Osmund T. Ostenson, who has been ailing for some time, died Sunday at his home six miles northeast of Lyle. Ever since he had the flu last year he has not been in good health, but it was hoped that he would be spared to enjoy life many years in the community where he had lived since he was born and where he was so highly respected as an upright citizen. The many kind and sympathetic words that have been spoken regarding the deceased is an indication of the high esteem in which he was held in the community.

The deceased was born on the farm in Nevada township, March 18, 1876, and was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Tollef Ostenson. In the year 1897 he was united in marriage to Miss Bertha Enerson. To this union five children were born, who, with the devoted wife and mother, are left to mourn the death of a kind husband and a tender, loving father. Besides his father, Tollef, he leaves two brothers, A. T. Ostenson and Oliver Ostenson, also one sister, Mrs. Olaf Goldberg.

The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon and interment was made in the family lot at the Six Mile Grove cemetery. Rev. G. Storasli conducted the funeral services.
