Mrs. Aarestad is Victim of Cancer
Died at Home Southwest of City Last Friday Morning
Death came to relieve the suffering of Mrs. Anna Aarestad at her home southwest of Cooperstown on Friday morning, May 27th. Death resulted from internal cancer from which she had been a sufferer since last summer when she submitted to an operation in an attempt to remedy it.
Funeral services were held on Memorial Day form the home at which Rev. E. O. Hagen officiated, following which the remains were conveyed to the Westley church where Rev. Hagen was assisted by Rev. A. Vatne. Burial was made in the church cemetery.
Mrs. Aarestad was born in Birkrem, Norway, on May 27, 1853, and passed away on the day of her seventy-fourth birthday. She grew to womanhood and was married at that place coming to Griggs county with other early settlers in 1883, following her husband, Andrew Aarestad, who had preceded her the year previous. They took up a homestead five miles southwest from Cooperstown and ever since she has made this community her home.
Surviving are six sons and three brothers, the latter being T. T. Fuglestad of Cooperstown and Gotfred and Thomas Fuglestad, both living in Norway. The sons are: Hans Aarestad of New Norway, Alberta, Torkel of Juanita, Ingval of Binford, John of McHenry and Casper and Elmer of Cooperstown. Mrs. Aarestad’s husband preceded her in death nine years ago, while a son, Stephen, died in 1904.
