying in infancy and Bertha at 28 years of age. The others, who with the husband, mourn the death of a beloved wife and mother are: Alfred J., Conrad A., Ambrose I., Daniel L., Edgar H., and Florence L. Eggen. All of the family, excepting the eldest son, Alfred, who is in Cuba, were at her bedside when death came. She also leaves one sister, Mrs. John Melba of Moorhead. Mrs. Eggen has been a life long member of the Lutheran church and was devoted to its welfare, and was also an active member of the local W.C.T.U. Mrs. Eggen will be greatly missed not only by her immediate family but by her many friends to whom she was endeared. The funeral will be held at 2 o'clock this afternoon from the residence, Rev. R. Jaastad conducting the services.
