She had been ill for the past nine months with a heart ailment. Pneumonia set in and after a period of illness she was called to her eternal reward, Monday morning at 5:15.

She was married to K. O. Kvien in Red Wing, Minn, and together they lived a full and active life.

Surviving Mrs. Kvien are her husband, a son John Paulson; three daughters, Mrs. Edith Bauer of Chicago, Mrs. Clara Kessler of Chicago, Mrs. Anna James of Los Angeles, Calif. a number of nieces and nephews; seven grand children and fourteen great grandchildren.

Sometime when all life's lessons
have been learned
and sun and stars for evermore
have set
The things which our weak judge-
ment here have spurned
The things o'er which we grieved
with lashes wet,
Will flash before us out of life's
dark night,
As stars shine more in deeper tints
of blue,
And we shall see how all God's
plans were right
And how what seemed reproof was
love most true.
But not to-day. Then be content,
poor heart
God's plans like lilies pure and
white unfold.
We must not tear the close-shut
leaves apart;
Time will reveal the hidden cups
of gold;
And if through patient faith we
reach the land,
Where weary feet, with sandals
loosed may rest,
Then shall we know and clearly
I think that we shall say,
"God knew Best."
Blessed be the memory of
Mrs. Anna Kvien.

We wish to extend our sincere thanks to all who any way assisted us during the illness, death and burial of our loved one.

We especially thank Rev. Torvik for his comforting words, Mrs. H Eggen, Mrs. Sherman, Mrs. Rustad and the bearers:
