Martha Finkelson was born in Adams Township Feb. 4th, 1867. Later that year she was baptized by Pastor Olson, and after some years was confirmed by Pastor Eggen.

On October 24th 1886 she was married to Theo. Bagstad, and the following year they moved to a farm east of Austin.

During these years she grew in her faith and love for her Master, Jesus Christ, and the assurance of her salvation became more real to her.

In 1889 Mr. and Mrs. Bagstad bought a farm in Marshall Township, and they remained in that locality for several years until 1904 when they moved to Adams, Minn.

In 1922 they moved to Lyle where they have since lived.

Mrs. Bagstad was called home to be with her Savior Monday evening Oct. 13th, after a lingering illness.

Surviving is her husband, Theo. Bagstad, and an adopted daughter, Mrs. Baltzell, a sister, Mrs. Hendrick of Minneapolis, a number of nephews and nieces, and a host of friends.

Blessed be the memory of Mrs. Theo. Bagstad.
