    Notes 
    • Obit - She was baptized and confirmed by Rev. Reque. After her husband died, she in the spring of 1913 moved to Solway, Minnesota where she lived one and a half years, moving to Spring Grove again, where she was again married. She has been blessed with good health and it was only a few months ago that her sickness became such that medical aid became necessary and when she, about three weeks ago, entered the Spring Grove Hospital to take treatment, it was soon found that a surgical operation had to be performed, which took place on Thursday December 22nd. This however could not save her life, as her vitality had weakened to such an extent that recovery was dispaired of and death came on the following Monday December 26 at 12:30. Funeral services were held on Thursday December 29 from the home and the Newburg First Lutheran church, where Mrs. Spande has been an active member the eighteen years that this has been her home. Rev. I Havneros officiated.
