Mrs. Anna Aberg, wife of Louis Aberg, died at her home in Cresco Jan. 20, 1916, and was buried Saturday, Jan. 22. Interment at Oak Lawn cemetery. She was the daughter of Hans Iverson and wife Betsy, nee Berdahl, and born in Berdahl, Norway, Feb. 3, 1865. At the age of two years she emigrated with her parents to America and settled in Dane county, Wis. At the age of eight years she moved to Chickasaw county, Iowa, where she grew to womanhood. Sept. 15, 1884, she was married to Louis Aberg. This union was blessed with ten children, two of whom preceded her in death.
Mrs. Aberg is survived by an aged father, her husband and the following eight children: Mrs. Otto Gunderson, Ridgeway; Mrs. Theo. Gunderson, Cresco; Theo. Aberg, Cresco; Mrs. John Hommer, Bonair; Henry Aberg, Davis Corners; Louis, Anna and Marcus.
A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
And yet as Christians we do not mourn as those who have no hope. He who said: "I am the resurrection and the Life" has given us a right to hope for a like inheritance as that to which this hard worked faithful wife and mother has just passed.
The funeral was conducted by Rev. H.N. Norman, the services at the house being in Norwegian, and those at the First Lutheran church in English.
The attendance was quite unusual, showing that Mrs. Aberg had many friends who had gathered to show their sympathy to the bereaved and their respects to the deceased. The Lord comfort the sorrowing.
