There were sobering moments for the friends of A H Hanson, Saturday morning when it became known that, his spirit had taken its flight during the early hours of the morning, at the hospital at Austin where he had been, about two weeks. For some time he had not been well, but his condition was not considered past recovery until a few days before his passing.

For some time, Mr. Hanson, had not been at his best but he pegged away faithfully until he was forced to lay his tools aside, and rest.

The deceased was of a quiet unassuming disposition, interested in his home, church and community. For a time he had charge of the Bible class in the Congregational church.

Mr. Hanson will be missed in his circle of friends as well as in his family circle. There was a large attendance at the funeral, especially of the old neighbors from the Minnereka neighborhood.

On February 25, 1885 there was born to Nels M. and Caroline Hanson of Nashua, Iowa, a son Albert H. Hanson. The family moved to Minnesota in the year 1898.

In May of 1925, Albert found Christ his personal salvation and since that time has remained in the faith.

He was joined in marriage to Celesta Myhre on the 28th day of June 1925.

After several weeks of illness, part of which time he spent at home in Lyle, he was called home to his eternal rest by His Lord and Master Friday evening July 26th.

The remains were laid to rest Monday afternoon in the Pleasant Hill cemetery. Rev. Torvik had charge of the service.

The pastor based his remarks on the 23rd Psalm, reminding his bearers that the author of it loved his sheep and was qualified to use the imagery. He gave a comforting message to the bereaved, and reminded his audience that there is no discharge from the war against sin. Said he, "At death, one's period of probation is over." For the true believer there is only a shadow of death in the valley.

Besides his wife, Celesta he leaves on this earth, one Brother Norman Hanson of Lyle Minnesota, and two sisters, Mrs. Gena Rawa of Austin, and Mrs. Martin Wold (Lydia) of Lyle; also a son, Theodore Myhre of Austin; and Mrs. Melvin Christopherson, a daughter of Minneapolis. Besides these near relatives, he leaves a number of other relatives and many friends.

Among those who were here for the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. John Wold and Mr. and Mrs. Arne Wold of Blooming Prairie and Mrs. Dora Christopherson of Austin.


Blessed hope that in Jesus is given
In sorrow to cheer and sustain.
That soon in the mansions of Heaven.
We shall meet with our loved ones
Blessed hope! How it shines in our
Like the star over Bethehem's
That we may be with him ere the
We shall meet with loved ones,
there again.

Blessed be the memory
of Albert H. Hanson.


We wish to express our appreciation to those who remembered us by word or deed during the illness and after the death of our loved one, especially Rev. Torvik, the singers and pianist.
