Death: May 26, 1943

Lars H. Petersen, for many years a resident of the South Logan community, passed away early this Wednesday morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Oscar Oakeson at the age of 86 years. Mr. Petersen has been in failing health for several months, ailments incident to old age being the cause of his death.

Lars Hans Petersen, a native of Denmark, was born July 22, 1857 and died May 26, 1943 at 1:30 a.m.

He came to the United States when a young man and lived near Lincoln, Nebraska before coming to Howard county in 1902. He was a progressive farmer, and did his share in building up the community. He was a faithful member of the Lutheran church. An outstanding characteristic was his giving of his means for charitable purposes. In one particular, the Red Cross. He was generally the first one in the community to send in his membership to the Howard county chapter each year.

Mr. Petersen's wife and one son preceded him in death. He is survived by two daughters and one son, Mrs. Eva Sonderup, Mrs. Alice Oakeson and Verner Petersen, all of the Logan community. There are also three grandchildren left to mourn.

Funeral services will be held Friday at St. Paul and interment will be in the South Logan cemetery.
