Obituary - Laurine Madsen Frandsen was born in Denmark the 14th day of September, 1879. At the age of 19 she came to America and settled with her parents in Council Bluffs, and there she met Mr. Frandsen and were united in marriage in 1905. To this union were born five children, Martha, Nels, Naomie, Rudolph and Aron. Mrs. Frandsen had only been sick a week, and until the last minute death was unexpected, and when finally came, was a thunderbolt to the entire community. Funeral services were held at the house and then from the Lutheran church of Wolbach, conducted by Rev. Markussen, uncle of Mr. Frandsen, of Cordorva, Rev. Krogh of Luck, Wisconsin, brother in law, Rev. Pedersen of Dannebrog and Rev. Sorensen of Cushing. She leaves to mourn her loss a devoted husband, 5 beautiful children, and a host of friends, 1 brother, L. Madsen of Council Bluffs, 3 sisters, Mrs. Albert Swanson, Mrs. N. P. Christensen of Sheffield, Ill., Mrs. J. Jorgen of Westen, Ia. The service was well attended for she was a lady of beautiful character and one who had marked the path of her acquaintance with close friendships. Floral offerings were both profuse and beautiful, and bore a mute but impressive message of the recognition of a life of great usefulness. She was a devoted mother, a kind and thoughtful neighbor and the heartfelt sympathy of the whole community is tendered the bereaved husband and children.
CARD OF THANKS - We wish to take this means in thanking the many kind friends and relatives for their grateful help and kind condolences extend us during the sickness, death and burial of our beloved wife, mother and sister. Also for the many beautiful floral offerings. Anton Frandsen and family.
