      Well-Known Lady Dies
      After a long illness with a heart disease which developed into dropsy, Mrs. Maren Anfinson died peacefully at her home in Norway township on Sunday evening, April 18th. The funeral took place on Wednesday at the Highland Prairie church and was largely attended by friends and neighbors, deceased being one of the most popular and highly respected residents of that locality. Rev. Kr. Magelssen officiated at the last sad rites. The late Mrs. Anfinson, the widow of Ole Anfinson, would have been sixty years old if she had lived until July 4th next. She was born in Stod, Norway, but came as a child of ten years with her parents to Fillmore county in 1859. She was married in 1880 to Ole Anfinson, who preceded her into the great unknown six years ago. For many years the couple lived on a farm in the outskirts of Lanesboro, and their friends in this neighborhood included all who knew them. Four childre were born to them and survive their parents, they being Mrs. Bert Wilberg, Miss Mathilde, Oscar and Richard Anfinson. All were present at the funeral, as was a brother of the deceased, J.R. Groettum of Minneapolis. Deceased is also survived by three step-daughters, Mrs. G. A. Hoel of Lanesboro, Mrs. C. O. Dunnum of Hannaford, N.D., and Mrs. Otto Wold of Alexander, N.D. The late Mrs. Anfinson was a good Christian woman, a loving wife and mother, and her kind presence will be sadly missed. The surviving family have the sympathy of the whole community in their sad bereavement. [2]
