Mrs. Iverson died February 1, 1899. While
she appreciated all that was done by kind and loving hands for her
comfort, she was willing and even anxious to leave this world of
suffering and sorrow for a room in the House of many mansions. Those
who knew her best found her to be a loving mother, a true friend
and a faithful Christian.
Two sons and four daughters are left
to mourn the loss of a dear mother--Henry and Iver Iverson, Mrs.
Daniel Avechouser, Mrs. Frank Mason, Mrs. Theodore Simons and Miss
Anna Iverson. Services were conducted at the house by Rev. Robinson,
and at the Lutheran church at Strong's Prairie by Rev. Hagen.
