    Notes 
    • Miss Aletta Overland, 57, who has been a patient sufferer for the past six months, passed away here Thursday afternoon at the home of her brother, Peter Overland. Miss Overland was born at the farm home at Highland Prairie August 1, 1882, and was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Steiner Overland, both deceased. She had spent her entire life at Highland Prairie. For a number of years she made her home with the Otto Mindrum family, remaining there until her final illness became too severe. Following a stay of a few weeks at the Lutheran Hospital at La Crosse, she was taken to the home of her brother, Peter, where she was carefully cared for until death released the soul of this loyal, devoted and Christian sister and aunt. Survivors are two sisters, Mrs. Hans Evenskaas of Milan, Minn., and Mrs. Alfred Peterson, Rushford; three brothers, Eling (Eddie) of Minot, N.D., George and Peter, Rushford. Several nieces and nephews also survive. Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock at the Highland Prairie Lutheran church with the Rev. Nels Magelssen officiating. Burial was made in the Highland Prairie cemetery. Pall bearers were six nephews, Nordahl Overland, George Overland, Joseph Overland, Lloyd Overland, Norman Mindrum and Harold Peterson.
