The funeral of Mrs. O. T. Lund, an old resident of Lyle was conducted last Saturday from Six Mile Grove church. Mrs. Lund was born on the homestead of her parents just across the state line, May 20th 1861. In 1886 she was united in marriage to O. T. Lund, for many years a prominent merchant here. Mr. Lund died April 19, 1913. The family sold out the business shortly afterwards, but continued to reside here for a number of years. A year ago last fall they disposed of their beautiful home and moved to St. Paul, living at 1265 La-Fond St.

For many years Mrs. Lund had been in poor health. Last September she met with an accident as a result of which she was confined to her bed for several months. About a month ago she suffered an attack of pleurisy. Though very ill at first, her condition began to improve so that hopes were entertained for her complete recovery, but Tuesday morning Mar. 1, she passed away very unexpectedly.

Funeral services were held in the home, Friday afternoon, after which her remains were taken to Lyle for interment. Her body now rests beside that of her husband in the Six Mile Grove Cemetery.

A large number of relatives, friends and former neighbors gathered at the church when the funeral sermon was preached by Rev. Chr. Anderson of Minneapolis.

Mrs. Lund is survived by five children, Ruth, Cora, Rebecca and Thurman of St. Paul, and Mrs. Alice Ford of Pendleton, Oregon, also by two brothers, Hans Ashley of Lyle and Theo. Ashley of Cannon City, Col, and by one sister, Mrs. Stella Golberg of St. Paul, Minn- Contributed.

We wish to extend our thanks to the choir, to those who decorated the church so beautifully, and all friends who so kindly sympathized with us in the loss of our dear mother.
Thorman Lund and Sisters.
