"Nels Barsness of Raboin called beyond Friday. Nels J. Barsness passed away at his home in Raboin at 12:30 noon on Friday, the 25th at the age of 41 years, 7 months and 11 days. He was a hard working man and tried his best to make a home for his present wife and two children by a former marriage, his first wife having preceeded him in 1918. He was remarried August 2nd, 1929, to Miss Edythe Carlson and has since made his home in the vicinity of Raboin. Mr. Barsness had been ailing for the last few years from cancer, which finally conquered him. During his illness he learned to cling to his Savior as his only hope and was willing to obey the call. His wife was a faithful nurse, caring for himn day and night. He is survived by his wife and two children Alton and Mrs. Ed Sather, both of Cass Lake, and by father, mother, and seven brothers and two sisters. He was baptised and confirmed in the Lutheran faith. Funeral services were held in the Immanuel Lutheran Church at Cass Lake and interment in the cemetery in Hart Lake."
