Maren Lundblade obituary
MRS. MAREN LUNDEBLADE
"Jesus said unto her, I ma resurrection and the life; he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believeth thou this?" St. John 11. 25, 26.
The death angel has been making such frequent visits to this vicinity recently, that many homes are in sorrow and mourning and many others feel the shadow as it rests upon their neighbors and friends. But, what a glorious transformation it is for those who have made preparation for eternity ere the unseen messenger has crossed the portal to beckon them to the land, from whence no man returneth. Such was the case, April 10 1909 when the Lord called one of his faithful ones from this world of pain and sorrow to a home eternal in the Heavens.
Maren Osmundson was born in Sondled Sogn, Norway, Aug. 16, 1861. Her father died when she was but a young girl. She later came with her mother to this country, in 1880, and has since lived in this vicinity. Her mother passed away at her home 9 years ago. Miss Osmundson was united in marriage, July 4th, 1887, to John Lundeblade, who survives her. To them were born two children; Bettie, aged 20 and Emil, aged 18. Mrs. Lundeblade had been sick with tuberculosis about three years. The funeral was held in the Mission Church Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock and interment was made in the Mona cemetery. The funeral service was conducted by Mrs. Angove of Minneapolis and Peter Knutson of Clear Lake.
