Martha Hedberg, 97, Lake Preston, died Sunday in Kingsbury Memorial Manor in Lake Preston. Martha Olson was born January 18, 1890, on the family farm north of Lake Preston. She was a member of North Preston Lutheran Church and attended school in the north Lake Preston area. She married Aaron Hedberg March 8, 1911 at North Preston Lutheran Chuch. They farmed in that area until 1916, when they moved into Lake Preston. Mrs. Hedberg had been a member of Lake Preston Church since that time. Her husband died in 1959. Mrs. Hedberg lived with her daughter for eight years. She moved into Kingsbury Memorial Manor in 1968 because of health problems. Survivors include three sons: Clarence, Lake Preston; Floyd, Glen Allen, VA; and Kenneth, West Bend, WI; three daughters; Selma Hanson, Lake Preston; Mabel Hedberg, Minneapolis; and Alice Peterson, Albuquerque, NM; 12 grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren; two brothers Albert and Martin, both of Lake Preston; and three sisters: Ella Jensen and Nellie Larson, both of Sioux Falls; and Alvina Jensen, New Ulm, MN. Services will begin at 10:30 A.M. Thursday in Lake Preston Lutheran Church, with burial in the Lake Preston Cemetery. Visitation will be this afternoon and evening in Johnson-Henry Funeral Home, Lake Preston, and before services Thursday in the church.

Martha's daughter, Selma, tells that in 1924 or so they moved to the south edge of Lake Preston where they operated a cattle feed lot for another party. They also lived near Hetland in 1926 for a couple of years then back to Lake Preston.
