Rites Held In Denver July 26 For Former Local Resident

As briefly mentioned in these columns last week, Mrs. Olive (Victor) Brundeen, of Denver, Colorado, a former resident of Akron vicinity, departed this life at Denver General Hospital, on Monday July 22, 1963, at the age of 62 years, 7 months and 12 days.

Olive Christine Nelson was born In Hassel, Attmarby, Sweden, December 10, 1900. During infancy and youth she was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran church of her native land.

In December, 1919, she crossed the ocean to America and came to Akron, Iowa, where she lived with Mr. and Mrs. John Frisk. On November 22, 1920, she was united in marriage with Victor Brundeen in the Augustana Lutheran parsonage, Sioux City, Pastor O. N. Olson officiating. At first they lived at Spink, Union county, S. D., and later they lived in Westfield, Ia., where Mr. Brundeen operated a garage. In 1943 they moved to Denver, where she had since resided. Mr. Brundeen passed away February 1, 1960.

Those who survive her departure include her son, Alfred, at home; her sisters, Mrs. Anna Frisk, of Akron, la, and Mrs. Karen Winder, of Sweden; her brother, Nels Nelson, of San Francisco, Calif., and other relatives. Her sister, Mrs. Ingeborg Johnson, of San Francisco, and her brother, Edwin Nelson, of Sweden, preceded her in death.

The funeral service in her memory was held July 26 at the Hoffman's Mortuary in Denver, with the Rev. Paul Hansen, a Lutheran pastor, officiating.
