Death: Sep. 17, 1937

Oscar Torgerson and Clara Lewison were married 8/28/1916. Attendants were Nordeen Lewison and Lizzie Lewison.

From the Austin Daily Herald, September 18, 1937:
Oscar Torgerson of the Torgerson Mercantile establishment of Adams died at Rochester yesterday morning following a short illness. Mr. Torgerson, 49 years old, was taken to Rochester Sunday for treatment but failed to rally from the illness from which he had been suffering for several weeks. He had been confined to his bed, however, only since a week ago Thursday.

In addition to his wife he is survived by three children, two sons, Donald and Sidney and one daughter, Eunice, his mother, Mrs. Carrie Torgerson of Adams, a brother, Nordeen V. Torgerson also of Adams and a sister, Mrs. Elgar Thune of Oak Park, Illinois. Funeral services will be held at 2:00 o'clock Sunday afternoon from the home with Rev. A. A. Brevik officiating.

From the William Dean Book: 9/13/1937 "Our good neighbor Oscar Torgerson is critically ill with a heart ailment. Two doctors and ambulance came came down from Rochester and took him. As you know, he is certainly one of the kindest of all men, still young. It would be a terrible blow to lose him."

From the William Dean Book: 9/20/1937: "Our good old friend and neighbor Oscar Torgerson died last Wednesday and was buried yesterday. He was taken ill two or three weeks ago, suffered untold agony it seems. Haven't heard yet what the cause was, either tumor or brain or blood clot on heart, maybe they don't know. He was only 47. He was kindness itself. I thought a great deal of him. He was a great asset to the store, although he did not know much of anything about the biz end of it, but he could sell goods, and was universally well beloved."
