Theodore Arneson was born Oct. 30, 1854 in Solor, Norway, and emigrated to America in 1882. He made his home with Mr. Martin Hanson, south of Mona the first three years. He was united in marriage to Miss Lena Larson in 1885. They settled on the Arneson farm where he resided until his death, Jan. 23. Mr. Arneson had always been in good health, until about two weeks before his death, but appeared as well as usual until the evening when he was taken suddenly ill, and died.

Mr. Arneson was a faithful member of the Mona church for nearly 50 years. He will be greatly missed by his many friends, to whom he always proved to be a true friend during the many years he was given to spend in this community.

Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Langehough from his late home, Friday Jan. 27th at 12 P. M. and at the Mona church at 12:30 P. M. there being a large number present, regardless of the stormy weather.

He leaves to mourn his loss, his devoted wife, Mrs. Lena Arneson,and one sister, living in Norway. Profuse floral offerings decorated the chancel of the church. A memorial wreath was given by the Ladies Aid of the Mona church, and one was given by friends in his honor.

His trials and his griefs are past.
A blessed end is his at last.
He bore Christ's yoke and did his will,
And tho he died, he liveth still.
